Charlie Wilson's War 2007


description written by member Zara:

Based on George Crile's book about the CIA's largest and most successful covert CIA operation, the arming of the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan. The covert ops were engineered by Charlie Wilson (Hanks), a charismatic, wheeler-dealer, liberal Texas congressman who teamed with a rogue CIA operative (Hoffman). The two manipulated Congress, the CIA and a host of foreign governments in order to assist the Afghan rebels in their fight against the Soviets in the 1980s. Many of the men armed by the CIA went on to become the Taliban's enforcers and Osama bin Laden's protectors.

Charlie Wilson's War Movie Review by Zara (8/27/2008)

A deeply involving and interesting movie about the covert war between Afghanistan and the Russians during a time when the "cold war" still existed. For those who might not have been alive at the time (the movie's period starts in 1980 and runs through 1993), or even for those like me who were young and just annoyed at...

Charlie Wilson's War Movie Review by Master (2/4/2008)

finally we got to see an adult movie, done by adults for adults. The movie moves fast but not too fast.
the story line and the acting is superb. Nothing silly but not overly serious so that one is bored to death.
Hoffman is one of today's best actors, he is enormously convincing and plays the part perfect. He made me feel...

Charlie Wilson's War Movie Review by Andy (1/16/2008)

Charlie Wilson's War is a good movie. Tom Hanks hasn't made very many bad movies in his career, and even the bad ones weren't bad because of him. Though, this should've been better. You have three of the best actors of our time in Hanks, Roberts and Hoffman along with a director that made The Graduate, but I felt after...

Charlie Wilson's War Movie Review by Jarrod (12/22/2007)

The amazing story of Charlie Wilson was captured in a bestselling book by George Crile, and has now been adapted by Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing. Wilson is not a well-known historical figure, but played a crucial role in ending the Cold War, perhaps doing more even than Reagan, who is often credited, sometimes...

Charlie Wilson's War Movie Review by Movie Addict (12/22/2007)

I quit watching "The West Wing" after Aaron Sorkin quit writing and producing. It just wasn't the same. Imagine my thrill at seeing a film that he wrote again. It has been a long time - The American President, A Few Good Men. His script was a beautiful blend of humor and tragedy. He made a compelling story believable, and...
