Movie Info

We Are The Giant transports viewers to the front lines of the Arab Spring through the courageous stories of six extraordinary people grappling with the dilemma at the heart of all struggles for justice and freedom: whether to take up arms and fight, or to advocate change through peace and non-violence. Filming largely in secret and at great risk over the past two and a half years, award-winning director and former war correspondent Greg Barker (Manhunt) frames intimate portraits of individuals from very different walks of life resolving to stand up for what they believe in and challenge the oppressive regimes determined to crush popular uprisings. -- (C) Music Box Films

  • It doesn't even begin to cover the scale and toll of the cataclysm in any of the three countries, not to mention the Arab Spring as a whole.

  • "We Are the Giant" is the movie equivalent of a flashy historical exhibition in which the only text accompanying the gripping photographic collection consists of captions.

  • We Are the Giant tries so hard to get viewers to cheer on the recent Arab Spring uprising that it distressingly ignores the individual factors that led Libyans, Syrians, and Bahrainis into the streets in the first place.

    Dec 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The personal, often achingly sad and heroic accounts are intercut with news and handheld footage from the rebellions and a hefty and rather obvious dose of quotes and stills from previous revolutionary leaders.
