Mildly engaging for armchair politicos, but generally more successful as only a diagnostic statement of basic socioeconomic condition than a groundbreaking work in and of itself.

"American Made Movie" ends up feeling as if it were built from well-known facts and wishful thinking.

"American Made Movie" takes an effective micro-macro approach to unpacking the rise and fall - and potential rebirth - of the American manufacturing sector.

While this is no Michael Moore screamer-it's neither that annoying nor that entertaining-the filmmakers choose their stories for maximum effect.

The approach is as subtle as a U.S.-made Louisville Slugger to the head.

American manufacturing gets glossy, infomercial-style treatment in this tiresome documentary.

As an educational film, though, it's quite successful, explaining concepts like trade deficits and supply and demand with enough visual pizzazz to hold the interest of a lay audience.

It's a strong subject, one that hasn't been fully explored in a theatrical doc, and writer Ryan C. Wilson and directors Nathaniel Thomas McGill and Vincent Vittorio do a solid if unexceptional job of tackling it.

American Made Movie reveals itself as a superficial inquiry, substituting random anecdotes for genuine proposals about how the country might renew its manufacturing base.

The documentary's refusal to challenge the comfort zones of its target audience is apparent throughout.
