Regardless of your politics, it's hard to dismiss the disturbing assertions of this cheaply made but powerful documentary.

Stealing America is basically a rallying tool for activists.

It helps for a documentary about America's broken voting system to be flush with facts and outrage. But a little filmmaking wouldn't hurt, either.

What Stealing America lacks in formal elegance it makes up for in important information that deserves far more compelling delivery, as does its call for a return to paper ballots.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote is sobering. The film suggests that come Nov. 4, the votes of Republicans, Democrats and independents alike might not be counted fair and square.

Amateurish but thorough with the tone of an ominous filmstrip. Right-wingers will cry "Paranoid!" but should we demand more neutrality from a film than we do of our elections?

Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory, and I'm more than willing to believe that Kerry really won. But Fadiman offers only circumstantial evidence when a smoking gun is needed.

Functions as an organizing tool for people worked up about the important issue, but is hardly suitable as a commercial doc release.

A clumsy if well-intentioned work of recycled propaganda, a mixture of hard evidence, random anecdote and far-flung inference that may convince some viewers that a clear verdict can be rendered on that impossibly murky event.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote might have been this year's most alarming and patriotic documentary if it weren't so shoddy and dull.

This well-crafted documentary about the purported theft of the 2004 presidential election could well be the feel-good movie of the summer -- after all, it absolves the general public for everything that happened.

The case it lays out is factually sketchy, but as a movie, it's unforgivable.
