Not bad, not real good
22 January 2001 | by (la) – See all my reviews

Very simplistic telling of RFK's life, the main problem with this mini-series is the casting of Brad Davis in the lead. At times, with the light right, and his face turned at a good angle, he looks like RFK and you might think this was, in fact, some good casting. But when he speaks, ouch. I haven't seen a mismatched actor for a part since Don Johnson played Elvis. Davis's lisp overpowers his Kennedy accent and any long speech he has to deliver only magnifies it. Not a bad telling of RFK's life, but not noteworthy either.
