Highly Recommended The secret service lost the President, so did the nation. The Kennedys lost a son, brother, husband and father just like the Oswalds. The Trauma room Drs were probably never the same again. It was nice to see that the movie focused on how it affected people versus spitting out more conspiracy theories. Well done.
Overview of entire day of Kennedy's death. Loved the facts that were unknown to most people, I.e. Air Force One had to be cut up to fit the coffin, what Oswald's family had to experience, etc. Excellent actors, must see!
Good film I enjoyed it. Short but well done. Covering the events that happened at the Kennedy assassination that day and days following, it was interesting to see the perspective from the hospital, Zapruder, and Oswald's brother.
Honor This movie honors JFK and the events that happened following his death. It was very well done and I am pleased that even today we do not forget the events of the past that carried us to where we are now as a country and as a people.
