Actor and comedian George Wilson delivers a surprising right-on impersonation of Ronald Reagan whenever the latter is quoted, which is frequently. It's a Reagan who sounds a little tired and subdued much of the time because, in fact, he was, beginning with the near-assassination he experienced early in his presidency. The rest of Wilson's narration is well done, comforting, and exact, even the many foreign names and phrases. Reeves offers us a generally positive portrait of President Reagan, a president who learned from his mistakes. Further, Reagan grasped the fact that words are often more effective than deeds, and he was a complete spoken wordsmith. He, with Mikhail Gorbachev, remade the world.
