Driven by Michael Moore's sincere humanism, Sicko is a devastating, convincing, and very entertaining documentary about the state of America's health care.

Sicko is wildly comic while tearing apart the country's health care system.
There's plenty of grandstanding, most of it very funny. And in this instance, all that sizzle is selling the steak.
If other countries can provide their people with universal health care, why can't we? If we can't, who are we?
Mr Moore's excellent new film is a wakeup call.
Though the focus occasionally strays, the film emerges as a fascinating exploration and powerful indictment of a pressing national problem. This is Moore's biggest, best and most impassioned work.
Metaphorically speaking, it goes straight for the jugular.
The first line of attack exemplifies Moore at his maverick best... Less interesting or sustained are his rose-tinted views of European health service systems.
This is the essential ill that Sicko addresses, in an eruption that's the most unruly and uncategorizable part of the whole movie, and the most unmistakably heartfelt. You want the truth? Moore can handle the truth.
Sicko offers still plenty to get riled up about, but the firebrand ire of Fahrenheit 9/11 seems to have mellowed a little.
While Moore's sins aren't nearly as terrible or significant as those of the political system to which he stands opposed, his unabashed tendency to talk down to his audience is symptomatic of our culture of mediocrity.
Equal parts laugh-riot and call to arms.
In trying to decipher how Michael Moore has achieved his widespread popularity in the face of a somewhat cavalier attitude toward factual precision, there's no underestimating his savvy choice of targets.
Of all the documentaries directed by Michael Moore, I felt that Sicko was one of his more lazy efforts. Though the film tackles another important subject matter, I really didn't think that much about the film. I thought it was entertaining, but compared other documentaries that Michael Moore has directed, Sicko is my least favorite. I enjoyed the film, but I also felt that Michael Moore was showing signs of running out of things to say with his documentaries. I felt Sicko navigated the usual territory that Michael Moore travels through. The film definitely is entertaining and exposes yet another important issue, however compared to Fahrenheit 9/11 or Bowling for Columbine, this documentary isn't that great. I much preferred Moore's other documentaries. Sicko tackles the American health care system, and though it's an interesting documentary, I felt there was something missing. The film definitely showed us the realities of the American health care system.Sicko is entertaining, funny and sad at times. The film criticizes the health care system of America, and Moore outlines his points perfectly. However at the same time, it's clear that Michael Moore is running out of ideas How far can you take the criticism that everything that is the USA? I personally feel Moore has explored every bit of the subject matter. Sicko is worth watching, but is not as engaging as his previous works.
Very interesting look into the world of the American health care. Michael Moore is very convincing but that's kind of the problem as if he stating his opinion or is what he's saying true?
Shocking to say the least. Once again, Michael Moore makes me happy I'm not an American citizen. It's truly sad to see that the wealthiest country in the world treats it people like disposable garbage. Not quite as good and enjoyable as Moore's previous films, but still a very touching and relevant documentary that I think everyone should see (especially members of the American government). Even though Moore may not be entirely objective, he makes some very good points that we can all relate to. This movie is definitely going to arouse a lot of debate and hopefully it will make a change for the better.
