Consensus: A political doc that methodically and effectively argues its case.

Charles Ealy
Dallas Morning News

Packs a powerful punch if you're ready for a lesson in foreign policy.

Tom Keogh
Seattle Times

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.

MaryAnn Johanson
Flick Filosopher

Eleanor Ringel Cater
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

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.

Tom Long
Detroit News

Any person voting in this year's presidential election owes it to America's future to see this film.

Frank Swietek

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.
