one of those "leave your seat inspired" movies
17 November 2011 | by (West Hollywood) – See all my reviews

First off, how is it that the rating is only 3.4 stars when the majority of votes have been 9-10? Someone isn't doing math correctly...

But regardless, this film doesn't need to be rated. Because it's not about the awesome creative camera angles used, or the emotion-inducing tracklist, or the rawness exposed from start to finish. It's about getting information out to the public...and since the message was conveyed so clearly and chronologically, I think it served its purpose. It was also all of those other things mentioned. So I definitely give it a 10/10. In all seriousness, you need to watch this video.
