All Critics (48) | Top Critics (23)

Packs a powerful punch if you're ready for a lesson in foreign policy.

Top Critic

Made up of almost nothing but talking heads, and no matter how cogent their statements, it makes for a pretty static movie that's unlikely to engage anyone opposed to its point of view.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Top Critic

Despite its slant, the movie offers some illuminating details, and director Robert Greenwald constructs a solid argument that the Iraq war was driven more by expedient politics than facts.

Uncovered: The War on Iraq is like a trial lawyer's summation during a lengthy case in which allegations are familiar but their full context is not.

Any person voting in this year's presidential election owes it to America's future to see this film.

Top Critic

Uncovered has no interest in explaining the Bush administration's case for war for them: This is the prosecution's argument, and it is extremely well-made.

Audience Reviews for Uncovered: The War on Iraq

You won't find anything particularly revelatory in this doc from Robert Greenwald about how the Bush administration orchestrated a war based on flimsy evidence. Seeing it all laid out again in detail provides a reminder of how grateful we all should be for having the likes of Bush out of office.
