Too fraudulent to work as fact; too melodramatic to work as fiction.

Sad to say, Oliver Stone's three hours of bombast did little to raise the level of discussion.

If conspiracy theories are your cup of tea -- or if you just like a good yarn -- JFK may satisfy.
January 1, 2000
As scenery-chewing entertainment, JFK would appear to be an interesting failure.
January 9, 2002
One doesn't have to buy the Warren Commission's version of the nightmare in Dallas to find Stone's hysterical conspiracy theory monumentally unconvincing.
May 20, 2003
The film's insurmountable problem is the vast amount of material it fails to make coherent sense of.

While Stone has certainly stirred up the waters, with good conscience and, in JFK's own parlance, "with vigah," most people are likely to regard JFK as BS.

July 5, 2003
The conspiracy theory of the murder of JFK is given front stage by Stone. Intriguing and thought provoking piece.

November 7, 2002
The film's argument is both engaging and ridiculous -- and [it] is also one of the best shot and edited films in recent memory.

This is a film that will change some minds and provoke argument. 73% of Americans believe there was a conspiracy and that percentage is likely to go up with this film.
