RUDY: THE RUDY GIULIANI STORY (Television Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Rudy: the Rudy Giuliani Story
shows the determination and dedication of Rudy Giuliani to his position as Mayor of New York City and his work as a lawyer. The casting of Actor James Woods seems awkward as the resemblance to Giuliani both in looks and body language are not replicated well. The study of Giuliani in this movie is shallow and lacks full coverage. However, the life of Rudy Giuliani as of 2020 is still evolving. Without the final chapter the story in not complete. The movie is worth a watch, but be aware that this documentary does not provide an in-depth coverage of its subject matter.
