  • Ginnifer Goodwin as Jackie and Michelle Trachtenberg as Oswald's wife acquit themselves well in this solidly watchable, quickly forgettable dramatic snapshot of indelible history.

  • You won't come away from it with any new answers, but it's a useful reminder of why the drama of that day has transfixed Americans for half a century.

    November 12, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The dialogue is painfully clumsy, and the pacing is pure Wikipedia.

  • Killing Kennedy is subversive in a great way. The more the pathology of Oswald is developed...the more it resembles what propels many conspiracy theorists.

  • Killing Kennedy easily could have been twice its length, the better to add both nuance and context. Instead it's a watchable film with many missing parts, a broadly drawn Classics Illustrated version of what happened and why.

  • There's nothing terribly wrong with Killing Kennedy. We just don't need the splashes of Hollywood in a story we already know way too well.

Audience Reviews for Killing Kennedy

  • Aug 12, 2014
    Killing Kennedy is not a great drama, but for what it is, it's a pretty good one. The cast is quite impressive, and to be honest, I kind of dislike Rob Lowe. And never been a fan of his work, but here, he really impressed me. I thought he was very good as JFK and for what it is; it's a performance that can prove that the man can act. The film is a bit short, but that's alright because sometimes adding too much material presented on-screen can make the viewer lose interest. However that is not the case with Killing Kennedy. Keeping it short and sweet, this is a film that dives quickly into a thoroughly enthralling story and with some wonderful performances, more than makes up for the film's flaws. This film is quite good and it definitely deserves to be seen, even by skeptics of Lowe or Bill O'Reilly, (who is notorious for his views on his show and who wrote the book that inspired this film) will probably enjoy the film. This is a highly entertaining picture that manages to work quite well considering its limitations, and for what it is, it's a fine little film that can get viewers interested in the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I think that the film can get people interested in the subject here, and the film manages to be a film that should not be passed up. This is a terrific film that deserves to be seen. Sure, it's not perfect, but it's quite good at handling its subject matter.
