    If take this picture at it's title it is not a 100% true biography of W. but a factual portrayal of the know background and a rational supisition of what was behnd it. Josh Brolin was a good as they get on the potrayal of a living character and the supporting player just made it all that more real. Worth watching. It makes you think!!

    An all-star cast supported the telling of the unvarnished story of our 43rd President bringing to light both his weaknesses and his strengths. In many respects the film is eye-opening and an enjoyable view.

    Love him or hate him, this is a superbly acted and directed film of G.W. Bush. Josh Brolin is spot on as Bush!
