Good plot, good acting, but something is missing
12 January 2008 | by KillakaiSee all my reviews

Strengths: The acting is good, the characters seem real and make sense and you get to see Katherine develop through her experiences. Very real plot, could easily be an autobiography of one of the weathermen members. They explain why she believes as she does, they don't gloss over her beliefs, she is hardcore, and much of the things that are said in the movie seem like thats how they really happened for many who lived in that era.

Weaknesses: The way the story was told made it bad to me. The talking to the camera interviews especially bothered me. Thats not how you tell a story, you show who she was, by showing her in action. The movie did a good job of showing you who she was by her dialogue and actions, but blew it by having various family members and herself tell you who she is, and why she is the way she is. That is bad story telling.

Overall i think it was worth watching, i think it captures that era pretty well, and shows enough about her politics to make it an interesting conversatoin piece. But the replay value is very low, imo, and the score is horrible.
