Factual depiction of the events leading to the war after 9/11 (by lschrom)
This is a fascinating movie about the faulty and fabricated "intelligence" that dragged the US into ongoing war after 9/11. It's a true story about the Knight-Ridder news agency that reported the facts despite the efforts of the Bush-Cheney administration to mislead the American people in pursuit of an unjustifiable war. The movie follows the journalists who sought the truth and questioned the reality of the facts even as they observed their reputable colleagues who were mistakenly perpetrating falsehoods. The movie is neither a biographical description of journalists reporting <more>
about 9/11 nor is it a nuanced story about weapons of mass destruction: the movie describes the reality of the events and it is exciting to follow as the truth unfolds.
I don't know why some have given this bad reviews. Politcal reviews I guess. Fantastic movie with the usual excellent performaces from Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee.
It has everything!! (by piva-44480)
Of course, we already know most of what's in the movie! The greatness here is in the essence, the press controlled by the government. With such a cast of great actors, the witty way the script is written... It's a gem... :
Who is allergic to the truth? (by lesphillips-09129)
Ok, how did this movie manage to get made, let alone released? The information contained confirms all that I have learned in the last ten years regarding the illegal war in Iraq. Therefore, the huge majority of the world's population were "duped" by George Bush and Tony Blair. Watch the documentary "We are Many", the biggest mobilisation of protest ever witnessed which tried to avert WAR. How many people died in vain?Another great "Victory" for western powers based on lies as was the Vietnam debacle. Human disgrace, inhumanity, greed and degradation <more>
perpetrated by the monsters we elected into office!I have only written two reviews. This one is of far more importance and everyone should see this movie to question the official narrative. All governments lie all the time. All media is controlled to enable governments to do ANYTHING they want.Do yourself a favour and check out the history of the 20th Century. History is written by the "Victors" and it ain't what they told you at school.I think "Shock and Awe" is a great movie in every respect although it is delivered in a reserved manner almost as if the actors involved were afraid to be too passionate. I guess they dumbed down in fear of the movie not seeing the light of day?As it is, the content is more than enough to bring about the downfall of "Governments". PROFITEERING MURDERERS AND WARMONGERS!
Well written and produced! A must see picture! (by battlebuckships)
When I saw a few bad reviews from the media who sometimes I myself question for this title, and was directed by Rob Reiner. I had to see the film for myself..... Well, I completely enjoyed it.The actors were amazing as with that cast one would expect nothing less. Rob, as always, did a fantastic job guiding that project and the story all the way through to the end and was entertaining.I'm actually going to see it again, I enjoy true stories that get to the hart of the details and the bare truth. I love the cast who delivered a fantastic performance. I would recommend seeing this picture <more>
as I'm sure you'll see for yourself it was a pleasant watch and you will walk away thinking...: 5 Stars! *****Gary Cannavo Boston, USA
I heard that this was an excellent movie, but then I read some of the highly critical reviews over on Netflix. So, I watched the movie myself to determine the truth. Let me give you a heads-up. All the negative reviews that appear as "serious" and "sincere" are written by George W. Bush administration apologists attempting to erase his failed, tarnished legacy. This movie is brilliant, not just for its production quality and performances of the highly renowned cast of professional actors, but most of all, for its historical accuracy. The Knight Ridder News Agency should <more>
forever be remembered for their heroic efforts to bring the truth to the American people during the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld promotion of the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq.
Whether you like the film or not the fact remains there where no WMD and it was a pretence to War and the world has never been the same since, if a government can lie about one thing then they can lie about anything - open your eyes people.The way i look at the movie is regardless whether jessica biel is there for the pretties is that future generations will be made aware of what happened and what led up to the war in iraq, iran and afghanistan War and the "War on terror" which includes North West Pakistan, Somalia and Syria.It also shows why they want to stop free speech and <more>
alternative media, and control social media.Watch and listen and then do your own research.
A story we all need to be reminded of (by timdinchhammonds)
As you would expect with such a stellar cast, fine performances all round. I think the message of this film is even more pertinent today. It is beholden on us all, to look with a critical eye, at what those in power are saying; is it true, where is the evidence? If each of us can take some measure of skepticism, as shown by the journalists portrayed here, our society will be all the better for it. This film does truly crystalise, the criminal actions of the leaders of the time and the abject failure of the leading media organisations, whose primary function, is to hold those very same, to <more>
