This version of our history seems to be lacking substance.
30 November 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Knowing Billo's politics, I feel violated, repulsed and disgusted that he had the audacity to write a book on this subject.

The only redeeming thing about this film is Rob Lowe. I hope Rob wakes up politically one day. He is super talented and I think he has the wit and intelligence to start seeing what's happening in the party of politics he supports.

I prefer Stone's version on this subject. His film respects Kennedy and his admirers. This film is one dimensional and revolves around the so called official story of the lone gunman. That story has too many holes in it to have as much credibility as this film gives it.

This film is a mistake... it should never have been made. However, I am sure others will follow of this ilk. The conservatives hate the Kennedy family and all they stand for. So they will do anything to wilt and tarnish history in order to be right about their own beliefs and philosophies.
