    An interesting cross between a Frontline exposé and "World's Scariest Weapons Inspections Videos."

    Surprisingly dry and dispassionate.

    A clear, unbiased documentary examining of the UNSCOM debacle would benefit anyone attempting to make sense of the dire situation. This, unfortunately, is not that documentary.

    Isn't very good. Not only has Ritter made his documentary a one-sided one, but he commits the journalistic sin of using himself as the film's main talking head. In other words, he's interviewing himself.

    This movie doesn't necessarily deserve on all the hate that the critics have given yet it also wasn't anything that special either. A documentary that does not generate enough seeming controversy. Expand
