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.
