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.

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.

July 16, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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.
