Movie Reviews

Everyone here is a stereotype
Bradley F. Smith | Miami Beach, FL | 02/27/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This reminds me of one of those big all-star cast disaster flicks from the 70s. Plenty of big stars signed on. The script is the problem here. It turns everyone into a cliche and stereotype: the drugged out LSD-addled 60s hippy; the bride-to-be getting married to spare a kid from the Vietnam draft; the alcoholic aging lounge singer; the Latino versus black conflicts on the hotel kitchen staff. And what are Anthony Hopkins and Harry Belafonte, besides two old men hanging out in the lobby of the now-demolished Ambassador Hotel? This fictionalizes the lives of all these players on the day and night leading up to the RFK assassination, interspersed with real footage of RFK campaigning etc. I didn't buy it. It's a little boring."
Bobby (Full Screen Edition)

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's early June in 1968, and the California presidential primary elections are occupying the minds of many in the Golden State, with Robert F. Kennedy in a close race against Eugene McCarthy and Hubert Humphrey. The Kennedy campaign staff has set up camp at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, while the staff and guests become observers as the brother of fallen president John F. Kennedy sets out to pick up where his sibling left off. Twenty-two people become unwitting participants in a tragic and defining moment of the 1960s. This movie did an excellent job of immersing the viewer into that era of time. Actually seeing the footage of Bobby Kennedy intertwined into the story and hearing his speeches was a powerful tool for the overall theme of the movie. The subplots within this movie were done wonderfully and the cast successfully became a part of this movie in the 60's era. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Fine acting done by all.
