It's not a point by point documentry on his life, or his time as PM during WWII. It seems to try to capture the spirit of the events of 1940 -45. The British performances are very solid, they needed to do a bit better with FDR and did very well with Stalin.
You should also see "When Lions Roared " an NBC miniseries from years ago. All about the Big 3 with excellent performances.
Winds of War is fine, it's very long and the sequel War and Remembrance is filmed several years after the first one was filmed. but not much Churchill is in it.
The Gathering Storm with Albert Finney is another solid performance.
Having said that, this film is good but not great, there are several versions and in all honesty Richard Burton's portrayal of Churchill in the version of the same film is far superior to this version. I would advise anybody wishing to purchase this film, would be better off researching and getting the Richard Burton copy. Overall a far better cast, direction, and portrayal.
I hope you enjoy which ever you decide upon, I make this judgement based on my knowledge of all Churchill movies I have seen and the fact I have all of his books in my Library (First Editions collected over many years) if you require another further information please feel free to write
This movie actually has less Hollywood drama and more actual history than the previous installment. It was fascinating to be inside the War Room at 10 Downing Street. Seeing the decisions made the shape our world as we know it.
It was also commentary on recent ihistory with the vote of socialist power after World War 2.
I cannot recommend highly enough to purchase of this movie especially if you have waited for the sequel to The Gathering Storm.
This would make a fabulous Christmas gift to anyone interested in any sort of World War Two history.
I was very sorry that it ended what seemed to be so soon

Meh. Tried too hard to touch factual milestones and never really developed a plot beyond that.Published 19 hours ago by Johann W. Bodensteiner

Follow up movie to The Gathering Storm (see Gathering Storm first). This is a decent movie, but suffers somewhat with the absence of Albert Finney.Published 1 day ago by Savage
I was disappointed. The characters had no chemistry together and it really just prodded along. I think the Gathering Storm was far more poignant.Published 1 day ago by Carrie DeSantis
