So utterly wrong in every detail...
17 August 2000 | by (Skull Island) – See all my reviews

I had high hopes for this after reading the box. It said "Filmed at actual locations." As I watched, I came to the realization that this was a wretched waste of time and film. The only good thing about it was the "actual locations," which included the Texas Schoolbook Depository and all of the Elm street area. As for the rest, bear with me. The most glaring error was Ruby's motivation for killing Oswald. He was portrayed as a broken-hearted man overcome with grief. This couldn't be farther from the truth. All of the events of that Nov. 22nd are out of order. Oswald is shown shooting Officer Tippett in front of a dozen or more people. Didn't happen. I could go on but I'll make it short and sweet: DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN THIS FILM. There, that should do it. Watching this without knowing any of the facts of what happened that day will give you the worst revisionist view imaginable of a terrible tragedy. Score this a 3 out of 10 for the Dallas locations only.
