Their increasingly colorful, elaborate and large signatures sparked heated debate: Was graffiti an emerging art, a legitimate form of social criticism or vandalism pure and simple?

What distinguishes Jon Reiss's lively, sure-handed film from the rest is that it widens the spectrum by taking a comprehensively international viewpoint.

A colorful examination of property and public space, the rebellion of self-expression and an art form that's as controversial in art galleries as it is on the streets.

Jon Reiss' globetrotting documentary may not move people to hug their local graffiti tagger, but it at least gives context to a practice that many urbanites view as mindless vandalism.

The kinetic editing that keeps bopping from continent to continent never lets up, and it's often impossible to absorb the impressive array of images.

Bomb It offers a new way of looking at the world's cities, courtesy of the art world's fleeting phantoms, who often have to choose between buying food or a can of spray paint.

Bomb It! is a brisk and bracing portrait of the state of the art. Of course, the fact that the art is often a crime comes up ...

Bomb It lays out the history of graffiti art better than any other work that we can remember, and at the core of the film is a poignant social statement.

The subject is never less than fascinating, though the film's repetitive format and reiteration of the same points ad infinitum will wear you down before the paint can dry.

Bomb It's uncritical survey of world graffiti culture nods to history and cave art, then basically repeats itself.
