Conspiracy theoryThis was a good movie that explores one of the many conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination of JFK. Read the books Rush to Judgement, and Six seconds in Dallas for starters..Score: 4/5

FantasticI saw this when it first came out. It was quickly pulled. Burt Lancaster and Will Geer are great. Worth buying and owning.Score: 5/5

All Conspiracy Theories Have Been Proven FalseDespite what many people may think happened Nov 22, 1963, the fact is the only person shooting at the President was Lee Harvey Oswald. Objective, nuetral investigators have proven: 1. The second bullet fired hit JFK in the back of the neck, came out the front and then hit Governor Connally. They have proven it with 3D graphics, enhanced copies of the Zapruder film, and with lasers shot from the window where Oswald commited the murder. 2. The correct configuration of the limosuine seats has been verified. Gov. Connally was in a jump seat in front of the President and to the left. He was also lower than the President. This contradicts the picutre shown in the movie "JFK" which showed him to far to the right. 3. Enhanced stills from a film taken the opposite direction from Zapruder clearly shows the fatal bullet that struck the President came from behind, not the grassy knoll. This movie distorts facts and leaves the viewer with the impression a conspiracy must have happened. There was never a conspiracy. I would not recommend this movie at all..Score: 1/5

A VERY GOOD MOVIEA well-scripted, well-acted movie. It tells an important part of the basic truth about the assassination conspiracy against JFK, including the motive for the crime. Well worth seeing, well worth owning. I'm going to buy it..Score: 5/5

I agree with JEFF0566The whole Lee Harvey Oswald perspective is a farce, The assassination was multifaceted. It cuts deep into government, and corporate greed and controls. There’s been a cloak of deception since 1964, and many witnesses on the location were silenced. Col. Fletcher L. Pouty Was one of many who gave credence to the collective efforts to undermine our government..Score: 5/5

Dull movie.Dull, very dull movie.Score: 1/5

The review give by aka: Superman FanYou are as ignorant as you appear...you and your "Oswald was the only shooter proclamation" Everyone in the world knows there was a conspiracy but You... go back to sleep now. Kennedy would have been a great President and was for a short time. Nuff said JSM.Score: 5/5

Die liberale Politik des US-Präsidenten John F. Kennedy beunruhigt eine Gruppe von Industriellen und Politikern. Sie planen die Ermordung des Präsidenten. Dafür heuern sie Scharfschützen an und wählen Lee Harvey Oswald als Sündenbock aus. - Das Kennedy-Attentat, lange bevor Oliver Stone sich der Thematik annahm.

Intriga y conspiraciones en una pelicula basada en una novela de Mark Lane, con guion de Dalton Trumbo, que especula sobre la autoria del asesinato del presidente Kennedy el 22 de Noviembre de 1963 en Dealey Plaza. La pelicula plantea la idea de que Lee Harvey Oswald no estuvo solo y que detras existio una compleja organizacion que, movida por intereses politicos, militares y economicos, conspiro para acabar con la vida del presidente.

Le 5 juin 1963, dans la riche demeure texane de Foster, une poignée de magnats du pétrole, soutenus par le sénateur extrémiste Ferguson, décident l'assassinat du président Kennedy. Pour connaître les mouvements de J.F.K., Foster a sollicité l'aide de Farrington, un ancien agent du FBI qui a gardé des contacts au gouvernement. Chargé de l'exécution du plan, Farrington entraîne deux équipes de trois tireurs d'élite et cherche un bouc émissaire qui sera désigné en temps utile comme l'assassin. Parmi vingt-quatre candidats possibles, les conjurés sélectionnent un ex-Marin, Lee Harvey Oswald, tandis que, dans les semaines qui précèdent, un sosie d'Oswald se fait remarquer à Dallas par son comportement excentrique. Tout est en place. Reste à attendre le moment favorable. Le 22 novembre, John Kennedy se rend à Dallas et tombe sous le feu de trois tireurs d'élite devant la façade du Texas Book Depository. Comme prévu, les soupçons se portent sur Oswald, mais celui-ci est arrêté et non abattu.

Kennedy elnök meggyilkolásának körülményei mind a mai napig tisztázatlanok, ezért az eset még mindig foglalkoztatja a közvéleményt. Megismerhetjük a gyilkosság lehetséges forgatókönyvét, amelyben aprólékosan kidolgozták, hogyan lehetne minél sürgősebben megszabadulni az elnöktől.

Film die de gebeurtenissen rond de moord op JFK belicht, in een andere versie als het als waarheid geaccepteerde Warren Report. Het laat zien hoe enkele machtige lieden de moord plannen en voorbereiden. Hiervoor trainen ze een schutter en zorgen dat Lee Harvey Oswald de zondebok wordt.
