Editorial Reviews

Morgan Spurlock, who hilariously Super Size-ed himself to take down the American fast-food diet, sets his sights on the country s biggest enemy in similarly comic fashion. Armed only with a hasty round of survival training, a camera, and his trademark moustache, Spurlock searches the Middle East s mosques, malls, schools, and caves for public enemy #1. From Saudi Arabia to Pakistan to Israel, he interviews ordinary people and experts on all sides of the Middle East conflict, with results that are both funny and thought-provoking.

Morgan takes you places (the Middle East, N. Africa, Afghanistan) that most U.S. citizens would be afraid visit. He talks to common workers, college students, intellectuals, diplomats, U.S. soldiers, and the extremely wealthy. He gets invited to several of their homes. Just seeing how people live, what they think of us, what they want for their future, that would make a good film because these people will surprise you. It's also telling who rebuffs him, and it makes you shake your head both at his naive persistence and their attitudes. Morgan is very funny. He gets caught in some difficult, dangerous and absurd situations, and shows us something we didn't know about ourselves and others.

I don't usually like to watch a film twice, but I would see this one again in a heartbeat.

I thought this documentary was pretty good as I like this kinda stuff anyway. The thing that I found most interesting was the fact that almost all the Muslim people and Palestinians and Egyptians were very friendly towards Spurlock (some even inviting him to eat with them) while when trying to talk to the Jews, they were very beligerent and even acting on the brink of violence towards him. I am not an anti-Semite, it just makes me rethink my opinions on who are the actual instigators in the long running conflict between Isreal and Palestine. So even though a lot of Middle Easterners stated that they hate America, their hatred is towards the American government (Good riddance, Bush!!) and not towards the American people. At least Obama is trying to act more civilized torward them. The moral of the story seems to be "Don't judge a whole race or religion by the actions of a handful of kooks!"

Morgan Spurlock takes a wild ride through several Middle Eastern countries in a somewhat comedic attempt to find OBL, encountering people with varying points of view on terrorism, OBL's whereabouts, American foreign policy, and other issues of interest. Despite the funny video game elements and the crazy questions, there is a (mostly) thoughtful and serious undertone to all of this.

The facts are these: OBL has not been found, Al Qaeda is still strong and probably growing, the war on terror is not working, and current policies are not effective. Sowing more discord throughout an already troubled region is not going to help any of us now or in the long run.

This is not as strong as some of Spurlock's previous work, but it is worth a look for its relevant subject matter.

Oh Morgan Spurlock, what a great film maker. This movie was pretty good, in that it could have only used a bit more of the title in the film itself. While it did turn into more of a 'understanding of radical islam,' it still was very interesting. I think my favorite part is where he talks to a mosque preacher in Saudi who was railing against christianity and the USA; some very interesting thoughts there...Well, I definitley recommend this film to anyone who wants an educational and entertaining view of the middle east.

Forget about Carmen Sandiego. What we really want to know is where in the world is Osama bin Laden? That's what Morgan Spurlock, the documentarian who brought us "Super Size Me," is determined to find out - and he's gone and made a whole movie on the subject. He wonders why, all these years after 9/11, the man who perpetrated that atrocity has yet to be found and brought to justice - even with a $25 million reward hanging over his head. So if the CIA and the FBI can't locate him, perhaps Spurlock himself can. And with a baby of his own on the way, Spurlock has a new-found reason for wanting the world to be a peaceful place. So off he goes on a tongue-in-cheek - but, at the same time, deadly serious - tour through some of the most dangerous places on Earth in search of the Most Wanted Man in the universe.

So, after getting his inoculations, a little defense and survival training, some language lessons and tips on fashion, Spurlock is off and running on his journey.

He makes stops in Egypt, Morocco, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and, finally, Pakistan (where most experts believe bin Laden is hiding out, if, indeed, he's alive at all) and, in each of those places, he discovers that people are just people, regardless of their religious and sectarian differences, and that the vast majority of them want pretty much the same thing: to earn a decent living, to provide for their families, and to see their children grow up in a world where people are free to live at peace with one another.

Not that he doesn't encounter individuals who express support for bin Laden and al Queda and sympathize with their causes - just that such people appear to be in the minority, even in that part of the world.

Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden? is another film by the highly creative and rather brave Morgan Spurlock. Although the film has its flaws, it makes some extremely good points about human nature and how people who seem to be so different from us are actually much more similar to us than we may have thought. The cinematography works very well throughout the film. These cameramen did an excellent job; they shot over 800 hours of footage in order to make this film! (Now that's an editing job!) Morgan doesn't really need to act much in this movie; he's on a quasi-serious mission to find Osama Bin Laden. I think he knew from the start that he was making a film about people we may fear when we don't need to fear them; I doubt that he was actually expecting Bin Laden to come jumping out of a cave somewhere and say, "OK, Morgan, here I am! I surrender!"

We first see Morgan preparing for his trip. He gets more injections than I could count; and he takes some training exercises to be able to protect himself against grenade bombs, would-be assassins and more. He also has to leave his pregnant wife behind him but he promises her that he'll be back in time for their baby to be born.

Once Morgan gets where he's going, he asks people questions. In fact, he asks a lot of questions. We get fascinating interviews with people on the street and there are more interviews with some other people who were kind enough to let Morgan Spurlock into their homes. Morgan frequently, if not always, asks them their opinion of America, Israel, Osama Bin Laden and more. We often see people saying that they have nothing against the American people; but wow, how they hate the American government.
