The movie's larger points are sobering and relevant, no matter how many times they've already been made.

You'll leave the picture shaken and stirred, knowing that if the right people were in charge, this whole Iraq thing could have worked. To call this film a "must-see" is an understatement.

Absorbing documentary that dissects the mind-numbing incompetence that has defined this White House.

Charles Ferguson holds this fact to be self-evident: that the chaos in Iraq is the direct result of a handful of bad policy decisions made very early in the war.

A clear-eyed appraisal and condemnation of Bush administration war policies as seen through the eyes of people in a position to note the disastrous choices that left a country in chaos.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
August 31, 2007
Narrated with a detached, grim authority by Campbell Scott, Ferguson's film is surely the most nonhistrionic cinematic explanation of our current geopolitical woes yet seen.

No End in Sight makes one thing clear: Were it not so bloody, the war in Iraq would be destined to become a case study in the nation's business schools.
| Original Score: 3/4

This one is not just a series of personal, one-sided attacks, as Moore's film seemed to be. Instead, filmmaker Charles Ferguson uses interviews with former Bush administration officials, journalists, former soldiers and others to make his case.

The film is not anti-war but anti-arrogance and anti-idiocy.

Ferguson's case is so confidently built that it seems unassailable...

You know the Iraq war is going badly. What you may not know is how it also started badly.
Mark Keizer
Boxoffice Magazine

...Ferguson's take has the precision and seriousness of purpose of a sniper's bullet while Moore's is a homemade shrapnel grenade.
| Original Score: 3/5
Sean Burns
Philadelphia Weekly

...the saddest, scariest horror movie I've seen in years.

Palo Alto Weekly

A blistering, on-point expose of the movers and shakers who paved our way into a senseless conflict.
