| Slow and disappointing
Although I consider Obama the best President in my lifetime, I consider this film the worst film made about a President who lived during my lifetime. I had to write this review because when I saw the low IMDb rating I figured it was due to typical site trollers that never even saw the film. But the truth is that this is not a very good film.

The acting is all solid, but the script is trite and boring. I don't think it revealed a bit about Obama that most people did not already know.

When tackling the issues of race that have to be tackled in a biography of a young Obama, it would be very easy to come off as clichéd. And unfortunately that is the way it comes off. If you feel like watching a film about recent Presidents there are several films about Nixon and JFK and Stone's Bush bio that are certainly worth watching. "Secret Honor" is a gem you should seek out in particular. But you can skip this one.
