Critic Review - ComingSoon.net

The filmmakers' intentions are kept deliberately vague but it's a surprisingly entertaining and informative doc that at least tries to address the debate over 'intelligent design' from another angle.

This rating is strange. He talks about how the camera starts off shaky, and Stein is copying Michael Moore's technique, and how he makes many errors in comparing Darwinism to the Nazi's, and how he doesn't create a dialogue in the best of ways. Yet he rates it 7.5/10 go figure...

The reviewer isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. Check out the comments over at http://www.comingsoon.net/news/reviewsnews.php?id=44147. Poor old Edward has got himself very confused about the whole thing.

Among the chestnuts he's thrown out: religion should not be discussed on the internet or anywhere, Expelled does not attempt to link 'Darwinism' (whatever that is) with Nazism / the Holocaust, unless you've done original research you can't claim to understand how evolution works.

You gotta love those wacky xians....

Deliberately vague? The commercials alone make it extremely obvious what agenda these Discovery Institute clowns are pushing. Heck, "No Intelligence Allowed" is enough to tell you what Ben Stein is pushing.

Are you for real?

"The filmmakers' intentions are kept deliberately vague"????
If this reviewer finds the intentions of the filmmakers vague, then there is little chance that he sees any problem with the point of the film: Deliberate censorship and persecution of ideas outside the accepted establishment in science and academia in the U.S.A.

You're a funny pencil-dicked fundie pissant. Love the ironic name, too; there's no surer way of bringing a new dark age then letting American fundamentalist maggots have power. They are the garbage of the planet, and their fat stupid children make sane people vomit.

Hey! A positive review from someone not openly a Xian nutcase liar!
He's 100% ignorant about the issues and the science, and he has bizarre standards of "entertaining and informative," AND he even notes, no doubt exhausting the little critical capacity he possesses, that the filmmakers had suspect "intentions" (that he considers these to have been kept "deliberately vague" indicates his IQ has been oft-compared with a bag o' hammers), but at least he says he sincerely liked the movie.

Kudos! However, I will never base my purchase of any entertainment material of any kind on his opinion.

i hope if anybody takes this movie seriously, they will please visit a couple sites.

search "scientific american mark mathis" on youtube.

search "pz myers expelled from expelled" on youtube.

or go to "expelledexposed.com"

this movie is only laughable to a certain extent... around half an hour in it starts to get pretty depressing if you know anything about the subject matter. it's a decent concept if only it remained neutral and if it actually explained evolution or intelligent design in the film. i still can't get over blatant bombardment of nazi images whenever evolution/darwinism/atheism is mentioned in the movie. it's obvious propaganda(which actually uses nazi propaganda film footage in the movie) and it's hard to believe this would persuade anybody who is a truly free thinker.

They intentions are vague? WTF. If anything is clear about this movie it's the "film maker's" intentions.

Once again, Ed shows us why he's one of the least respected critics on this website.
