I watch a lot of movies. I watch all kinds. I watch about one a day.(Thanks Netflix) So, when this came out I had to rush out and see it for lots of reasons. One being that its Oliver Stone, the other should be fairly obvious.
For those who want to get excited about the light that this will put on Bush, you may be disappointed. It does not portray him as an evil person whatsoever. At worst, he may be portrayed as naive. He's mostly portrayed a dedicated christian and son to his father. Most of the story shows his good intentions to lead the people. Many times he does play devils advocate to Cheney, Rummy and Rove, in our defense. I can't think of any media treating him like that over the last 8 years. If there is any negativity in this movie it is directed toward some members of his administration, but only because they are actually making poor decisions that cost money and lives and destroy our reputation in the world. In this movie, its them, not Bush. I actually liked him a little bit after seeing in. This doesn't portray Republicans in the best light though. Go see it for yourself before voting. It won't hurt you, but it probably will be noted in your FBI file.
