Excerpts from a review on The Evangelical Outpost:
In the wrong hands, a rebuttal film like this could have easily turned into a knee-jerk defense of George Bush. But while Morris and company defend the President when they think it’s warranted, their primary concern is pointing out the many ways in which Moore misled viewers of his "documentary." Their task is, of course, made easier by Moore’s slovenly filmmaking.
For example, two of the strongest points in the film are when HYPE focuses on an Oregon State Police officer and a disabled war veteran, both of whom were included in F911 but who were never interviewed by Moore. Video footage, apparently obtained through news or other sources, was used by in F911 without their permission. The interview by the young war vet, his body broken but his pride unbowed, is particularly moving. He not only contradicts Moore’s claim that wounded soldiers are not being taken care of by the government but he expresses his fury at being used against a cause he believes in. ...
Unfortunately, HYPE won’t reach the vast audiences that saw Moore’s work of propaganda. Many will never hear about it while others will simply refuse to entertain a dissenting opinion. But at least now when a defender of F911 praises Moore’s movie I’ll ask them if they’ve seen the rebuttal by Morris. If they’ve drunk the poison, they should at least have sampled the antidote.
