Audience Reviews for Invisible Children
Short version: Overblown vanity project. Long version: It fails to add anything new to the dialogue. Yes, these are the Kony people. They walk into Africa, expecting have a vacation, and realize, oh wait, maybe conditions in Africa aren't so great. It's so staged, and I can tell the vacation premise is fake. They clearly intended to make this horrendously sad film, and I feel manipulated having watched it. Sure, it's a good cause, but this film is crap. It's so pretentious. It's less about bad conditions in Africa(which, like the Kony video, seem highly exaggerated), but more about the filmmaker's mental masturbation about how great people they are for recognizing this cause. Att; the end of the day, it's an overblown vanity project; the filmmakers have a noble cause, but it's obvious to me that the circumstances of the film are forced and handled in such a blunt and uncoordinated way that I fail to take anything away other than Jason Russell is a pretentious ass.
Invisible Children is certainly not your most prepared and cohesively put together documentary, but this is no reason in the least why the film should not be shown more and discussed more. The three young men who stitched together this eye opening piece use a simple and straightforward method of revealing their issue, which in due respect, is perhaps what more documentaries should be doing now a days instead of prancing around the issue. The rawness of this piece is truly unforgettable as the boys said that it would be. With this in mind, it is to be noted that they accomplished what they set out to do and so much more. Go out and see this.
this movie is absolutely amazing, it will make you thank, it will make you want to stand up and make change for the better, it will make you want to love and end hate.
