Flawlessly superb!
25 March 2002 | by (Palo Alto, CA) – See all my reviews

This was the absolute best of the Jimmy Hoffa portrayals. Robert Blake even beats Jack Nicholson's portrayal of Hoffa and that's saying a lot. Historically correct, well directed, paced, camera work, and casting. Casting was perfect. The highest tribute I can pay an actor is "he or she did not act the character BUT WAS THE CHARACTER! Looking at Blake was like watching Jimmy Hoffa and Cotter Smith gave the best portrayal of Bobby Kennedy ever. I had the chance to see and hear Hoffa speak in Michigan some time ago. I must state that he was truly a dynamic man.I wish wish this show returned periodically so all could view this magnificent production.
