The filmmakers are more hands off than your average agitdoc director, but their point is unmistakable.

Jesus Camp doesn't just preach to the converted, it bores and frightens them.

Some lively material - but nothing new.

Flawed editing and intrusive and irritating commentary hardly detract from the shock value of this disturbing documentary. Compulsory viewing for anyone in the least bit concerned about religious extremism.

This gripping shock-doc looks inside the Kids on Fire evangelical summer camp in North Dakota, where training starts young for a "new army of God" to "take back America for Christ".

This unabashedly liberal documentary tries to redress the balance by giving the rest of America a wake up call: not all scary fundamentalists come strapped with explosives.

November 23, 2007
Filmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady don't bother with a polemical voiceover a la Michael Moore but skilfully stitch together the comments of the evangelicals themselves. It doesn't make for a pretty picture.

A brave, thoughtful documentary.

Funny, sad and horrifying. Anti-fundamentalist rather than anti-Christian, this deserves to preach to more than just the converted.

Almost as scary as "Village of the Damned". 12 year olds who aspire to be the next James Dobson!

will be viewed as a modern classic in the decades to come.

January 24, 2007
With an admirable impartiality, filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady allow the camera to make these kids look like Bible-thumping kooks as they quote scriptures and try to convert strangers they meet on the street.

Effective documentary, if somewhat repetitious.

One of the scariest movies I've ever seen. It's not a question of differing beliefs; it's a question of a separate society that will not accept differing beliefs

fascinating, eye-opening ... Although non-believers might find some of Fischer's rituals laughable, 'Jesus Camp' takes both the woman and her crusade very seriously, as it should.

O fato é que é assustador perceber que Fischer, Haggard (que hipócrita!) e demais pastores realmente acreditam no acerto de suas ações, jamais percebendo que o que chamam de "salvação" beira, na verdade, o abuso de crianças.
