If you grab some popcorn and expect to be entertained, No will bore you to death, but if you have any interest in the mechanisms of democracy, marketing, and the ways they intersect, the film won't disappoint you. Just treat it as a quasi-documentary meant to educate, to portray the events Wikipedia-style and nothing more. Expand

For a historical drama about a brutal dictator, this film sure lacked suspense or a sense of the terror that Pinochet was. Maybe that was the essence of the "NO" campaign but it surely was not was the dictatorship represented. If you knewFor a historical drama about a brutal dictator, this film sure lacked suspense or a sense of the terror that Pinochet was. Maybe that was the essence of the "NO" campaign but it surely was not was the dictatorship represented. If you knew nothing about Chile under Pinochet, this film did little to educate you. I was also disappointed in the low key, nonchalant approach Garcia to his character,. Maybe that was accurate but he was so passive as to be unbelievable to me. I did learn something but I felt like I got only the tip of the iceberg. Expand
