What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry From moptop to public enemy.
Sam Adams A fascinating human story.
Rebekah Kendal This gripping and entertaining documentary is a must for any Lennon fan or anyone with an interest in political activism and repression, and how it has (and hasn't) evolved.
Annette Bayne According to Ono, this is the documentary Lennon would have most approved of.
Jean Barker Tedious for someone who loves the music, but really couldn't care much about the man.
Stella Papamichael If anything this film proves that song can have more impact than a little toe tapping and tub-thumping.
James Berardinelli The U.S. Versus John Lennon is a nice little documentary that provides a view of recent history for those who didn't live through it, or a nostalgia trip for those who did.
Peter Travers Lennon's spirit, like his music, shines through this movie like a beacon. Powerful stuff.
Tomatometer Politically relevant and shows fascinating archival footage.
