Glad I took the time to watch this
26 July 2009 | by GrammarMattersSee all my reviews

With so much junk filling the TV schedule lately I've had to work hard to weed out the stuff that isn't even worth watching - and there is lots of that.

But this movie is worth your time.

It's nice to see a movie for a change with an alternative political point of view. This movie skewers the right wing fear mongering machine. It highlights how many politicians create a crisis and then make up someone to blame. It's easy to distract the public from the sins of a corrupt government when that government CREATES a crisis and then blames it on the victim.

And this movie illustrates this type of tactic in a very obvious way. Maybe too obvious, but sometimes you have to lay it on a little thick to make your point really obvious.

Oh, and did I mention one of the main stars - Rachelle Lefevre - Wow. Beautiful with big red hair. I can't wait to see her in her next endeavor.
