I'm really conflicted about this movie, specifically what rating to give it. On one hand, it's an interesting movie, and I applaud Stone for having the balls to release it while Bush was still in office. On the other hand, there are a lot of issues going on. For one thing, maybe ...
Josh Brolin stars as George W. Bush in this Oliver Stone biopic that traces the head of state's rise to power from a privileged alcoholic to a born-again Christian whose belief in religious destiny he... read more

Well-acted and well-shot, but doesn't provide an answer to the question everyone was asking: why make a biopic about a president you hate? It's almost like Stone was just trying to be the first to put this history on film, writing Bush-isms from press conferences into implausible...

Very interesting and insightful movie which flips back from W's youthful days to his days in the White House, its amusing in places and lets you in on all sorts of area's of W's life. Wether its all true is another matter, from his on off relationship with his father to his booze...

It's very rare that I hear poor feedback with regards to a film by director Oliver Stone. Several months ago, I got tired of hearing all this, so I went and watched his 1991 political drama JFK, which is now one of my favorite films. After spending what seemed like forever tryi...

A wonderful biographical piece. Whether you hate or love Bush,he has a lot of impact in the world we live in today. The move give us some interesting insight to the Bush's precidency and how he reach it. Josh Brolin is brilliant to play Bush Jr. The story is delivered to the audi...

For years, I've always took Oliver Stone's films to be mediocre, his last good film was Natural Born Killers. After that, his career was a constant string of mediocre films. But W. is a better film than what his recent films have been. This is one of Oliver Stone better films in ...

Even I do not feel this movie was very accurate and I in no way support George W. Bush. This movie should be watched the same way you rely on Wikipedia for information - check other sources! A big disappointment from Oliver Stone trying to be political more so than tell a story...

Just as I'm not sure what to think about the subject matter, I'm just as conflicted about this film, which is riviting in places (especially the scenes concerning policy and the Iraq mess), but mundane and pedestrian in others.
Stone tries to be evenhanded here, the net result...

I was as disappointed with W. as I was in 2004 with the US for reelecting Bush. W. doesn't come across as a movie as a bunch of vignettes. I'm no fan of George W. Bush but all that aside, but I know a dull, lifeless and uninspiring movie when I see it. Oliver Stone cements his re...

Nothing terribly memorable in this besides Josh Brolin's total commitment to his role of Bush. He had him down to the way he walks, which was truly amazing to see. The rest of the movie is enjoyable, but falls under the same spell of most Oliver Stone movies. What is so important...
