It's not that Johnson isn't a compelling dramatic figure, but [Rob] Reiner's film is too broad and simplistic to capture why that is.

Reiner has been around the block enough times to relish everything in Johnson that's rudely incorrect.

"LBJ" is a frustratingly underdeveloped vehicle for Mr. Harrelson's talents as well as an unfortunate missed opportunity.

Strictly conventional, even down to the oft-used marching drums in the background, but it's solidly entertaining nonetheless...

While providing some enlightening insight into the 36th President, LBJ never truly engrosses.

An attentively presented but oddly unrewarding viewing experience despite a persuasive Woody Harrelson lead performance as Lyndon Baines Johnson.

So LBJ is very much a flawed movie, in the ways that almost all "important man" biopics tend to be.

This is definitely the wrong Commander In Chief to portray as an overgrown grumpy toddler, but that's how Joey Hartstone's simplistic script often characterizes him.
