Christopher Campbell Cinematical A must-see for fans of non-fiction film, fans of the 40th president, and even those critical of the man for whatever reason. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 9, 2011 Full Review Kimberly Gadette Indie Movies Online While it's not surprising to see the president's son Ron picking his way through a potential minefield, wanting both to celebrate his father and address his failings honestly, what's the filmmaker's rationale?

Audience Member Separates fact from fiction by revealing the man while acknowledging the myth. Does an admirable job of giving us a full 360 degree look at a life and career that is still felt even today. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member http://filmreviewsnsuch.blogspot.com/2012/04/reagan.html Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Brilliant debunking of the myths that have arisen about the man and an evenhanded look filled with fascinating insights from all sides. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Has It's Moments And Is Fulfilling To The Man But Waivers Unsuccessfully Between The Ideas Of Support For Reagan From The Film And Criticism Of Him. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member An interesting somewhat moderate look at how Reagan became what he was as told by those who loved him and those who loathed him. The best part is the old footage of Reagan from his commercial days, the interview with Ron Reagan Jr and the fact that the idea for his Star Wars security plan came from one of his own B movies! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Recommended viewing for everyone. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
