This movie did not live up to the criticisms thrown at it by the media.
From other reviews I expected a “Michael Moore” type of documentary; one that had a few more shenanigans’s and staged events. The trailers portrayed the film as such with Stein in a school boy’s outfit writing “do not question authority” on a chalkboard. Honestly, I was a little concerned about how the movie would portray people of faith.
However, the trailers turned out to be more sensationalistic than the movie.
Expelled is a documentary where Stein interviews scholars on various planes of the human origin’s discussion crystal. Unlike Moore’s films, where he uses hand-picked stooges to support his point, almost everyone interviewed in this film have earned Phd’s. It just so happens they disagree about evolutionary theory and the question of origins. (more…)
