Thirteen Days Reviews
Kevin Costner stars in this film during a lull in his career. After his early nineties peek with movies such as Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves and The Bodygaurd his career reached a peak then it all crashed after the disaster of Waterworld in 1994.
This film has acts of fact perhaps acts of fiction. Either way it could be used as a modern history lesson in comprehensive schools with poor history corriculums.
For a film that didn't reach the highs of his early nineties efforts. Costner should be proud of his performance and I enjoyed the significance of the subject matter.
Costner would go on to reprise his JFK era role in the film JFK in 1991.

What surprised me the most was how a political film had that much production design and the superb cinematography makes Thirteen Days a fine watch. The film is well directed and acted and the flight scenes are minor battle scenes are all great and it reminded me a lot about Top Gun.
Fazit: Für diese kleine Geschichtsstunde ist die Story gut besetzt. Die Spannung verliert sich aber zwischen den Szenen!
