So bad....is there a minus score?
19 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

When writing a review of this film it seems one should declare their political affiliations. I'm European and have a passing interest in American politics but it's not my country, I don't live there, so in the main I don't really care. But its sometimes fun to talk about.

But I am interested in Obama as a personality. I saw this movie, knowing it was anti Obama but hoping to discover something interesting about the man. At the very least something entertaining, a right wing version of a Michael Moore maybe?

The obvious premise of the film is that Obama Will be very bad for America and Americans, well no surprise there. However most of the reviews say give it a try as its a good film and gives a fair opinion. After seeing the movie for myself I now know that every single one of these people has 1, never seen a journalistic style documentary before, 2, is three years old, 3, a close personal friend of the producers. or 4, All three of the above.

I was hoping at least for an intelligent argument and maybe some insight into Obama. Instead we get interviews with Obama's well removed half brother who just happens to be a racist. "Experts" that set up the narrator to justify his next interview with another "expert." One of which talks into the wrong end of an iPhone. Then we get media segments that are presented completely out of context and so blatantly setting up opposing arguments that you can see them coming a mile off. The argument is so confused that it often puts Obama in a good light.

As a piece of journalism it is utterly pious, un-entertaining and uninformative, what it tells me about Obama I could have got from his own autobiography. The rest is just conspiracy and opinion, most of it so far fetched that I was expecting them to say that Obama is the lizard man from V.

As a piece of political propaganda it also fails, it could have been infinitely more sophisticated. It seems takes exactly the same economic arguments the left use against the right but conveniently removes any suggestion that it is the system that is flawed. Obama has single handedly engineered all of America's problems and only voting for the "other" guy would make any difference. It worries me that there are real life humans in the world that think that things are this simple and easily dealt with. Fortunately America is less and less important on the world stage and they will all soon shoot each other with AR-15's anyway. (yes, that is a joke)

So, back to the movie.

I would hope that it is the ambition of any serious documentary maker to somehow demonstrate a view and make a difference to the world, to inform and educate as well as entertain. 2016 : Obama's America fails on all these levels, it is devoid of any educational value, a succinct or important argument is absent and it fails to entertain even an open minded viewer. It only aims to preach to the converted. I hear there is going to be a sequel, so I guess it's good that someone is at least getting rich from it!

Avoid at all costs! Unless you need another DVD to add to your existing factual movie collection, such as X-Files documentary series 1-10.
