Storyline

When Morgan Spurlock and his wife find out they are expecting a child in an unsafe world that faces multiple terrorist and environmental threats, Morgan decides to track down the world's most wanted and dangerous terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, undergoes self-defense training, takes all required medical shots, and sets out to travel to Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan amongst others to try and locate the man who has managed to elude the American army for nearly a decade. His fears, generated due to biased media coverage that Muslims and Arabs are hostile, are laid to rest when he does encounter friendly, and quite refreshingly well educated, hospitable, politically matured men and women, who are well aware of America's faulty 'foreign policy', and do not subscribe to Jihad nor to the Taliban nor Osama's terror-tactics. But he does encounter some hostility, quite ironically, in two of America's allies -- Israel and Saudi Arabia -- and it is on the soil of Pakistan -- ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Pretty moderate docu comparing to Moore's movie although it doesn't tell you much things
18 August 2008 | by kentzkySee all my reviews

The movie tells the very actual life (even its not 100% but close enough to than any U.S public media from the past 10 years)of the people who live in the regions where we were told evils came from and the image of U.S and terrorists in their eyes.

The docu itself is moderate on its opinions about U.S foreign policy in the regions as well as the anti-terrorist campaign. You don't expect it tells you what is good or what is bad, but the differences as well as similarities that wildly exist in these cultures.

The movie seems to be one of those kind that try to wake up the ignorants or to introduce the concept of co-existence with differences. Unfortunately, those who would take time to watch the movie or those are able to understand it are not what the movie intended to. Many of them already known the message and the film doesn't go any further than that. And those whom the movie intended for are very likely not able to understand it and feel offended.
