The film is certainly anti-Obama but it does provide food for thought for the undecided.

Presented as a conspiracy-thriller with ominous music and zig-zaggy camerawork, "2016" hammers at suspicions, not issues -- a dishonorable tactic whether from the right or the left.

The film asks the question "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?," then posits some disturbing answers. Disturbing, but dubious.

The film is not after new insight; rather, it's intent on laying out the arguments of a man who has given the same lecture countless times. That makes for a sluggish film. Even its outrage falls flat.

An exercise in preaching to the choir.

Not the hatchet job I thought it would be, but a fairly serious-minded attempt to get to the heart of some of the decisions President Obama has made (and not made) during his first term in the White House. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

Conservatives have Dinesh D'Souza. Liberals have Michael Moore. We all lose.

Can't be construed as a hatchet job, nor does the polite and well-spoken D'Souza seem to aspire to such...yet it doesn't succeed as sheer bravura entertainment.

...lush cinematography and a keen editing rhythm give at least the impression of a seriousness the film sorely lacks.

Highly entertaining, eye-opening, scary and enraging. You'll never look at Obama the same way ever again nor will you trust his empty promises.

Not interviewed by the filmmakers are Obama's political supporters, but this isn't that kind of documentary.

While it's highly unlikely that anyone predisposed to championing Obama would be won over by the sound and fury here, there's no gainsaying the value of 2016 as a sort of Cliffs Notes precis of the conservative case against [Obama].
