Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Packs a powerful punch if you're ready for a lesson in foreign policy."
‑ Charles Ealy, Dallas Morning News
"Uncovered: The War on Iraq is like a trial lawyer's summation during a lengthy case in which allegations are familiar but their full context is not."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"This is chilling stuff, worthy of the most cunning of fictional thrillers but all too horrifyingly real..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Needs to be seen."
‑ Aaron Sagers, Orlando Weekly
"This feature actually is better suited as an episode of PBS' Frontline than as a theatrical release."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Made up of almost nothing but talking heads, and no matter how cogent their statements, it makes for a pretty static movie that's unlikely to engage anyone opposed to its point of view."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Any person voting in this year's presidential election owes it to America's future to see this film."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Basically preaching to the choir, of course. But that doesn't mean that the sermon isn't one that needs to be heard."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Condoleeza Rice says: "Saddam Hussein cavorts with terrorists.""
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"Unrolls like an American tragedy...If you thought Fahrenheit 9/11 burned the Bush administration, Uncovered pours gasoline on the flames."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"Despite its slant, the movie offers some illuminating details, and director Robert Greenwald constructs a solid argument that the Iraq war was driven more by expedient politics than facts."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"Uncovered has no interest in explaining the Bush administration's case for war for them: This is the prosecution's argument, and it is extremely well-made."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"You have to question any movie that feels compelled to spend the last 5 minutes justifying itself as each expert explains why it was their patriotic duty to make this movie."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"It should also be required viewing for thoughtful hawks; Greenwald's restrained approach won't insult their intelligence, and will give them plenty to chew over."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Director Greenwald backs up his claim that the media acted like Bush administration lap dogs in covering the lead-up to a bogus war."
‑ Boo Allen, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
