A brilliant film by Michael Moore, and his most powerful to date. There are none of his usual little moments of humour. This is so stark and depressing, and at times I was so overcome with emotion that I used up a few Kleenex. He tells it as it is, and it's hard to get up to leave the theatre. Keep up the good work, Michael. As hard as it was to watch, the facts need to be known.
Very informative. Rating based on being a documentary, 5 stars is in order
The "1 star" reviewers don't seem to realize this is not a drama created by a writer. It's factual. It's a documentary. It's something we should know about, like it or not. It's not about best directing or best acting. It's about what's happening in our country, and it's scary. If you don't like what you saw, do something. Vote.
Moores' hi-jinx may appeal to the mentality of rabid frat-boy Kavanaugh supporters, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. This man, who clearly thinks himself mightier than the great lord himself, could only appeal to the type of person who thinks climate change is a hoax. I pray each night that Jesus would intervene in Mr.Moores sad life and show him that wage slavery is a real and systemic problem. Shame on you Mr Moore.
Had its moments, but overall not a great movie. Dragged a bit towards the end, but it made me chuckle here and there. Im happy to be the second non 1 or 5 star vote. Grow up people.
Michael Moore exposed our flaws and challenges us to be more engaged citizens. It is such a mirror of our polarized society that 58% of viewers loved it and 41% hated it, with practically no-one in between. Is there any room for dialog???
Was desperate to have some popcorn.....walked into this "Political porn Fest"..... ate my popcorn and immediately went to see Crazy Rich Asians....much more of a documentary than this High School "I'm so angry" super 8 movie !
a must see
If you like to pay cash for your propaganda, then this is for you. If you have more than two neurons working, stay away.
A democracy is only as valid and meaningful as is an informed voting public. The PBS series "Frontline " also has a very excellent show on Trump's early years, business dealings, and up through elections. Socialism is an economic system that can be integrated with capitalism by voting on economic and social justice issues in a democracy (as long as are voting system hasn't been hijacked!!)
So biased I walked out
Seeing some of the ratings, to me says some have not bothered to go see the film, they are just stating their own political preferences. This is an important film if it was just about the Flint Michigan situation. I say go with an opening mind and be prepared to think.
Lays out the whole picture about what is going on in this country!
Moore comes from a socialist/communist position so President Trump or any constitutionalist/conservative is a threat to his end goal of a socialist nation which would eliminate much of the liberties many leftist Americans that for granite. Amazing that so many who slept thru history/economics and failed will trade our fought for liberties for government hand outs.
An eye opener to anyone. Trump’s fans do not understand this movie. They tweet too much. Lol
Just stop already. So biased.
Nope. Don't bother. Too biased and too political.
Another eye-opening film by Michael Moore.
Very inspiring. This is not partisan. He blames MI Republican governor and his cronies for the problem they created for the Flint, MI, as well as President Obama who drank the water saying the problem is solved. That's why Clinton lost Flint, Michigan voters.
Bunch of lies and so boring
Powerful and insightful! A must see!
Scattered docu that doesn’t illuminate very much of anything. Some interesting analysis of flint water crisis. Cringeworthy segments on school shooting and student activism. Canned score was painful to sit through and too obviously trying to evoke some semblance of emotional response. Went thinking it would be a take on Trump, didn’t really explore anything new or nuanced. Even the title is uninspired.
Should see this movie regardless of political persuasion!
Everyone needs to see this brilliant film! People who have written reviews saying things to the effect that Moore blames everything on republicans, have obviously NOT seen the film!!! ...and thus have no place writing reviews!!! The fact that Moore does not let republicans or democrats off the hook, is precisely why everyone must see it!!!! This film goes well betond party politics!!!! Well done Mr. Moore!!!👍
This is Moore's best work. Troubling to watch but important to see.
You have to be kidding...total crap.
another garbage movie by a garbage human
Trump’s fans can’t stand watching this movie because they loved Fox fake news and his idol playing golf every single weekend.
The best poster is him playing golf. Lol I love the poster.
Starts out describing Flint and their poverty and water problems. Then proceeds to blame Trump. Ignoring that Flint has been democrat run for 70 years. That pretty much sums up the entire movie. Moore goes to democrat failure cities and asks why Trump hasn't fixed them yet.
Depressing but fearfully informative.
That is one sexy poster and I want it on my side of the wall.
This director wants to make money out of politics which he clearly lack of understanding. You will be manipulated, brainwashed and feeling scared of your world as made up opinion of this creator. He wants you to sleep and continue sleeping. Like a zombie. Waste of time.
Isn't it interesting that the trumpers will only give it a one. I doubt that any of them have even seen the film. Instead of attacking the film they seem to attack the reviewer just like the guy in Washington. It is probably a campaign of the right to trash the film but the truth will always come through. This is an excellent film. Well done and a little scary.
Lethargic effort from a fading director..
Never thought this would even be shown in theaters. Rumors, obfuscation, distortions, and lies. It reminds of those films in 70s about Bigfoot sightings and finding Noah's Ark. Moore disgraces himself with this one.
Left feeling manipulated.
Interesting movie. This movie make you think.
Charming and insightful.
Plodding, and way too long.
Imagine the whiniest person you know, decided to make a movie. This is it.
Moore needs to rein in the waistline if he wants to blend in with OWS crowd. Five houses, tens of millions of dollars, and obese. Yep one of the little people, just like Al Gore.
This movie was amazing. Only for people who don’t tweet too much. lol
Super well movie. Well done.
Hmmm, I think Moore is a fan of Josef Goebels....tell a big lie enough times and people believe it. This is not entertainment, but propaganda.
So, here are the ratings and they are political; if your conservative a one and if your a liberal five. I would not recommend this to anyone who is not a snowflake or liberal; I thought it was another biased Moore flic.....made up info and agenda.
