This is another unhelpful screed, uncontaminated by sense or perspective, that preaches loudly to the choir.

This documentary's extra-long running time and a narrator who sounds like a sedated Star Trek computer won't win many converts.

In our current polarized cultural climate, it seems there are fewer and fewer people for whom The Corporation is a wake up call.

Film Journal International

Achbar and Abbott would have had a first-rate film had they stuck with their conceit -- corporations as inmates running the asylum -- but they dilute their case in an attempt to make it irrefutable.

Covers too many corporate evils to be anything more than superficial.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

It's like a company that diversifies into so many different product lines that it forgets what its core mission is.

Kevin Courrier
Boxoffice Magazine

For all its hysterical bleating about the pervasive evils of corporate control, The Corporation is itself a conformist piece of propaganda that has its own corporate mindset.

Loey Lockerby
Kansas City Star

Far too often, watching The Corporation is like watching someone deliver a lengthy book report, with constant repetition of themes and an unfortunate tendency to state the obvious.

Planet Sick-Boy

Its intent and message are dead on, but The Corporation just doesn't work that well as a film.

A history lesson, a warning shot and damning personality profile, all backed up with expert interviews.

An impassioned polemic, filled with information sure to break up any dinner-table conversation.

Sharp-witted, infuriating and at times depressing.

Like Michael Moore (though with a sight more technical and theoretical sophistication), the filmmakers are pretty nimble at filling the screen with snappy graphics and canny editing to keep you alert and amused.

Corporations are out to get you, and you need to be afraid. You need to lock your back door at night and keep a gun under your pillow.

Canadian doc is a great look at the business of being a business -- even if it's a smidge overlong and made to confirm more than convert.

A movie that is fascinating and frustrating in about equal measures.

A staggering number of interviews and piles of footage both stock and new provide insight and provoke thought, and the whole thing's pretty darn entertaining, too.
