| With an enjoyable satirical undertone.
With an enjoyable satirical undertone.

I'm surprised how few comments have been given so far.

Well entertaining for sure. And being "just" a TV movie, above average, no question. Positively to point out is the satirical undertone throughout the movie, what concerns the quite questionable character of the Kennedy clan. A lot of less than beneficial facts have emerged about the real background of JFK and his brother since their tragic death. Still surprising, how the iconic, unquestioned figure of JFK was able to survive till this day. But the movie puts also light on Hoovers debatable "qualities", especially in regards of his "informal" ties to the mafia. The use of real archive footage adds also to this movie. Well done.
