New World Order is a disappointing, incoherent conglomerate of footage, mostly that of egomaniac and alleged CIA shill Alex Jones doing his notorious and anti-climactic ranting and raving pertaining to the common belief that there is a sinister and malevolent conspiracy being perpetrated against our world by the global elite to create a centralized one world government. While there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that leaders of various governments are involved in such a plan, this film is not even remotely an effective vehicle to communicate and effectively support such an idea.
What begins with an amateurish analysis of the Kennedy assassination turns to weak and sparse information regarding the 911 Truth movement as communicated by a handful of mostly unknowns. Aside from Jones' laughable "performance", the other activists featured appear to be well-meaning and passionate about their cause and dissemination of their beliefs, albeit in an apparently poorly organized fashion.
Jones, however, steals any value to the cause by pointing at every other vehicle traveling behind him or person walking in his direction accusing them of being Secret Service or some CIA "spook". When he is not being an embarrassment to himself and the cause he "claims" to support with a bullhorn, he's seen followed by his bewildered entourage going here and there polluting each event he takes part in. At one point he is seen arrested in NYC at a 911 rally. What a shame that they didn't keep him in jail.
New World Order does nothing but damage the credibility of a pertinent and intelligent movement to get the word out. It portrays activists as Conspiracy theorists indirectly by featuring footage that is more damning than helpful. Please don't base your opinions on the possible existence of a NWO conspiracy on this film. Do your own research and trust your gut to determine the truth. Don't give this film 10 stars just because you agree with its premise or they will continue to create sub-par ineffective films.
The ending, I thought by the way, was very effective at portraying the despair a lot of us feel about this war on our rights. I applaud the activists in this film for their passion. I hope they will wake up and dump Jones as their leader.
New World Order's intent is confused. What appears to be the director's intent is to make a film about conspiracy theorists. However what emerges is a hodgepodge of puzzle pieces belonging to different puzzles. Essentially, New World Order does not know what it wants to be when it grows up.
