All This and World War II is a fascinating but singularly pointless "musical documentary". Virtually all the footage has been culled from the vaults of Fox Movietone News, and edited in a linear manner in order to visually trace the history of World War II. Complementing this priceless newsreel film is a relentless musical score, comprised of Beatles tunes (though not sung by the Fab Four). Evidently all this effort was expended to make some sort of antiwar statement. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nostalgia often incurs when an item is kept from public consumption, and it is likely all wistful feelings for this film would disappear if it ever becomes available for mass consumption."
‑ Edward Havens, FilmJerk.com
"The most brilliantly reckless film I've ever seen. A triumph of audacity and bad taste."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"Like seeing the world's biggest school project unfolding before your eyes"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
