Critic Reviews for Killing Reagan

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

October 17, 2016 | Full Review…

It's an adequate made-for-television movie and the use of actual footage from the months covered by the film make it more realistic.

The best moments are the quiet little conversations between Ron and Nancy. Matheson and Nixon are convincing as a close couple united by true love as well as common goals and ambitions.
