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.

The bulk of the film contains as much hysterical rhetoric as sober analysis.
