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.

One of the best books and best TV movies I have ever seen. I do not know if they were that loving toward each other, but who can
know a couple's private moments. It seemed they were very sweet to each other. Some people my age thought Jackie was
a "traitor" for marrying Onasis, but that was her business and no one else's. Rob Lowe was great and all the other acting was very
good.

Well acted, engrossing, and dramatic. The time warp back accomplished in this short film feels very authentic, with believable sets and characters, even down to the FBI agents. Having seen and read much about what occurred during this horrific time in our history, I found the events depicted to seem almost too believable, as if I was watching them in real-time. The moment where Jackie takes the wedding ring off of her fallen husband's hand is heart-breaking. Bill O'Reilly is obviously very controversial, but his novel and this film are borderline-outstanding. The meticulous level of research conducted is very apparent.

This telemovie is essentially a rehash of the Warren Commission's 'Lone Nut' view of the assassination, although it appears to be factually incorrect in some aspects, or misleading, and some details appear to have been omitted.

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.

I read the book first and was surprised and disappointed by the low caliber of this movie. Frankly I was surprised that Mr. O'Reilly was an executive producer. I do not know what else to say. I am a history buff and this movie; be you a conspirator theorist or a "lone gunman" believer this movie reveals nothing new nor is it as riveting as the book of the same title.

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.
