About the Movie
Killing Kennedy chronicles one of the most beloved United States Presidents, John F. Kennedy, and the shocking story of his assassination. The movie premiered on the National Geographic Channel and was seen by more than 3.4 million people, making it the most-watched broadcast in the network’s history. This epic journey is the second in a trilogy of books written by Bill O’Reilly and his researcher and partner Martin Dugard that have been adapted for the screen with National Geographic and Scott Free Productions. The first release in the trilogy was “Killing Lincoln,” a powerful display of the outrageous events surrounding the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. The final installment in the trilogy is “Killing Jesus,” which follows the events leading up to the crucifixion.

The Killing Kennedy Blu-ray™ and DVD are loaded with never-before-seen special features that go even deeper into the conspiracy that shook the nation including an extended feature; behind-the-scenes featurettes, as well as an exclusive interview with author Bill O’Reilly!

My Take on the Movie
I felt that this was a strong movie with a strong plot. I thought that Rob Lowe did an admirable job as Kennedy, though there were times that he seemed to lose his character a bit. That being said though the movie seemed historically accurate from my understanding of the days leading up to the assassination. I will say that the movie itself follows the findings of the Warren Commission, so if you believe in other theories you will not find them in this movie. Some might argue that this makes the movie a bit one-sided, but in my perspective it is what the world has been told for the past 50 years. All-in-all I enjoyed this movie and found it to be one that gave me a better understanding of some of the facts that I have read on paper. I encourage all who enjoy history to watch!
