The Guardian

By Peter Bradshaw
We call our House of Commons proceedings Punch and Judy: but the climate-change deniers on Fox News are Punch on steroids. It's a chilling and depressing picture.

What Craig Scott Rosebraugh's film lacks in originality, it makes up for in comprehensiveness.

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
What’s fresh here is the tone – rude, blunt and bordering on shrill. This is a less in-your-face Michael Moore-style take on this subject.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Frank Scheck
Filled with devastating statistics documenting the devastating effects of climate change on the planet, the film takes particular aim at CEOs, or “greedy lying bastards,” of the oil and gas corporations which are contributing to the crisis.

The New York Times

By Jeannette Catsoulis
Collated for momentum, the film’s many interviews, wide-ranging archival footage and montage of modern ecological disasters form a blunt but carefully positioned instrument. And despite a bit of Michael Moore-style nonsense at the end the tightly edited narrative displays a reach (nine countries) and clarity of composition that hold the attention.

There’s a lot to be angry about. And though Rosebraugh shines a light on plenty of jaw-dropping corruption, it plays out like a shrill rallying cry without catharsis for the already initiated.

San Francisco Chronicle

Watching the film is like being on a jury in which you know the defendant is probably guilty, but alas, there's not enough evidence to convict.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
On the downside, Rosebraugh’s own film is too self-righteous and his attempts to play a humour-challenged, lightweight version of Michael Moore in front of the camera is a misfire. The climate-change deniers are comforting, though obviously wrong. Greedy Lying Bastards is grating, even if it’s right.

Austin Chronicle

Rosebraugh’s arguments are sound and his heart is in the right place, but his execution is self-defeating.

Boston Globe

The film’s zippy graphics are a treat, but its zippy arguments are slipshod.
