The story of the assassination of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy who was shot in the early morning hours of June 5, 1968 in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, and 22 people in the hotel whose lives were never the same.
Having watched this docudrama, I can safely say that it was well produced, with good moments of dramatic tension and by-and-large the acting was top-notch. However, despite the excellent production standards there appears to be a flame war going on with people complaining about anti-Clinton bias while other contend that these people were silent with Mike Moore. Let me remind both sides that this docudrama portrays both sides as failing but that because Clinton was in power over a full eight years obviously there would be a greater focus on that period.
But looking away from the political issue, what the production showed was that those who operated in defending the United States each were complex characters. Some wanted immediate action while others wanted more time, looking at the legal issues while there were other characters (Clinton, Albright) who looked at the wider issues in play. This accurately reflects, in my opinion, the different nature of people in our world and it reflects accurately the different level of priority given to terrorism but both the Clinton and Bush Administrations over the period from 1993 to September 11 2001.
