Critic Reviews for Senator Obama Goes to Africa

All Critics (3)

It plays more like an industrial video shown to businessmen in boardrooms, without a shred of personality.

Combustible Celluloid

Clocks in several minutes short of a feature. A wise decision, the pattern was on the verge of repetition. Overall, interesting & worthwhile, but not a must see.

Hollywood Report Card

Part personal odyssey, part diplomatic mission, this bio-pic reveals a sensitive side of the Illinois Senator while simultaneously establishing him as an international figure sincerely concerned about the host of woes presently plaguing Africa.

Audience Reviews for Senator Obama Goes to Africa

Good to see. Still what interest me is how politics works. Here is a man who knows and sees what should be done and once elected president "nothing" (almost nothing) happens. Can't wait to read Obama's After Presidency book and I truly hope he will write what happens in Washington.
