Critic Reviews for Uncovered: The War on Iraq

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (24)

Packs a powerful punch if you're ready for a lesson in foreign policy.

October 7, 2004 | Rating: C+

Made up of almost nothing but talking heads, and no matter how cogent their statements, it makes for a pretty static movie that's unlikely to engage anyone opposed to its point of view.

October 7, 2004 | Rating: C+

Despite its slant, the movie offers some illuminating details, and director Robert Greenwald constructs a solid argument that the Iraq war was driven more by expedient politics than facts.
