Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 9/11) takes aim at Americ'love affair with guns and violence in this Oscar winning film that "demand attention" (People)! Mixing riveting footage, hilarious animation and candid interviews with everyone from the NR's Charlton Heston to shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, Bowling for Columbine is brilliant.

Customer Reviews

Ask Michael Moore about that.
Kent Wall
From the very beginning, Moore begins to ask the question, "Why is the murder rate in America so much higher than in other countries."
Shawn Vogel
This movie seemed to me to be saying that people in this country miss-use guns (just like they do so many other decent things).
Derek Manson

OK, I had heard so many negative things about this movie that I didn't want to bother with it. Then, my beloved brought it home. We watched it together and I completely flipped! Michael Moore is a film-making genius! His guerilla style is perfectly suited for the subject matter. Who else has even attempted to ask the question "Why so much fear and violence in america?" without finding simplistic, kneejerk answers? Moore takes us to Columbine to not only relive the tragedy, but to talk with the surviving victims. He even takes them to K Mart's HQ to confront the company's policy of selling handgun ammo (the columbine shooters purchased their bullets at the local k mart) with successful results. This is not just some propoganda film about the evils of gun ownership. Moore himself was raised with guns and still carries his NRA membership card. This movie is about Moore's quest to find out why we love to kill each other so much here in the states. Is it poverty? Nope, other countries have worse economic problems without the bloodletting. Is it violent music or video games? Uh-uh, these are endemic throughout the civilized world. Could it be the proliferation of handguns? No, Canada has millions of guns and it's big cities have the murder rates of our small towns! Is it our violent, gun-toting history? Negative, the entire planet has a bloody, violent past. Moore has the audacity to try to get to the bottom of this mess. BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE is not for the squeamish or the political zealot from either right or left. It's for folks who wonder at what we've become. It's for people like me who hate the idea of barracading themselves in their homes for fear of being slaughtered. This fear is also challenged here. Many sacred cow arguments are terminated. Prepare to be angered, saddened, provoked, offended, and oddly entertained as only Michael Moore can do. A must own classic...

Some of the reviews I've been reading of "Bowling for Columbine" remind me of a statement that a Canadian makes about Americans in the film - that we don't think before we react. Obviously, certain people were angered by this film (hopefully everyone was at least once) and for some reason don't like Michael Moore and have written their reviews before letting it all soak in. "Bowling for Columbine" has just that - a lot to soak in. I will not give away parts of this film because it truly has to be witnessed to be believed. I can't believe this even came out to the theatres. I would like to respond to a few things others are saying who obviously don't fully get what is presented in this film. First off, "Bowling for Columbine" IS NOT a comedy. Yes, it has laughs and funny ironies, but it is not a movie you go to for a good happy laughing experience. This is a documentary film with a focus on gun control and gun violence, which also includes segments on racism, the media, and other politics. This is not a movie you just shrug off and giggle at - this movie should not be called "hilarious" because it never comes near it. It is also not for the faint of heart because there is footage of actual shootings, Security camera video from the Columbine High School, and also footage of the second tower of the World Trade Center being attacked. How anyone could call or expect a film with this footage to be a comedy is beyond me. I don't consider myself to be a liberal or conservative, but the facts are the facts and yes some things in this film are a little biased and maybe even over exaggerated, but the people who Moore interviews speak for themselves. Moore isn't "making them look bad", they make theirselves look bad. All I see Moore doing is asking questions...he's not accusing them of anything.Read more ›

Only in a few places does Michael Moore's Academy Award-winning documentary veer too sharply into diatribe. The incomprehensible student shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado formed the impetus for the making of this film, which is filled with unforgettable vignettes, including the following: the bank that offers a big gun to everyone who opens a new account, Charlton Heston turning his back on the photograph of the 6yo girl killed by her 1st grade classmate, the manager of K-Mart agreeing to halt the sale of guns and ammunition, and most disturbing to me, the disclosure that Canadians have more guns per household that we do in the USA, yet they have an infinitesimal rate of murder.

Go figure.

Definitely worth watching and then thinking about for a long time.

I have taken 4 friends to see this movie. I have even seen this movie while I was in Montreal to see what the Canadian reaction would be. I must say, I was embarrassed to be an American after watching this movie. I then thought of all the things I should be doing to make this place a better place to live. In other words, this is a thought provoking movie that is truly provocative.
You will see Charles Heston wring his hands in nervousness after he says, "We don't want any more of that civil rights business going on again", or "the reason America is violent is because of all the mixed ethnicities." What an idiot.
And that is just what Michael Moore does, he shows people and the government in their natural element speaking freely, and shows us how insane they are and sound. From George Bush proclaiming that our number one priority should be defense spending when people all over the country are out of work and children are living in poverty without parent supervision, to the crackpot rednecks who are buying more "guns and ammo" because they want to protect themselves from the "evil doers." It's this candid honesty of Moore's subjects that makes us look inward to how this country gone astray. Then Moore tries to explain this with his amazing short animation movie "A Brief History of the United States of America." Although he simplifies everything, and it is truly brief, it hits home and is certainly eye opening.
Moore tries to explain the question of why America is so violent. Why we are the unique country in the world that kills people with guns on the astronomical level that the United States does. He offers a lot of options to this answer, but ultimately, he leaves the question open for the viewer to search out within him/herself for the answer and make change.
