Jerry Ensminger isn't an environmental or public health crusader as much as a grieving father.

Pic forges a clear storyline through a sea of scientific reports, doublespeak denials and personal anecdotes (the docu snagged Tribeca's docu editing award), and a consistent picture emerges of a stonewalling military agency.

It makes an impact. These men fought for our right to pursue our own American Dreams. And as thanks, they had theirs ripped away from them.

Shot on a variety of affordable video cameras, from the older HD standard Sony EX1 down to the classic Panasonic DVX100, Semper Fi has a very intimate visual look.

Beyond heartbreaking are scenes of afflicted Marine families and workers at Camp Lejeune giving testimony to a corporate-biased panel, who seemingly couldn't care less. And what the Tea Party and GE may have to do with all of this, but aren't talking.

Honolulu Star-Advertiser

Semper Fi: Always Faithful carefully follows the conduct of this case, which is largely unknown by the general public. It is superbly constructed without being preachy.

Shockya.com

A damning documentary about drinking water contaminants at a military training base spanning a period of 30 years that is at once emotionally powerful and a little more under-sketched than one might like it to be.

PopMatters

Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger is the kind of person, you come to see in Semper Fi: Always Faithful, who takes the Marine Corps' credo utterly seriously.

Movie Dearest

Riveting. More than worth an investment of time and money on the part of both military personnel and civilians. One of the five best documentaries of 2011.

Slant Magazine

As a political act, Semper Fi hews closer to the spinelessness of your average elected Democrat.

Film Journal International

This heart-wrenching, activist documentary goes for the heart and the mind with its dramatic story of a crusading Marine Corps veteran fighting for victims of water pollution at Camp Lejeune.
