Republicans have long used these methods to influence the public with great success - all Moore does is play them at their own highly effective game.
February 26, 2010
For all his cheap tactics, Moore mounts a persuasive case that something is rotten in the current economic system.

Michael Moore has succeeded in getting a film on this subject actually released in cinemas: a very sharp and entertaining one at that.
February 26, 2010
Funny, angry and deadly accurate.

The most interesting aspect of Capitalism is a strain of melancholic nostalgia that runs through its latter segments
February 26, 2010
Still fighting the good fight for the working man, Capitalism is entertaining but conspicuously bankrupt of fresh ideas and insights. By now, Moore is starting to feel like less.
February 26, 2010
Moore comes up with enough of these startling moments to keep us watching, though he's certainly stronger on huff and puff than concrete solutions.
February 26, 2010
A troubling portrait of a country shaken by repossessions, exploitation and the rich sucking the life out of the poor.

The film is good fun. Perhaps we have seen it all before, but you could say that of a sunrise. Every sunrise is different and Moore's are usually worth getting out of bed for.

Moore is marvellously indignant and confrontational (he tries to make a citizen's arrest of the AIG board), and dramatises moments of rebellion and fight-back with relish. But there's something self-righteous and teenage-lefty about his rhetoric.
February 26, 2010
It may all feel a little obvious and heavy-handed in places but he makes a complex subject accessible and issues a call to arms that every hard-pressed homeowner will appreciate.
February 26, 2010
Moore deploys every weapon going, from real-life sob stories and sub-GCSE-level economics to an eye-opening anti-banker investigation, with hit-and-miss results.
February 26, 2010
The movie is archive-heavy and preachy, but it feels just right for the occasion.
February 26, 2010
A well made, convincingly argued documentary that's by turns informative, heart-breaking, shocking, funny, entertaining, utterly depressing and likely to induce tears of impotent rage.
February 26, 2010
It's the sort of film that everyone will end up seeing but no-one really cares when they see it. I could happily have waited for DVD.

...lets off the hook the greedy ****ers responsible for exploiting the lower classes, effectively tossing pebbles at its targets when it should be heaving boulders.

A typically uneven effort from documentarian Michael Moore...
December 29, 2009
Moore apparently can't make his mind which of two competing visions of America is the right one
December 27, 2009
Moore doesn't necessarily tell us anything new, but it's his gung-ho pursuit of accountability and compassion for working-class victims and crusaders that make his movies...worthwhile inquiries into how we live today
December 15, 2009
Moore makes the stories of injustice he's gathered the real meat of his film; and as he tells them, he shows a continued disillusionment at the depths the powerful are willing to go to against one's fellow man just for the sake of more wealth.
