Critic Reviews for LBJ
Woody Harrelson in the title role has enough spice to keep the viewer alert and attentive.
The best thing the director has going for him is his star, Woody Harrelson.
It's as workmanlike as Johnson was as a politician; but as a primer on one of history's less flashy leaders, it's a worthwhile watch - mostly for fellow Texan Woody Harrelson's committed performance behind those prosthetic ears.
Captures a tumultuous political era and one of its most profanely colorful leaders with a good deal of insight and emotional torque.
Harrelson gives it all he has as the gruff, emotionally needy and politically savvy successor to the matinee-idol commander-in-chief, John F. Kennedy.
