Critic Reviews for Reagan: In the Face of Evil

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

  • Makes good use of historical footage to show how a B-list Hollywood actor made the unlikely ascension to commander-in-chief.

  • The film is bereft not only of style, but reasoned opinions and even, occasionally, verifiable facts.

  • This is the sort of film that will make its target audience, presumably religious, right-wing Christians, heartened and possibly misty-eyed. But it's likely to provoke hooting and hollering in less reverent circles.

  • In the Face of War repeats the same points over and over in a manner that's ironically very much like Soviet propaganda.

    Oct 29, 2004 | Rating: 1/4
  • Ronald Reagan's praises are sung in an operatic documentary that rises to new heights, slipping the surly bonds of hagiography.

    Oct 28, 2004 | Rating: 2/5
  • Overreaching in many of its laudatory appraisals, the film is mostly GOP-boosting rhetoric in the guise of a dull History Channel special.
