OK but clearly company-centric in its tone
Verified purchase
Was pretty interesting and informative in some regards, but largely centered on resentful automaker company execs who blamed government figures and unions for their own failures in management, and most of the opining was from a company point of view where they took little responsibility for their failures. Yes, the UAW contracts were shocking and did in part lead to the companies' downfalls, but the automakers only have themselves to blame over time to agreeing to such outrageous terms. I didn't get a sense of gratitude or responsibility to the taxpayers by the execs from the big three, and instead they gave off a sense of arrogance and entitlement.

This movie matters!! Watch it so you are educated!
Verified purchase
This story, is one that has been told a million times. A company cares about its bottom line instead of its employees, the lifeblood of any organization. Wether it be big banks or the car industry. If we keep putting a company, an industry a product over the value of its employees, its community and this country as a whole, we as the people... will always be the ones that get hurt. Doing the right thing may be hard, but it is not difficult. This movie sheds light on what can and will happen if we don't hold our corporations responsible and make a dramatic shift as a country to understand that a fine, no matter how big the fine is, means people... the people that run these corporations will keep putting people second and profits first.

Half a film. Missing the Ford story.
Verified purchase
The image makes you think it was going to cover Ford exclusively. It did not. I'm ok with coverage of the other 2 companies, however, the film did a HUGE injustice to the viewer and Ford in not covering their actions to make it through the downturn on their own. Their actions throw an evern darker shadow on GM, Chrysler, and the UAW.

Viewers should read 'the way forward'. It's available on amazon.

Extremely biased content
Verified purchase
This documentary had an extreme conservative lean, heavily smearing and misrepresenting the regulators in the Obama administration. I was super disappointed in this film.

Good but one-sided.
Verified purchase
A good documentary. Very informative and easy for a non-financial type to understand but very one-sided. Almost played out as a car company add. Would like to see a similar doc on the UAW and hear their side of the story.
