The People's Review of Thirteen Days
score = None
I have never seen a more poorly directed movie when it comes to the
technical side of this movie. Everytime I was just about to get into
the movie, a boom mic would come down to nearly hit the actor on the head.
It was horrible! I truly thought that it was a mistake and maybe just the
theater I was in... I hope. The story was still good and despite the
bad camera angles (seeing the top of the set in the White House).
See it but only if you can ignore the boom mics.
score = 90
My husband and I plus my 28 year old daughter and her husband all enjoyed
the film. I will rent it when it comes on video to watch again!
Acting was excellant from beginning to end. My one critical comment
(I am from one of the New England states) would be of Kevin Costner HEAVY
Boston accent. I found it a little extreme and funny in the opening
score = 100
This was one of the best movies I have seen all year. So many people
have forgotten that our history does not end in 1945 that this movie has
to be worth seeing just for the glimpse into history. It was
riveting and brought into focus the reasons our parents were so frightened
at the time.
score = 100
Excellent movie... one of the best this year. The acting is top-notch, and
the story keeps you enthralled even though you know how the Cuban Missle
Crisis turned out. This movie tends to draw more adult audiences, but
would be excellent for teens as well.
score = 80
Exciting movie, not sure Kenny O'donnel had that muchto do with the
crises. Back ground music was used too much, LeMay was played the
way he really was, ignorant.
