Excellent, well-balanced documentary on Ronald Reagan ( w/ bashing from the extreme right )
Verified purchase
Right from the front, I am not a fan of Ronald Reagan, and especially not a fan of
the beatification and mythologizing of his deeds and image. I won't go into and
argue all the reasons I dislike Reagan, but I will say I recognize his skill in acting
and self-promotion and it is terrifying for all the reasons the last 4 years have been
so divisive.

This documentary included commentary from all the people who knew him, his
family members now and in interviews from the past. To say it is biased or
propaganda from the Left is to ignore tons and tons of very good information
and stories that reveal who Ronald Reagan was. Maybe the smoother and more
responsible, though not by much Donald Trump of the 1980's.

I think anyone on either side of Reagan could benefit from watching this documentary,
it was very well done. I have to give this a 5/5 for being well done, accurate and
presented in a objective way. The standard definition version is available for sale
on Amazon for $6 which is less than a month's subscription to Showtime. A bargain
and an education to fill in missing understanding of the 80's.

I don't need to tell any serious readers that most of the reviews that detract from this
remarkable work are hissy fits from those who cannot deal with the reality of this
American President without making a big scene. Highly recommended, 5/5.

Attempted Tarnishing of a Great President
An unfortunate attempt at a takedown of Ronald Reagan by leftists. I'm no "right-winger" or trump goon - I consider myself politically independent and have voted for both parties in the past. But, I can honestly say that this, borderline fiction, film (it's not a documentary) is extremely biased with Marxist/BLM leftist commentators, like Wiley and Johnson, and their ideology, whose sole aim is to unabashedly tarnish Reagan's legacy.

No mention of Jimmy Carter's inept handling of the economy and the inheritance of that economy as well as a demoralized nation by the incoming Reagan Administration, who strove for eight years - and succeeded - in restoring America's pride and our place in the world. Not to mention a strong foreign policy which led to the ultimate downfall of the Soviet Union.

President Reagan had missteps and should have taken more action on AIDS (Fauci is right about that) as well as a more nuanced approach to the drug epidemic, and he should've done more to prevent/foresee Iran Contra; but on balance what Ronald Reagan did for America's national pride and our belief in ourselves was unparalleled since FDR. He gave us our national identity back and he is one of our greatest presidents.
