Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As scrappy and passionate as the actions it documents, "United in Anger: A History of Act Up" delivers a living tribute to a movement spawned by death and despair."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Que o ACT UP foi essencial ao desmistificar a AIDS e melhorar as condições de suas vítimas é algo inquestionável. Mas Unidos pela Raiva não precisava repetir isso por 90 minutos para provar o argumento."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Those Wall Street occupiers could learn something from this superbly informative and moving documentary about a movement that really got the job done."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A documentary that could have been a lot angrier but aims to educate rather than agitate."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"This story deserves more than a merely functional telling, which is really all it manages here."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Crucially, the variety of interviewees in Hubbard's doc-men and women of different races and classes-underscores just how diverse ACT UP was in its heyday."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"A telling reminder of just how effective civil disobedience still can be when you tap into a forbidden emotion to unleash the requisite righteous rage needed to challenge an intransigent authority in collective and constructive fashion."
‑ Kam Williams, AALBC.com
