Critic Reviews for Killing Reagan

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

  • 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.
