Someday there will be an engrossing cinematic portrait of Reagan that explores the man's faults and merits with equal measure. Killing Reagan is not that film.
It's an adequate made-for-television movie and the use of actual footage from the months covered by the film make it more realistic.
Tim Matheson captures the essence of the Reagan persona - a born performer whose public and private selves were so in sync, perhaps even happily, that they became indistinguishable.
Director Rod Lurie does a masterful job of serving the story and the emotions without sentimentality.
Director Rod Lurie plays it down the middle, though he has a tough time replicating Washington in Atlanta, where the whole thing was shot.
The best moments are the quiet little conversations between Ron and Nancy. Matheson and Nixon are convincing as a close couple united by true love as well as common goals and ambitions.
Killing Reagan is pretty much the expected, rote bio movie of the assassination attempt on President Reagan by John Hinckley Jr.
Killing Reagan, which airs on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, Oct. 16, feels rushed and incomplete, compressing this historic episode into a flat pancake of pointlessness.
