Storyline

This extremely powerful 89 minute film presents comprehensive documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up, including military and civilian experimentation, dating back over 60 years. As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of "unknown causes," they wait for answers from their respective governments, but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their "disposable army" mentality. From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a "mystery disease." How many more will have to die before action is taken? Written by William Lewis

Not the best made documentary
22 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They definitely could have made this much better. For a movie made in 2005, it felt like it was something out of 1985. The music, which was annoyingly and eerily played throughout the movie, sounded like it was out of the 80's. The graphics looked 80's-like. Production was very poor. I have seen some low-budget documentaries, and they were produced much better than Beyond Treason.

These things made watching this film very difficult.

Sicko, Michael Moore's documentary on the health care system, focusing a lot on the ailments sustained by 9/11 first response rescue workers, was a lot more...entertaining. Its hard to use that word as exposés like documentaries are not meant to be entertainment, but I use more in the sense that the film is made watchable from start to finish, which is not the case with Beyond Treason.

I stopped the movie half way through as the material they were presenting just became very repetitive and not presented in any new interesting way.

This is not to take away from the information presented. The information is rather accurate and credible. The main focus is the Gulf War as that was a large scale representation of our Government involving our military in a war where we used arms hazardous to both our enemies and our own military. But it was not really presented in an interesting way. It was not aided by the fact that the central points are made by scientists who are rather boring and rather stoic.

While the information was definitely credible, there didn't seem like much organization to it. It seemed like it was all over the place, rather feeling like a big mish mash of information thrown at you about how our government covered up the use of toxic substances on our military.

Overall, it gets its point across, rather early in the film for that matter, but it was produced very poorly making it very difficult to watch from start to finish.
