‘Killing Kennedy,’ a flimsy historical walkthrough

Ask not what “Killing Kennedy” can do for you, because the answer is probably not much.

Like “Killing Lincoln” from earlier this year, this studious but tedious National Geographic Channel film is executive-produced by Ridley Scott and adapted from a Bill O’Reilly-Martin Dugard bestseller of the same name. (It is also but one snowball in the avalanche of JFK-related programming surrounding the 50th anniversary of his assassination. See accompanying list.)
