Charlie Wilson’s War Movie Review

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

Stax over at IGN reviews Charlie Wison’s War starring academy award winners, Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.

Charlie Wilson’s War — directed by Mike Nichols from George Crile’s non-fiction bestseller — recounts America’s first major (albeit covert) intervention in Afghanistan, which may have beget its current war there. One’s appreciation of the film is not dependent on whether you believe that the historical events depicted in Charlie Wilson’s War may have unintentionally helped create or at least empower America’s current enemies there. This film is ultimately about what happened then, not what’s happening now. Charlie Wilson’s War is a hilarious, but ultimately bittersweet story about how one man can truly make a difference.

In the early 1980s, rakish Texas congressman Charlie Wilson (Tom Hanks) was a politician of little to no importance in the grand scheme of things. Better known for his affability, womanizing, drinking and overall unabashedly wanton ways, good time Charlie got religion, if you will, while lounging naked in a Vegas hot tub with strippers and cokehead Hollywood types. That’s when Charlie sees a CBS news report of Dan Rather interviewing members of the Afghan mujahideen, a Muslim force that had been fighting vainly against the Soviet army since its 1979 invasion. (Ironically, Charlie Wilson’s War had initially been set to open Dec. 25, which marks the 28th anniversary of the Soviets’ invasion of Afghanistan.)
