critics consensus

LBJ loses sight of its complicated subject, ignoring the more intriguing aspects of his personality and career in favor of a frustratingly ordinary biopic treatment. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for LBJ

  • Sep 22, 2018
    From Rob Reiner comes the incredibly compelling political thriller LBJ. The story follows Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson in the mist of the Kennedy assassination as he's swept into the presidency and has to decide how to proceed with Kennedy's social agenda and what kind of president he wants to be. Starring Woody Harrelson, Jeffrey Donovan, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the film has an impressive cast that delivers some really good performances. And, the script is especially well-written and uses flashbacks to cover Johnson's political career and history with the Kennedys. However, it kind of skirts around the Vietnam War, focusing instead on Johnson as the workhorse who turned Kennedy's dream into a reality with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. There's a rose-colored tint to LBJ, but it's still a fascinating look at the man who shepherded the country through an extraordinary crisis.
