Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The bulk of the material is confusing at best and laughable at worst."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Clear and concise, with insightful, impassioned interviewees and well-chosen epithets from statesmen past and present, it cogently analyzes looming catastrophes, with wistful stabs at possible solutions."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"This latest in a long line of Occupy Wall Street-minded documentaries suffers from its strident tone and scattershot approach."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"When Woodrow Wilson is a villain in your movie, viewer beware!"
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"Documentaries don't get more one-sided than "American Empire: An Act of Collective Madness," but what a persuasive side it is."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"A jumbled nonfiction jeremiad of raw-nerve feeling built around ominous and vague proclamations of 'where we're going' as a country, American Empire is like a vitamin B-boosted espresso shot for left-leaning paranoiacs."
‑ Brent Simon,
