Pretty Enjoyable Effort
20 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This mini-series was an excellent achievement for a Canadian production. I'm relieved that people are less afraid of pointing out and illustrating the disturbing mindset behind a lot of the U.S.'s policies than has been the case in recent years. Most recent films have been pro-fear, pro-war propaganda. I like that it showed dissent among the Americans. The political and corporate morally bereft have their own agenda, while other members of their organizations are more concerned with the truth and doing the right thing. There are some iffy plot points, but i guess they were necessary for the purposes of the story. All in all the film is probably an 8.5/10 but i give it 10 because they have the guts to say what everybody's thinking.
