Why does this excellent movie have a user rating of slightly above 5. It's because 34% of the users gave it a rating of 1. How could this happen? it's because this movie examines the 60 Minutes report in 2004 on President George W. Bush's National Guard Service. I suspect that a majority of the raters that gave the movie a rating of 1 never actually saw the movie. Make no mistake, this is an excellent movie. I sincerely hope you will see it regardless of your political persuasion. Robert Redford does a very good job portraying Dan Rather, his best performance in years. The supporting cast is universally good. But those who see this movie will see a performance by Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes that is worthy of an Oscar nomination. The movie is beautifully filmed and works hard to keep the viewer involved. It is two hours long, but well worth the time. Go see this movie.
