    I was disappointed with the way the story was told, there was a lack of character building and I didn’t feel engaged. I’m sure this is a great story of our history but the movie didn’t have heart. I’m not sure if this is what the movie makers were trying to portray but I walked away thinking Charlie Wilson won the Cold War almost single-handedly... <a href="https://www.clearplay.com/MovieDash.aspx?id=2888" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
