  • Charlie Wilson's War is simply fantastic. It's funny and incredibly well written. But the real disturbing elements emerge in the films final ten minutes, when you realize exactly how dangerous America's meddling into world affairs has become.

  • "Charlie Wilson's War" is said to be based on fact, and I have no reason to doubt that. It stars Tom Hanks as Rep. Charles Wilson, a swinging, hard-drinking, coke-using liberal Democrat from Texas who more or less single-handedly defeated the Russians in Afghanistan.

  • The title refers to Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson, and his efforts in funding the US aid to the mujahedeen in Afghanistan during the 1980's. The book is part biography of Democrat Charlie Wilson, part history of the Afghan war effort, and part policy review of the roles played by various US agencies during the 1980's involvement in Afghanistan.

  • “Charlie Wilson’s War” may be more of a hoot than any picture dealing with the bloody, protracted fight between the Soviet Army and the Afghan mujahedeen has any right to be.

  • Charlie Wilson's War is one of the best non Musician Bio-pics in a long while as well as being that rare thing a film that entertains, amuses as well as informs all in equal measure.

  • Summary: Charlie Wilson's War is the true story of how a playboy congressman, a renegade CIA agent, and a beautiful Houston socialite joined forces to lead the largest and most successful covert operation in history.

  • 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.

  • Gust winds up chief of South Asia Operations, a group responsible for, among other things, Afghanistan, and soon finds himself in Charlie Wilson's office hammering out a strategy to put the hurt on the Soviets.
