WMD weapons of mass destruction ?, 18 March 2005
Author: yas120 from United Kingdom

why is is that the best movies are often factual ? for years i been a regular user of IMDb and reading thousands and thousands of reviews of movies

finally i thought its about time i gave something back so my first review of a movie is the the government inspector (viewed last night on channel 4 UK) it must be a compliment to this movie to be my first review well it definitely is well worth viewing if you like factual political TV drama

this movie has not only great depth but feeling and lots of unanswered questions

the sound track is good - kind of haunting and sad

without going in to too much detail the movie is basically about doctor David Kelly and i would suggest if you don't know who he was and the events that took much media coverage about him a few years ago then probably this movie is not for you but i thought it was great even though how the government got away with it i can never understand watch the movie and you may understand what i mean ?

well done to the director
