All Critics (48) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (37) | Rotten (11)

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

    Oct 7, 2004 | Rating: C+
  • 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.

    Oct 7, 2004 | Rating: C+
  • 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.

    Sep 23, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • 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.

    Sep 10, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Any person voting in this year's presidential election owes it to America's future to see this film.

  • 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.
