Washington Post
Something far more consequential looms in the wings. And that renders The Hunting of the President the feel of a sideshow Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
In a misguided attempt to break up the monotonous flow of talking heads, the filmmakers have inserted oddly chosen clips from newsreels and public-domain features, meant to illustrate abstract concepts (like eavesdropping or government) while generating some low-level laughs. Full Review
David Edelstein
A simple, chronological history, narrated with melancholy gravitas by Morgan Freeman. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Content is engrossing (if so fast-paced that uninformed viewers might easily get lost), but packaging is sometimes questionable. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
It uses numerous hoary techniques -- including tabloid-television-style editing and ominous background music -- that tend to detract from the seriousness of the issues being addressed. Morgan Freeman delivers the portentous narration. Full Review
