Storyline

President John F. Kennedy is shown riding in an open-top car with his wife and several others, waving at crowds on the sidewalk. He is hit by a bullet and clutches his throat as the others react with surprise. Another shot hits Kennedy in the head and he collapses. A Secret Service agent runs up to the car, and Mrs. Kennedy climbs onto the trunk to pull him aboard as the car speeds away. Written by Eric Sorensen

It does and it doesn't show ...................
1 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most significant fact is that this film does not show anyone actually shooting. It only shows impacts of bullets after they are fired. So you only get half the story of the Kennedy assassination, if that much.

In fact, there are no films or photographs of anyone in the act of firing a gun in Dealy Plaza that day.

The Zapruder film also does not show any alleged shooters fleeing the area.

Actually the Zapruder film completely misses one man getting shot there, a bystander named Tague. Neither shooter nor shot impact are shown on Zapruder film for Tague, who represents 1/3 of the total number of persons shot in Dealy Plaza.

It also does not show an impact on a cement curb, which was chipped by a bullet according to police.

The only gun shown is a large gun being lifted off the floor of the Secret Service car by an agent, who never used it. I think you get to see a brief glimpse of this one unused weapon, but that's all you get gun-wise.

Immediately after the shooting, the police raced to the alleged room where the shooter was and found: nobody.
