This is chilling stuff, worthy of the most cunning of fictional thrillers but all too horrifyingly real...

Basically preaching to the choir, of course. But that doesn't mean that the sermon isn't one that needs to be heard.

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.

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.

Condoleeza Rice says: "Saddam Hussein cavorts with terrorists."

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.

This feature actually is better suited as an episode of PBS' Frontline than as a theatrical release.

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.

Unrolls like an American tragedy...If you thought Fahrenheit 9/11 burned the Bush administration, Uncovered pours gasoline on the flames.

Director Greenwald backs up his claim that the media acted like Bush administration lap dogs in covering the lead-up to a bogus war.

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.

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.

This documentary makes an effective argument that isn't likely to spur much debate, despite the efforts of the filmmakers to do just that.

Nothing in Uncovered: The War on Iraq will change your opinion, but it may give you bullet points to back up your cocktail-party arguments.

If you've ever wondered why we got into the Iraq war and what still faces us there, this is the film that can explain it to you (even if you agree with Bush's policies).

Clearheaded, practical and plenteous in evidence but smart and confident enough not to berate you.
