Review this movie
GerrickC.Oct 30, 2006The film is a resounding bore with very few redeeming qualities. Quite honestly, UK film producers coming up with a fictional assassination of the United States President is idiotic. Please do not see this film.
ChadS.Apr 10, 2007Rather than emulate(to a certain degree) Errol Morris' "The Thin Blue Line", this filmmaker misses a golden opportunity to turn "Death of a President" into a full-blown propaganda film. Imagine if a Warren Commission-like report expressed on film were to broadcast on American airwaves in order to frame some innocent foreigner for the murder of President George Walker Bush. This mock-doc's agenda should've been to protect the killer(s) and hide the truth, instead we're subjected to a rambling(and boring) testimony of the case's history(there are too many suspects; too many dead ends) before an Iraqi male is brought to justice and charged with Bush's assasination. Because of his ethnicity, a canny filmmaker would try to frame him, but "Death of a President['s]" liberal heart bleeds too much on its sleeve and strives for exoneration, as a way to comment on racial profiling and the legalized tyranny of the Patriot Act. "Death of a President" doesn't do enough with its most valuable resource: Vice-President Dick Cheney. If the film insinuated that he took out a sitting president, now you're talking provocation.… Expand
RandyJ-RJ.Oct 29, 2006If you like being politically bored by madman propaganda then go see this hate-eveyone-kill-everyone movie. It is simly wrong and ugly and turns out to be just short and dull. Why not watch it for free on You Tube?
