Critic Reviews for Military Intelligence and You!
It's a great idea for 20 minutes. Unfortunately, the movie's 78 minutes long.
Although [director] Kutzera does a great job of cinematic excavation and editing, Military Intelligence and You! never manages to overcome its tone of glib condescension and soar to Strangelovian heights.
An ingenious satire that could easily tip toward self-congratulation yet never does.
We get the idea -- we may even agree with it: Just don't make us sit through 78 minutes of empty cleverness.
Audience Reviews for Military Intelligence and You!
Quite a good comedy. Nothing ground breaking but the satire hits the nail a few time. True enough, the next generation will have no idea why a bunch of filmmakers could have feel the urge to share their thoughts on military intelligence but then again one doesn't need to equal Molière every times one takes a camera. The WWII spoof propaganda is quite skillfully integrated into the real stuff to create a rather thrilling war story, where the joke never overpowers the logic of the fiction. The tone of that type of movies is fairly well respected. Besides, the film is not a blind attack on America as such, it acts more like a positive criticism (both the hypocrisy of the 1940s racist country fighting for freedom and the naughties power spreading war thoughtlessly). Overall I enjoyed it a lot and I'd recommend it both for WWII era movies enthusiasts as politically conscious cinephiles.
