(5 out of 5 stars)
""In the Face of Evil" is an excellent film about President Ronald Reagan's values, achievements, and career. It is also a substantive account of 20th century foreign policies and history. Reagan supporters will enjoy this movie and others will find it worthwhile. It is appropriate for mature academic settings as well, including courses on comparative political systems, foreign policy, economic history, leadership, etc. This film has the potential to help solidify President Reagan's place in history as one of America's greatest presidents."
A Modern Defense of Liberty against Tyrants
Randall D. Dunning | Garland, TX United States | 11/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a good documentary for anyone who wants to understand the cold war era. Starting with the rise of the evil left wing twins Communism and Nazi Fascism this tells the story of the bloodiest century in human history through the eyes of a single man who dedicated his life to doing something about it. The footage is somewhat raw in places and the pictures of the horrors inflicted by Nazi, Bolshevik, and Maoist regimes will be too intense for young children. I lived through that period and think this the best and most concise presentation of the events of those years that I have seen. My wife and I saw it in the theater and were rapt for the entire length of the movie. This DVD is a cherished member of my documentary collection. Due to the obvious budget constraints I give it a production quality of about 3* and a content quality of 5*.
The music is orchestral and deeply moving, evoking both pathos and heroism at appropriate times in the presentation. There are no jarring techno-funk or rock-n-roll cuts for those who are scrupulous of such things.
The material is perfect for Middle School and High Schools students. More depth would be required for college but the 4 step process Regan and his men devised to fight the "Evil Empire" might make good undergraduate paper material for American or World History 101."
A Great Lesson in Leadership.

"This film really demonstrates how great leaders are those that have strong priciples and don't back down from them despite strong pressure to do so. Reagen is often portrayed as an unintelligent president who bumbled his way through 2 terms. This movie makes a great case that Reagen was a visoinary whose ideas and actions (we are only now seeing) had a tremendous impact on world history. His name will not be forgotten 1,000 years from now, in the same way that Charles Martel is still remembered."
I Dare You to Watch This

"In the Face of Evil is an excellent film that explains the little known facts of Ronald Reagan's life long fight against the great evil of the late Twentieth Century, communism. Despite some's view that Reagan accidentally brought down the USSR or that he just happened to be in Office when communism lost its grip on the world, In the Face of Evil exposes the faultiness in those theories. It also shows that Reagan had developed this ideas for defeating communism long before he ever reached the White House. His actions here not spur of the moment thoughts, they were well developed due to his extensive dealings with communism from his early days in Hollywood. It also shows the remarkable consistency with which Reagan viewed communism and the threat it posed. Reagan actions were not based on polls, they were founded on his unshakable view that communism was evil, it was a threat, and it needed to be ended, not tolerated. Despite whatever your views or beliefs, this is a film that you must see."
