    Sadly, what Parkland becomes is a crying shame. show more

    The chief virtues of Parkland are journalistic in the best sense. show more

    The events of those days would have been better covered in greater depth in a miniseries, rather than a 90-minute movie. show more

    Perhaps it’s inevitable that the movie works best not while we’re watching fictional recreations, but when we see real footage or hear actual broadcasts. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    Engrossing, quietly revelatory, and often profoundly moving as it retells a story we only thought we knew. show more

    Awkward, incoherent and plodding. show more

    Parkland mines some interesting scenes, if not in an entirely coherent fashion, resolving as more of an interesting concept than a fully rendered and effective film. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    A sobering, documentary-style film commemorating eyewitness accounts of what happened in the aftermath of the tragedy, some of them fresh as a new wound, all of them painful but vital to a deeper understanding of one of the darkest chapters in American history. show more

    Parkland is a fascinating insider’s view of those fateful two days in November of 1963, when a president was murdered, his assassin was gunned down in custody and generations of conspiracies were born. show more

    It shouldn’t necessarily be the case that a film focusing on the collateral details of the shooting, after the fact, would feel dull and uninvolving, but this writing/directing debut by journalist Peter Landesman does, with the exception of a few particularly interesting revelations. show more

    Why isn\'t Parkland playing in Columbia, MD? Very disappointing.

    Why isn\'t Parkland playing on the east coast near Maryland? Also, I have read most of the comments. You people need to read our history before you call this movie boring. Read the books. Watch the documentries. Listen to the evidence. I\'m sure most of you were not around when this happened. Sure you don\'t care. Look into what our government is doing now.

    Saw Parkland and liked it very much. Fast moving and certainly found it very interesting from the points of view shone, was deeply moved by the characters portrayed. Good acting. Will see it again in the theater. Hope people will make the effort to see this one.
