Grant De Palma this much: At least he did not wait until 14 years after hostilities concluded to pull his catch-all war metaphor from the dark cupboard of his psyche.

War was ever a Kubrick-ian hell-ride, futile, fundamentally unheroic and de-humanising, but now it's mocked by a mad multimedia accompaniment innocent of all real ethical, moral and humanitarian value.

De Palma's made a shattering true crime feel phony

It's condescending to the audience.

It's hard to watch, and should be. But harder for other reasons. As an experiment in storytelling, it's mainly tedious and phony.

Redacted, director Brian DePalma's ugly little Iraq War movie, wastes an interesting approach on trite, crude and painfully superficial content.
November 30, 2007
It is simply so amateurish and overacted that it makes it impossible to become invested in the documentary-like reality De Palma hopes to achieve.

A crude, unbearably smug attempt to provoke outrage from a filmmaker desperate to be relevant again.
