Whatever you think of Dubya, he has balls. The movie doesn't. show more
In spite of Josh Brolin's heroic efforts, W. is a skin-deep biopic that revels in its antic shallowness. show more
Unlike the filmmaker's previous stabs at presidential biopic-ing and conspiracy theorizing - "JFK" and "Nixon" - this one doesn't have the luxury of historical perspective. show more
If you are considering seeing this movie it's simple.... if you are an Obama fan and/or Bush hater, you'll think it's great. If you are not, you'll find it to be a complete mockery of President George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice, and more subtlely but still there, born again Christians. It portrays President Bush and Condoleezza Rice complete idiots. Amazing.
I kept waiting for the movie to start. About 90 minutes into it, it finally did... but I agree with the Onion's review which stated that instead of going in to paint Bush's life with strokes, even broad ones, Stone gave us a paint roller of a portrayal. I didn't find it as worthy as Stone's other films.
