Critic Reviews for Reagan: In the Face of Evil
The Gipper was always more entertaining and more persuasive than any of the other talking heads on display here
Makes good use of historical footage to show how a B-list Hollywood actor made the unlikely ascension to commander-in-chief.
The film is bereft not only of style, but reasoned opinions and even, occasionally, verifiable facts.
This is the sort of film that will make its target audience, presumably religious, right-wing Christians, heartened and possibly misty-eyed. But it's likely to provoke hooting and hollering in less reverent circles.
Were the film's tone not so hysterical it might be provocative; as it is, insights and insults are inextricably intertwined.
In the Face of War repeats the same points over and over in a manner that's ironically very much like Soviet propaganda.
Ronald Reagan's praises are sung in an operatic documentary that rises to new heights, slipping the surly bonds of hagiography.
Overreaching in many of its laudatory appraisals, the film is mostly GOP-boosting rhetoric in the guise of a dull History Channel special.
