Wow, did this movie bring back some old memories. When it happened I was attending UPS in Tacoma and had been to Cheney Stadium in Sept of 63 to listen to Kennedy speak. Then in November he was killed by Oswald. Today there are still…

what a farce. lies, lies, lies. to call this 'fake news' is merely to inflate its value. YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH! So injest this shit, instead. why do people come up to me and drop Hanks' name? Because he grew up in El Cerrito? …

I think the depiction of what transpired at Parkland Memorial Hospital was shown but only superficially. From what I previously read of that day, I anticipated seeing more hysteria and disbelief from the crowds, which wasn't shown at all;…

A bunch of very good actors...with their talents totally wasted on this film. Boring, uninspired... Great potential with the cast, but, fell way short....... Don't bother with this one !!

Interesting audio/video to talk about. I could say that as a piece of film-making it is very well done. And to keep an eye on Peter Landesman’s other work. While all that is true, here in an audio/video reality ‘making’ is not what it…

Parkland is a historical drama that will resurrect memories of the awful weekend of 22 November 1963 for those who were alive then. It was just after lunch. I was in fifth grade. We were having an English lesson. Suddenly the principal…

Good movie. The chaos and disbelief of the events is well shown. Robert Oswald's confusion by his brother's actions and his stoic helpfulness to his mother (who seems crazy to me) and the wife and children left behind is to be admired.…

Misleading but less so than most coverup productions. Assumes lone-Oswald theory. In commentary, director ridicules conspiracy "nonsense" and "mythology". Wallows in maudlin irrelevancies, skips decisive facts. Gives Oswald…

This garbage is not a fictional documentary, simply fiction. Instead of taking apart this crapfest, as other commenters have already done so competently, let's examine what the so-called news reporters and so-called journalists couldn't…

This film is best appreciated by those who are already familiar with the events of that day. If you are not, I can see how it might seem chaotic and confusing. When you think about it, that is how it must have seemed to those living out…

Some good moments, but overall confusing and not very entertaining or illuminating.

Parkland is a well made film that reveals various truths surrounding the tragic but obscured reality regarding the assassination of JFK. The actors performances are heartfelt and credible. I think that this is an important film for the…

Another movie about the Kennedy Assassination except focused on the chaos immediately post the kill shot and the lives of a shop owner who captured the event with a handheld Bell and Howell movie camera, those Secret Service and FBI agents…

An excellent remake of the events that occurred in Dallas. Great actors, great acting, a pleasure to watch! Definitely made me want to learn more about JFK the events that occurred that day.

I enjoyed the film though I don't believe that Oswald was the lone gunman. I did enjoy seeing it from a different perspective such as the doctors and the nurses.

Underwhelming; ordinary; forgettable. It felt like a made for TV movie.

This movie was interesting, but just okay. I did like the fact that it focused on people that history has sort of forgotten about - like Oswald's brother. The updates at the end of the film were good.

a very far from the truth depiction of the facts. nice movie, good acting, but it's just a movie, not even close to the real facts. please dont mistake with a documentary!

Pretty mediocre drama that many will mistake for being a documentary. Some people will probably think that all the dialog in the screenplay is historically accurate without thinking that it couldn't possibly be. Considering that it's the…

I was shaken by this movie right from the start. I learned about characters that were there and more closely effected by this tragedy. it was well acted by the cast. I learned things about the event and people that I did not know. it was…
