An in depth look at a man of honor and courage and a truth teller.
29 May 2018 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "HBO" doc on U.S. Senator John McCain is well done and informative and in depth as it takes the viewer to inside access of his political life in Washington D.C. and it shows his humble and gentle side at his Arizona home with family. The footage and access is top notch showing John's days as a POW in Vietnam and interviews with family and friends showed how that affected them and how it would shape John's life.

Shown also is the highlights and the footage of his political life of winning elections in the U.S. Senate and his unsuccessful presidential bids of 2000 and 2008 are discussed. Democrats and Republicans both like Clinton, Bush, Biden, and Obama are interviewed and all give John praise of respect for how he worked well with both sides.

Tough yet humble John McCain always spoke for honesty, and doing the right things as he loved country and freedom first as the doc showcased it so well.
