Critic Reviews for Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Trumped plays way too much like a highlight reel from the last year, offering not nearly enough insight into the questions surrounding Trump's campaign and now-presidency.

The rushed nature of the film basically predetermined its mediocre quality.

January 30, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's easy to imagine a documentary coming along in five or 10 years that cuts through the noise, but it won't be this one.

Top Critic

A sharp, fun, disquieting, and fleetly edited chronicle of the entire campaign year, inside and outside the media bubble, with the focus held obsessively on Donald Trump's rise.

Does nothing to fill the need for thoughtful, probing docs about the threats facing our democracy.

...there is a kind of car-crash fascination in watching the events unfold...

Audience Reviews for Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time

½

What a missed opportunity. This behind-the-scenes look at the 2016 election cycle is almost nothing but flat re-cap, with few exclusive interviews and a glaring lack of insight and analysis. The "twist ending" comes as just as much of an unexpected shock as it did the first time. John Heilemann's excessive vulgarity also fails to impress.
