Charlie Wilson’s War

I went to see Charlie Wilson’s War yesterday with my wife Denise. I thought it was a pretty good flick.  Tom Hanks was pretty good in the leading war.  I know it was dramatized but I hope it starts to raise awareness in the world about how we get into some of these political and war messes.  I was saddened that they just glossed over the Saudi involvement in that war.  That was back when the bin Laden family was an ally of ours.  🙁

Anyway, enough about the politic side of the movie.  Acting was good and made a decent story about a non-action based historical event.  I give it 3 & 1/2 stars.
