A classic film that is well done from beginning to end. A cliche of a review, but there is no need to get into specifics when every part of the movie, for me, provided all the elements of a great movie that is even worth a second look.
One specific note: the incorporation of real footage from the 70's was done flawlessly. The attention to detail from the wardrobe, h/m/u, set design team, IT, etc, was perfect.
There's drama, excitement, humor when you least expect it (which makes for the best laughs, often in this movie) action scenes, tense moments, doses of 'actuality' - I refuse to call the perfect portrayal of history as a dose of 'reality' as TV has destroy this term - in addition to scene by scene replications of historical events.
DO NOT LEAVE UNTIL THE CREDITS ROLL.
