August 26, 2004
This hastily slapped-together festival of talking heads is so staid, one longs for some of Moore's look-at-me theatrics, and despite the movie's sober-citizen approach, it's no less one-sided than Fahrenheit 9/11.
September 24, 2004
This feature actually is better suited as an episode of PBS' Frontline than as a theatrical release.

September 3, 2004
There is nothing new in Robert Greenwald's sobering doc.

October 7, 2004
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.

October 8, 2004
You have to question any movie that feels compelled to spend the last 5 minutes justifying itself as each expert explains why it was their patriotic duty to make this movie.

Moore created a movie; Greenwald gives us a cinematized blog.
August 23, 2004
Greenwald does nothing with the interviews, basically just posting them, one after the other, with the hope that viewers will do his job for him. The result is one-sided and bone-dry.

After listening to this steady anti-Bush drumbeat for the past several months, even the most devout progressives may start to feel as if they've heard much of this sermon a hundred times before.
August 27, 2004
Even though Greenwald has an extensive Hollywood background, his showmanship abandons him when he takes on partisan projects such as this one.

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.

Nothing in Uncovered: The War on Iraq will change your opinion, but it may give you bullet points to back up your cocktail-party arguments.

August 30, 2004
Clearheaded, practical and plenteous in evidence but smart and confident enough not to berate you.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
August 20, 2004
Because the clips are more than just sounds bites, Uncovered is more successful than Fahrenheit 9/11 in capturing President Bush as a deer-in-the-headlights.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 12, 2005
This is chilling stuff, worthy of the most cunning of fictional thrillers but all too horrifyingly real...
August 20, 2004
The movie manages to slap some of the cynicism out of you, even if it feels more like a box of dossiers than a documentary.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 20, 2004
A crisp historical document that is worth your time.

August 20, 2004
A film that's a model of a concise, cogent case for the prosecution.
September 6, 2004
If you've ever wondered why we got into the Iraq war and what still faces us there, this is the film that can explain it to you (even if you agree with Bush's policies).

September 10, 2004
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.
