Critic Reviews for The War on Democracy

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (3)

  • John Pilger's angry story of how a rapacious US covertly brutalised its Latin American neighbours should be a compelling documentary. And so it often is, despite being marred by a dewy-eyed interview with President Hugo Chvez of Venezuela.

    July 9, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • But it is all very watchable, even though we have been through most of it before

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Pilger's portentous voiceover and intrusions into shot bespeak an excruciating vanity

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The show is ultimately ruined by its ophidian writer/presenter Pilger, who is something of an acquired taste

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A dynamic and emotionally effective diatribe against global capitalism's role in undermining popular second or third-world democracies

    June 15, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Tailored towards the small-screen.

    Amazing documentary about the truth about the one of the most controversial figures in the modern history - Hugo Chavez, and the role of the US government in killing the real democracy in Venezuela! Someone wrote about the movie: "You poor poor sheep! you sleep sleep sleep! Why wont you wake, the world is waiting for you, your mothers raped and murdered, your little sisters raped and murdered, your fathers raped and murdered, you sons, uncles, the world is raped and murdered. But the coke is sweet and pizza is good; the porn is hard and the music rocks..." This documentary hits you hard with the truth about the role of the "democratic" forces in destroying the real forces chosen by the democratic governments! There is no rules... everything is in play, destroying dreams through economical measures, napalm bombing of innocent countries, snipers, death squads... name it, they used it! Actually, they still use it! John Pilger YOU did a great job... I salute you!

    John Pilger always delivers with strong authority, just as polemic as Michael Moore, but much more intelligent. This documentary systematically unveils and explains the hypocrisy of America's stance on freedom and democracy. With a long lineage in coup d'etat's and replacing elected officials with dictators, it places the US's recent posturing on Russia and Georgia into an interesting light.
