Critic Reviews for American Jihad

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5)

  • [It] goes beyond the hysteria and fear to offer a smart, measured and methodical look at how these men were indoctrinated into terror organizations such as the Islamic State, Al Qaeda and Shabab.

  • The film would be better if it teased out its ideas about personal interventions and how mainstream Muslims might be brought into such an approach, but it's still full of food for thought served at just the right moment.

    March 24, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It is ... a film rich in enterprise, compelling in its portraiture.

    March 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It's a fascinating investigation into the burgeoning threat our (and all Western) nations face from radical Islamic belief. Because as it argues, our true enemies aren't just the messengers of hate - it's their message itself.

  • Showtime's American Jihad drops you down a dark rabbit hole as it explores the lives of several homegrown terrorists, including the Tsarnaev brothers, responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.
