Movie Info

Death by China pointedly confronts the most urgent problem facing America today - its increasingly destructive economic trade relationship with a rapidly rising China. Since China began flooding U.S. markets with illegally subsidized products in 2001, over 50,000 American factories have disappeared, more than 25 million Americans can't find a decent job, and America now owes more than 3 trillion dollars to the world's largest totalitarian nation.

It sure makes you want to buy American. Assuming you can find anything American to buy.

It would make a nice TV infomercial, but certainly doesn't deserve a big-screen release.

It is ... unabashedly one-sided and is short on solutions, other than the usual "Call your Congressional representatives."

[A] rabid piece of agitprop, which swamps a number of legitimate arguments against the current trade arrangement between the U.S. and China with the strident brushstrokes of a bad editorial cartoon.

One need not fully subscribe to Peter Navarro's demonization to appreciate his lucid wake-up call to the imminent dangers of the huge U.S.-China trade imbalance and its disastrous impact on the American economy.

Doc offers plenty of good reasons to worry about China, but is astonishingly heavy-handed.

Manic and scattershot, Death by China is too overheated to impart its case with surgical precision. It feels, by God, but also overwhelms. Ergo, barely a recommendation.

...unabashed agitative propaganda in the style of Michael Moore. It's selective in its facts, and it doesn't really engage its putative audience as adults, opting instead for cutesy graphics.

Angry, fatally biased but watchable documentary ranting at China for its transgressions and damage done to the U.S. economy cries out for second opinions from other corners besides those damning.

Further confirmation that agitprop documentaries have become wedded to a template that undermines their very arguments.

As a wake-up call... Navarro scores points.
