Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
Henry King's treatment of the life of Woodrow Wilson is stolid and respectful; it never dares the intimacy that Ford brought to bear on Lincoln, and so it never achieves Ford's mythic heights.
Through it all stalks a potent personality in Alexander Knox, a newborn star, supported by a flawless cast.
This is an odd sort of biopic, the kind they don't make anymore.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Better than average biopic.
| Original Score: 3/5
Zanuck's biopic of President Woodraw Wilson is a typically middlebrow film, made for American audiences during WWII with more concern for patriotism than history or entertainment.
| Original Score: C+
Much of the film's exceptional quality is due to the performance of Alexander Knox in the title role.
| Original Score: 4/5
The result's handsome, worthy and solemn.
A lavish biography of Woodrow Wilson.
