If Morgan Spurlock has learned anything from over 30 years of movie-watching, it’s that if the world needs saving, it’s best done by one lone man willing to face danger head on to take it down, action hero style. So, with no military experience, knowledge or expertise, he sets off to do what the CIA, FBI and countless bounty hunters have failed to do: find the world’s most wanted man. Before he finds Osama bin Laden though, he first needs to learn where he came from, what makes him tick, and most importantly, what exactly created bin Laden to begin with.
Spurlock is at it again, with an initially comic take on the search for bin Laden. As the documentary develops, you learn how people in Muslim countries really feel about the US, the affect the "War on Terror" is having not only on the countries we're in, but the people.
If you're not afraid to take a poignant look at our government and Muslims around the world, this film is for you. Spurlock takes you on a trip around the world, which all begins with the question, "What kind of world am I bringing my kids into?" This journey begins in the US and takes us to many of the Muslim worlds most infamous countries.
Refreshingly, not a propaganda film. It's a real look and perspective, based on real concerns, dealing with real people.
