Oh cool! Israeli pro-war propaganda given a moviephone \"PICK!\" label and a 4 1/2 star rating by critics and 2 1/2 rating by viewers. Nothing suspect about that at all. I guarantee you; this movie sets out to brainwash uneducated nitwits to rally behind Israel while they kill all native Palestinians

This movie sucks. What a complete waste of time. Don't waste your money, most of these scenes are in the trailer and Guess What NO ONE care what happens there. It's just another Cuba. Save your money and watch an actual film.

Interesting perspcetive on Israeli-Palestinian conflict, reflective of our current situation in Afghanistan. It either took courage to participate in this movie or a large salary.

The Gatekeepers is a wonderful movie. For those who are interested in the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is a Must See!

The Gatekeepers has a cold air to it: washed-out colors, tan ominous soundtrack, eerily floating satellite footage… The most chilling aspect, however, is the blunt commentary about the work itself. Full Review

If you need reassurance or grounds for optimism about the Middle East, you will not find it here. What you will find is rare, welcome and almost unbearable clarity. Full Review

The filmmaker doesn't speculate about why these men are talking, but he leaves you with an excellent guess. Full Review

The Israeli journalist Dror Moreh has hit a documentarian's trifecta with The Gatekeepers. It's an exemplary piece of enterprise journalism, a vivid history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and a polemic that's all the more remarkable for the shared experience of the polemicists. Full Review

New York Daily News
A fascinating and informative, if sometimes stodgy, documentary about the most secret wing of Israel's anti-espionage unit. Full Review
