Movie Reviews

Not a history lover? This is probably not for you
DCS | Tucson AZ | 05/10/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I love history and the Lincoln Assassination is a particular favorite of mine. I like to read bios and watch documentaries about all of the conspirators. I am also always on the lookout for videos to show in my high school social studies class so I wanted to check out Biography's look at JWB. Although it was easy for me to follow, I was disappointed overall. The pace of the video is too slow and the background music is overemphasized. If you like history, you might like this video, but will come away with an empty feeling. I am hoping the the good people at Biography will redo the Bio of JWB. He is an important figure in American History and worth knowing about."
So-so production

"very lackluster production that closed with the line that booth was killed in maryland. duh! booth was killed in virginia.........anyway
the same photographs are shown over and over and over, although some of the photographs were ones i had not seen. i will watch it again, and i will keep it as part of my collection, but i wouldnt recommend it to the serious student."
