The film, instead of confining itself to who Litvinenko was and how he came to be killed, wanders off into too many tangents and mentions too many cases. The epic corruption of today's Russia is far too widespread to fit into a single film.

... no crackerjack action flick but rather a dizzying, unfocused and, frankly, dull assemblage of revelations and denials.

Spreading its net too wide, this documentary lacks the smallest counterbalance, so one is not allowed a roundly informed decision. .

A film that does an injustice to the whole chaotic situation in Eastern Europe by making it seem not just impossible, but impenetrable.

Who needs paranoid thrillers when we have Russia's deathless gift for autocracy as plot material?

Although a first-rate investigative documentary on its own, Andrei Nekrasov's Poisoned by Polonium also serves as a sequel to 2004's Disbelief.

The geo-political and historical value of what the interviews expose is, perhaps, more important in the end than telling the tale like a thriller

A muckraking documentary of vast shuddery intrigue, makes a disquieting case that Russia hasn't just slipped back to its old oligarchic ways -- but that, in fact, it's a more repressive, corroded place than it was in the age of the Soviet Union.
