Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film is most illuminating in showing how democratic practice can still find a new voice and innovative means with each generation.
Fresh: A cumulative feeling of urgency and you-are-there world-beating are key to the pic's seductive appeal, though lack of informed dissenting opinions reps an unfortunate editorial choice.
Fresh: Strong, entertaining portrait of a hard-to-pin-down online phenomenon.
Rotten: The doc's straightforward and chronological structure is its own worst enemy.
@Kyles- do you know what they have done? You would NOT call them children or punk kid activist if you know what they have done.
Our founding fathers were revolutionaries and so is this group. It is people like them that shape this country and lead it in the direction that it needs to go in. I highly recommend this eye opening video about these people who not only make a difference in this country but have made a positive impact around the world. Those who speak against them want a static, dying world, without change- change keeps things going.
