Serious Disappointment
26 August 2001 | by (Atherton, CA) – See all my reviews

I love Churchill and have seen a number of movies on his life. Biograghies and documentaries generally better than fiction.

But this is particularly unsatisfying. First is the childish and almost feminine demeanor of the great wartime leader played by this actor. Hair raising. Next is the British point of view, with overstatement of strategic importance of military power of UK during wartime. Next is almost complete lack of any history except the few encounters they chose to depict. I guess this is in the service of total focus on the generals, per se, which admittedly is the stated goal of the film.

We managed to endure almost 2 hours before agreeing to exit.
