The film goes only to Mubarak's abrupt exit, and confines the ongoing struggle over democracy in Egypt to a final title card. Still, it is a stirring piece of work.

Ultimately, more than 800 demonstrators died amid countless displays of bravery and commitment. "Uprising" is a vital and valuable tribute to these courageous men and women - and to love of country.

Uprising could serve as an easy-to-follow guide for American citizens on how to successfully form and implement a revolution to overthrow their government if and when it turns into a dictatorship.

This important, moving event was, as we know, documented in real time, but in "Uprising" gets put into a crucial context.

The docu's relatively uninflected tone rarely participates in either the excitement or irony it chronicles.

Dry presentation can't undermine the inspirational effect of tales from the Tahrir Square frontlines.

Heavy on smartphone and news footage, Uprising offers but a few slivers of new light on its subject ...
