New York Daily News
By Joe Neumaier
A measured and thoughtful meditation on a leader who, this terrific movie believes, inadvertently made the world as roiling as his soul.
San Francisco Chronicle
By Mick LaSalle
In the end, W. makes up in immediacy what it lacks in objectivity.
By Claudia Puig
The performances are good (some scarily realistic), and the movie is enjoyable to watch. But as a probing analysis of the 43rd president, it...
By Ty Burr
When it works, W. can take your breath away. When it doesn't, you can feel Stone still working out his feelings toward the man.
By Peter Travers
Whatever you think of Dubya, he has balls. The movie doesn't.
By Bob Mondello
A surprisingly unsurprising film.
By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The intrepid one is the outstanding Josh Brolin, who does such a phenomenal job in the title role that he carries every scene he's in to a...
The Hollywood Reporter
By Kirk Honeycutt
It's a gutsy movie but not necessarily a good one. Its greatest strength is that it wants to talk about what's on our minds right now and...
By Carrie Rickey
Unlike the filmmaker's previous stabs at presidential biopic-ing and conspiracy theorizing - "JFK" and "Nixon" - this one doesn't have the...
Wall Street Journal
By Joe Morgenstern
In spite of Josh Brolin's heroic efforts, W. is a skin-deep biopic that revels in its antic shallowness.

don't believe the lie, and remember this

DO NOT BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT SHILLS ON THIS SITE!!!!
Jist finished seeing the movie and it was definitely better than i expected and judging by the audience reaction in the theatre, i'm not the only one who enjoyed it. There was applause at the end of...
SHAME ON OLIVER!
How dare Oliver Stone depict George W. Bush as a gullible, naive and simplistic President. Stone depicted Bush as a Born Again Christian who is lead by his beliefs. When in fact everyone knows Bush...
They don't call him Stone for nothing.
I have to laugh at some of these reviews. Anyone who takes a Stone movie serious is an idiot. This is a typical Oliver Stone movie..short on facts and long on BS. This guy rewrites history in ALL his...
Saw a pre-screen
A W F U L use of time and terrible use of film. Don't waste your money on this insanity....
My President Right or Wrong
It's interesting how quickly other Republicans attacked the reviewer who said he was a conservative Christian Republican but had found the movie "pretty factual". Apparently, we're supposed to...
This movie seems like one that somebody should go to just for kicks. It doesnt really make an empression on me....
