Strong, entertaining portrait of a hard-to-pin-down online phenomenon.

Village Voice
Former "Frontline" producer Brian Knappenberger's fascinating, incisive social history of the online network known as Anonymous.

A cumulative feeling of urgency and you-are-there world-beating are key to the picture's seductive appeal, though lack of informed dissenting opinions reps an unfortunate editorial choice.

The film is most illuminating in showing how democratic practice can still find a new voice and innovative means with each generation. The fascinating efforts of Anonymous can be messy, but so are many freedoms when asserted so boldly.
70
As a tale of digital power-tripping both exhilarating and terrifying, We Are Legion stands as a useful 21st century narrative.

Slant Magazine
The doc's straightforward and chronological structure is its own worst enemy.
