Editorial Reviews

The event that shocked the world and changed the course of American history is now revealed in a new light. From Producer Ridley Scott, and based on the bestseller by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, comes this illuminating thriller presented here as a never-before-seen extended cut! Rob Lowe and Ginnifer Goodwin give galvanizing performances as President John F. and Jacqueline Kennedy in the story about the president's assassination, and its dramatic aftermath. As global Cold War tensions mount and organized crime escalates in the U.S., a young, ambitious man from a wealthy family rises to become the leader of the free world. At the same time, a former dedicated Marine grows disillusioned with America. When their paths ultimately cross, the course of U.S. history will forever change, as chronicled in this mesmerizing film that also stars Michelle Trachtenberg

Customer Reviews

The worst lie is a half-truth, something that isn't false but uses facts to create fiction.
Ray Stephanson
It showed the POTUS at times very vulnerable and it showed Oswald as a man struggling with his inner demons, but also one who truly loved his wife and children.

I will reply once I have read the book however, I too was disappointed with this production that I am certain the book conveys much better.

Rob lowe has his moments of capturing Jfk but it is not consistent. Jackie was a joke as they totally missed the mark in not only casting but simple items like her habit of nail biting. I have seen a better portrayal in previous movies.

Great acting. Mediocre script. Not much new.
My husband and I expected more from this new retelling.
Good study of Oswald's character and motives but a superficial view of John & Jackie.

Format: Blu-ray
National Geographic Channel’s production of Killing Kennedy, which aired on Veteran’s Day last year to mark the 50th anniversary of the presidential assassination on November 22, has appeared on Blu-Ray and DVD video.

The television film, based on media pundit Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book, seems intended as a vindication of the Warren Commission Report‘s conclusion of a lone assassin, portrayed here essentially as an attention-seeking psychotic. I first digested and annotated the 900-page Commission tome (hardly the production of amateurs some have claimed it to be) twenty years ago, alongside conspiracist Jim Marrs’ counter-narrative Crossfire and Jim Garrison’s On the Trail of The Assassins. Today, I remain skeptical of all three, as well as the dozens of other books I’ve read on the Kennedy assassinations, and more recently the growing stockpile of 9/11 material. The truth certainly is worth finding out, now as then, but it’s doubtful that any one source has custody of it. For those who won’t spare the effort for reading O’Reilly’s mere 300 pages, this movie, despite a few strengths, can hardly claim to be more than an outline of one version.

Rather than focus on the hundreds of details the all-too-brief film omits that would problematize its thesis (the many witnesses in Dealey Plaza who saw something other than Oswald firing from an open window, for example,) I’d like to treat the production on its own terms. If one has to say, “Well, read O’Reilly’s book and such-and-such will become clear,” then the film hasn’t done its job.

I gave this movie four stars, despite some definite shortcomings, because I felt it did succeed in presenting the basic story (from a non-conspiracy viewpoint) in a realistic way. The best aspect of the movie is that it gives more consideration to Oswald's life and influences than most other efforts have. While I am probably a "fence sitter" on what actually happened, I have to admit that Oswald's dismal life after his return to the US from Russia seems inconsistent with him being involved in a master conspiracy. The parallel story of JFK and Jackie seems a little romanticized in this movie, but it does make JFK come across more like a real person. The biggest problem with Killing Kennedy is that it seems methodical yet also rushed. Others have observed, and I agree, that it comes across a little like checking off items on a punch-list. I thought Will Rothhaar as Lee and Michelle Trachtenberg who played Marina both did an excellent job. Jack Noseworthy as Robert Kennedy didn't work for me at all. All in all, if you are interested in the JFK Assassination, this is worth watching.

Those of us who were around on Nov. 22, 1963, will never forget the events of that day and the days that followed. We've heard the story told in different ways. Oliver Stone's conspiracy theory film JFK, told the story from Jim Garrison's perspective, which has since been discredited after discovering that Garrison bribed and browbeat his "witnesses". There are countless other conspiracy theory stories. Bill O'Reilly's book told a fairly straightforward version of the facts, good and bad, about JFK and his assassination. The film Killing Kennedy told the story more from Oswald's perspective, which, I feel, was a new outlook on the story. The acting and the direction were both very good. The distracting thing about the film was that it had to be condensed to the time frame allotted by National Geographic to fit in their TV time slot. As a result, the flow of the film had to be hurried. It is a film worthy of watching again.

This film was primarily factual, not theatrical. That being said, the theatrics were pretty good, and other than knowing the actors did not look exactly like the real people, I did not often catch myself calling this a low budget film. At points, the transitions make it out to be a TV flick, and the no-nonsense screenplay may sometimes seem like a History Channel reproduction, but overall the film was good and I'd recommend it. All in all, the movie succeeds at bringing history to life, especially for those who never lived through it--like me!

Film was very informative regarding Lee Harvey Oswald. It was not known to me, or at least, I did not remember that Oswald had murdered a police officer the same day that he assassinated our President. I always wondered about the bruise around Oswald's eye, and the film showed that it was caused when he resisted arrest.
