Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though the outcome is a foregone conclusion, this movie still delivers a thrilling ride.
Fresh: Thirteen Days is a good movie about a profound moment in world history.
Fresh: I call the movie a thriller, even though the outcome is known, because it plays like one.
Rotten: It just feels exaggerated, really, to the point of distortion.
This movie is great; I wish a little more time would have been taken to get a more accurate account, but the acting was superb. Greenwood did a really nice job as Jack, and I have no idea why Costnor was even in it (Sorenson was NOT a key figure in the CMC) but the true star here is Culp. Even after all these years I'm still disappointed that he didn't get an Oscar nod. Since he is a more mature man now, I'd really like to see him tackle a role playing Jack for more than a TV show. Hope that happens!
Real good movie
Great Movie. Demonstrates that facts can be more exciting than fiction.
