Superb production with memorable Sinise performance in title role.

Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers

An excellent biopic anchored by a marvelous job by Sinise.

October 2, 2003
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Its Cliffs Notes approach to the source biography gets a big boost from star Gary Sinise.

Audience Reviews for Truman

Truman succeeds at being a comprehensive, well acted, informative, and generally well written biopic. Undoubtedly the portrayal of Truman was too charitable, but the level of humanity that Gary Sinise was able to inject really carried the film throughout. I would have liked to see the more aggressive side of Truman, and some of his internal political battles with his own party, but for its running time, Truman manages to cover a lot of ground, and does so in a largely effective way.
