This is a difficult to comment movie indeed. Story telling, acting and directing is very good. You see a decent biography, well organized and told quite professionally. On the other hand, I am not sure whether the point is very clear. The movie is not done to criticize Bush, not at all. There is some notion of criticism to Iraq war but Bush is shown to be tricked and misinformed in this particular incidence. So if you want to see a movie that is making fun of Bush and his period of presidency, this is certainly not the movie you are looking for. But don't even think that the movie is praising him, since it is not. So, it seems they tried to make an objective biography but it is more positive about Bush than it should be.
