My adult children and I watched this tonight, expecting something silly and pointless. We were amazed at the courage and insight of the man who actually went to these countries and put himself in harms way to try to understand the people that we all make judgements about without ever knowing them. Of Course!! it is one person's view. Yes! it is couched in humor. But is this not the point? In between such deep interviews with people so close to the actual conflict, he might come off joking or ... But the truth is there for us to see. An eye for an eye, continued conflict, will never resolve any issue. The attack on 9/11 was horrible and backfired on the people who did it, as such horror does. The attack on Iraq (a former American ally) continues to destroy the country and the people who are totally innocent as well as the ones who aren't, most of whom WENT there BECAUSE of the invasion. What is being done for the innocent victims, and those whose despair exacerbates the violence? This movie reminds us that people who have basic needs of safety, food, water, education for their children met, will not be motivated to go to war. (and that they are basically no different from us all : "I want my children to have a safe future".) OH! and we found the cinematography and editing excellent.

If you're George W. lovin', Big Mac chuggin' far-right-winger, why are you even reading this? Click the back button now, and don't waste your time or money.

If, however, you want to see Morgan Spurlock venture into the darkest corners of the Middle East to discover, hey, we're kind of alike in many ways, then you will enjoy this film. Obviously, Morgan did not find Osama. I think it's unfortunate that this was the theme of the movie, because really, finding Osama was just a pretext. Spurlock wanted to learn more about what makes us the same, and what makes us different. He did both. He went in with no real political agenda, just a feeling that under the skin, we have everything in common. I think he demonstrated this.

While Morgan's wife was pregnant with their first child, Spurlock ventured across the Atlantic from his comfy home in New York. He visited Israel, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and make other Muslim countries. He interviewed students, scholars, extremists, and every day people on the street. While it is amusing to watch him poking his head around corners looking for Osama, it is far more interesting to hear what these people have to say. "If the USA has come to help us, why did they not come with ambulances, but with tanks?" asks one extremist. Spurlock has no answer. Obviously these issues run very deep, but is amazing how alike we all are. One extremist loves WWE wrestling.

Elsewhere, Morgan is taught survival techniques in case he is captured. He watches a bomb squad in Israel detonate a suspicious package. Later, he is surrounded and ordered to leave by an angry mob of Hasidic Jews, who block his exit. It is a lot for the likable filmmaker from New York to deal with, but that is what makes this movie relatable.

Terrible is an understatement for this DVD-movie written/made by another stupid Michael Moore wanna-be. The guy goes to the middle-east to interview Jihadists and Islamists to hear them blame America for the Islamic terrorists' crimes. This is a one man journey to the Arab world and the silly purpose of it is to tell American viewers that Middle-easterners hate America and that war on terror is bogus because a Jihadist says so. Like the Islamic terrorism doesn't exist and therefore it shouldn't be combatted. Anti-Israel feelings can be seen every where. Any how, I give this 73 minute documentary a zero star.

HASH(0xa6511d50) out of 5 stars Funny, Sad, Satirical, Captivating-- A Must See! July 29 2008
By Jeannie G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Morgan takes you places (the Middle East, N. Africa, Afghanistan) that most U.S. citizens would be afraid visit. He talks to common workers, college students, intellectuals, diplomats, U.S. soldiers, and the extremely wealthy. He gets invited to several of their homes. Just seeing how people live, what they think of us, what they want for their future, that would make a good film because these people will surprise you. It's also telling who rebuffs him, and it makes you shake your head both at his naive persistence and their attitudes. Morgan is very funny. He gets caught in some difficult, dangerous and absurd situations, and shows us something we didn't know about ourselves and others.

I don't usually like to watch a film twice, but I would see this one again in a heartbeat.

HASH(0xa6511da4) out of 5 stars Very informative and entertaining... great interviews and great history. May 2 2008
By Mark Dolson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was a great primer on mid-east history and terrorism. I will admit that I knew little about the actual history of the region.

For the past several years I have been a huge supporter of the "war on terror" and the policies of the Bush administration. I watch Fox News daily and listen to O'Reilly, Hannity, and Glenn Beck everyday on the radio.

I have no intention of changing my political leanings or favorites any time soon. However, this book opened my eyes to many issues and perspectives that I had never considered.

This book is a "light read" but very informative and engaging.

Thanks Morgan!

HASH(0xa648a1f8) out of 5 stars HMMMMMMM. May 20 2009
By HARDROCKINMOFO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I thought this documentary was pretty good as I like this kinda stuff anyway. The thing that I found most interesting was the fact that almost all the Muslim people and Palestinians and Egyptians were very friendly towards Spurlock (some even inviting him to eat with them) while when trying to talk to the Jews, they were very beligerent and even acting on the brink of violence towards him. I am not an anti-Semite, it just makes me rethink my opinions on who are the actual instigators in the long running conflict between Isreal and Palestine. So even though a lot of Middle Easterners stated that they hate America, their hatred is towards the American government (Good riddance, Bush!!) and not towards the American people. At least Obama is trying to act more civilized torward them. The moral of the story seems to be "Don't judge a whole race or religion by the actions of a handful of kooks!"

HASH(0xa648a5b8) out of 5 stars A GWOT "Must Read" June 9 2008
By G. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Kudos to Morgan Spurlock!

This is a timely, well written, clever approach to where the global war on terrorism came from and is headed unless we change directions in a positive and proactive manner.

The interviews the author collects along his journey are thought-provoking. Spurlock raises serious questions as to why we in America don't hear more from those who would truly like to work with the United States to bring about a peaceful resolution of those challenges we face than we do from those whose mantra has thus far proven a calamity of immense proportions.

A soundly written, well researched, oblique approach to where in the world the Global War on Terrorism is headed unless we seek the answers we may not like to hear, and enact new policies and adopt new attitudes in order to bring this particular global war to a meaningful and honorable end.

The final chapter of this book is the most powerful and the most human. In and of itself it reveals how important good choices and right priorities are in this life.

HASH(0xa648a69c) out of 5 stars A wild yet mostly thoughtful ride Sept. 4 2008
By Viva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Morgan Spurlock takes a wild ride through several Middle Eastern countries in a somewhat comedic attempt to find OBL, encountering people with varying points of view on terrorism, OBL's whereabouts, American foreign policy, and other issues of interest. Despite the funny video game elements and the crazy questions, there is a (mostly) thoughtful and serious undertone to all of this.

The facts are these: OBL has not been found, Al Qaeda is still strong and probably growing, the war on terror is not working, and current policies are not effective. Sowing more discord throughout an already troubled region is not going to help any of us now or in the long run.

This is not as strong as some of Spurlock's previous work, but it is worth a look for its relevant subject matter.
