The director's slovenliness is a torture device of its own, but the grueling point is well taken

Director Michael Winterbottom brings us face-to-face with the national humiliation of Guantanamo prison where the Geneva Convention and legal protocol have been disposed of like the now-filthy rivers of our country.

If we ever felt like the soldiers and interrogators seen here were in any way human, Winterbottom and Whitecross' indictment of their behavior would hit twice as hard.

Christopher Campbell
Cinematical

An astonishing tale of survival, a kind of modern Odyssey with a touch of the old mistaken-identity scenario, presented in a pointedly discriminating first-person narrative.

While THE ROAD TO GUANTÁNAMO treats the men's tales with respect, astute viewers will question the nature of the youths' visits.

Gripping, nightmarish, and at times bleakly funny, The Road To Guantánamo is far too important a personal testimony to go unheard.

Cinema em Cena

Forte sem jamais se tornar apelativo, é uma denúncia contundente que expõe, de forma inequívoca, os abusos, a crueldade e a arrogância atroz do governo norte-americano, cujos integrantes deveriam ser julgados por crimes de guerra.

| Original Score: 5/5

Road to Guantánamo is surprisingly confusing about how they got themselves captured %u2026 Perhaps the most astounding aspect of the story is the revelation that their experiences have helped them become better, stronger people

Revulsion can be an effective tool in exposing wrongdoing. But in the murky confrontation between militant Islam and the West, truth will always be the better road to freedom.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Raw, riveting filmmaking that shines a light on the dark underbelly of the 'war on terror.' . . . a searing exposé of how badly our supposedly democratic, rights-upholding part of the world has lost its way since September 11.

August 27, 2006
Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

What happened to them was an accident, but what was done to them is a cautionary tale of how the treatment of prisoners reflects on their captors, and how such treatment can breed the very things we fear: defiant, hardened enemies of the West.

| Original Score: 3/4

Salt Lake Tribune

A startling indictment of post-9/11 injustice [that] should anger people of all political persuasions.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Tells a powerful story, even if you do have to wonder about the sensitivity of releasing a film like this so close to the anniversary of 9/11.

The conception doesn't work perfectly.... Still, the film is muscular, persuasive, and necessary without being exploitative.
