It's not compelling; in fact, there are times when it's not especially interesting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Supporters of Bush will condemn it while his detractors will cheer, but it's unlikely to change anyone's mind about who they will vote for this November.

Even if one agrees with all of Moore's arguments, the film reduces decades of American foreign policy failures to a black-and-white cartoon that lays the blame on one family.
May 3, 2005
Fair and balanced, as Fox News might say, this is not.
June 24, 2004
Michael Moore's new documentary is more ranting and raving than effective filmmaking.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
May 17, 2004
The sporadically effective docu trades far more in emotional appeals than in systematically building an evidence-filled case against the president and his circle.
June 28, 2004
The left will stay left, the right will stay right and the folks on the fence will still be rational rather than blindly following this capped crusader.

Moore opens with a blitz of such cheeky sarcasm that he may well alienate and discredit himself with the very undecided and right-leaning voters he means to convert.

Moore would,...have us believe that Baghdad under Hussein was a utopia of children in playgrounds and happy, smiling people everywhere before the U.S. moved in.

A film so sloppy, illogical and formulaic that it begs the questions: Can a hatchet job actually elicit sympathy for its sitting-duck target?

Instead of the incendiary expose we were promised, Fahrenheit 9/11 is more like a Bic lighter that has been fired up at one too many rock concerts.

June 25, 2004
Fahrenheit 9/11 can be funny, moving and shocking, but it's also manipulative and not above the occasional cheap shot.

It riled me up, but not at the content - at the way Moore chose to send his message. I've seen enough heavy-handed manipulation, thank you very much.

December 6, 2004
It's a shame [Moore] must use so much sarcasm, mean-spirited mockery, and media manipulation to make his argument, because his ideas deserve serious consideration.

June 22, 2004
Childishly simplistic... it runs in circles willy-nilly, throwing in the occasional cheap shot while breathlessly telling us stuff we already knew.
February 14, 2005
For me this film lost most of its relevance on November 3rd 2004.
Full Review| Original Score: 5/10
September 28, 2006
The problem with Fahrenheit 9/11 is not that it is one-sided, per se; it is that Moore barely acknowledges there even is another side.
