On March 19, 2003, forces from the United States and a handful of allied nations invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. American military leaders expected the conflict to last no more than a few months, and President George W. Bush declared that major military operations were over less than two months later.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A tidy summary of the tragic mistakes made, and the brutal arrogance displayed, by the Bush administration in its prosecution of the Iraq war."
‑ , Globe and Mail
"No End in Sight makes one thing clear: Were it not so bloody, the war in Iraq would be destined to become a case study in the nation's business schools."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A persuasive argument that the inception of, and response to, the Iraq War perverted America's ideals and intellect. Its moderate temperament hides obvious roars: Remembering outrage is all that will keep this from again occurring unopposed."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"No End is Sight is the product of a calmly systematic desire for knowledge, and as such, does not offer solutions, only profound insight."
‑ Beverly Berning,
"Well-constructed and well-researched documentary which methodically lays out the groundwork for what went wrong in Iraq."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"This is a movie about the very officials who boasted 'I don't do quagmires' (then-defense secretary Rumsfeld), but who hadn't actually done the planning or simple reading of other people's plans that might have avoided that very fate."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Even dedicated news junkies will gain new understanding of a campaign with no end in sight."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A thorough, level-headed examination of the Bush administration's failure to properly prepare for, and execute, the war."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"By the time No End in Sight gets to a late chapter titled "Things Fall Apart," you'll believe that call could have been made a long time ago."
‑ Tricia Olszewski, Washington City Paper
"Watching the film, which is well-organized but utterly artless, one wonders who, exactly, it's trying to sway."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"A clear-eyed appraisal and condemnation of Bush administration war policies as seen through the eyes of people in a position to note the disastrous choices that left a country in chaos."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"There's no shortage of opinion, but what Ferguson is aiming for in this fascinating 102-minute dissection is a professional critique of foreign policy."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"It doesn't matter if you're a news junkie or clueless about current events, you need to see this movie."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
"a horror show guaranteed to make you mad"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Charles Ferguson's film may be the best, and the final word on the subject."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
