Critic Reviews for Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (10)

  • The 100-minute film does a phenomenal job detangling the numerous scenarios that led to Syria's civil war and current bloodbath, dispelling the notion that this conflict is too complicated for those not versed on the Middle East to understand.

  • A mostly impressive array of experts ... adds to the merciless clarity of this tragic picture.

    May 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Hell on Earth" portrays the Syrian citizens, who live in a morass of civil war, with an emotional directness we can't turn away from, to the point that it's no longer possible to think of those citizens as "them." They are us, or could be.

    April 30, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Hell on Earth is not an easy watch - it's infuriating and harrowing, and the footage is raw and visceral - but it should be compulsory viewing.

    August 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Everyone is above the law

    February 17, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film argues that the people of the world are all connected. While there are certainly disasters when one nation involves itself in the civil war of another nation, there are also disasters which result from nations standing aside, doing nothing.
