The Unbelievers Reviews

    For such a heady topic, it’s frustratingly shallow. It plays like an extended trailer.

    This is an angsty physics lecture disguised as a subversive documentary. For a film covering such curious individuals as Dawkins and Krauss, it doesn't actually seem that curious about anything other than its very myopic perspective: that science cancels out religion. Irritated and irritating.

    The amount of sheer ignorance and foolishness to come out of both Dawkins and Krauss's mouth, is both seamless and mind blowing. For the film itself, it's heavy handed, hand fisted and downright boring.

    Too much repetition of content no real depth. Very underwhelming, could have been so much better.

    Very interesting film by two titans in the scientific community.

    Interesting concept but could have done with more depth.

    And this is the guy that thinks, a mindless nothing created everything. It's funny about Richard Dawkins... he won't believe in an eternal, omniscient Creator, but he can fall in-line with Krauss and believe in the almighty nothing. I don't have enough faith to be an atheist.

    Some of The Unbelievers is inspiring and heartfelt discussions and speeches on the importance of critical thinking and free thought, but most of it plays out like an overextended, overproduced music video which just happens to have 2 clever blokes in it. I watched the Bill Maher documentary Religulous not long ago, and it was far funnier, far more informative and far more rewatchable. That's not to denigrate the work and efforts of Krauss, Dawkins, Dennett and others by any means. It just doesn't offer up as much substance, and often has a hard time keeping focus, with its awkward editing often leaving you baffled as to what's actually happening. Not terrible, but I definitely found Religulous to be the more rewarding experience.

    Religious bias is the reason for the bad reviews of this documentary. How can we expect superstitious people to have an objective opinion on this topic.

    For almost an hour and a half the two atheists with a following comparable to rock stars go around spouting scientism. At no point do they actually offer any evidence or arguments for why they are right. Just a few buzzwords and soundbites referencing evolution, and higher education, and such. There's also almost nobody to counter their claims apart from a few hand picked clips intended to embarass opponents. E.g. the scene where the brave crowd of 100s of atheists heckle and mock two street preachers. The best comeback allowed was from satirist Stephen Colbert. Very interesting that no mention is given to the numerous theologians and philosophers who have utterly decimated the written work of the two frontmen.
