Critic Reviews

  1. Heartening, and yet, a year after being filmed, unintentionally aggravating.
  2. 30
    There are fascinating moments... but these are overshadowed by an endless stream of sound bites and pep talks to volunteers.
  3. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib
    For every engrossing rank-and-file story, there are endless self-congratulatory explanations and podium highlights.
  4. 20
    A well-intentioned but dull, video-ugly documentary if it weren't partly financed by its subject, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); that just makes it a crappy infomercial.
  5. Even when it’s shooting in the swing states, the film never finds drama, focus or any greater purpose other than some dubious horn-blowing about the SEIU being singularly responsible for electing President Obama.
  6. 10
    The result is, more than anything else, a slickly produced 76-minute commercial for the union; to call it a documentary is to stretch the term almost beyond meaning.
