Sicko Movie Review


I watched this movie last night and already want to watch it again! I found it to be a startling eye opener, one that should be seen by everyone. I cried a lot through the movie for the people that died because they were denied their life saving treatments from the insurance companies because for example, cancer treatment was not a "medical necessity". There is even a C-Span clip of a woman who was a Medical Reviewer for Humana admitting that she had probably killed several people for the sake of profit and she just couldn't do it anymore and was compelled to admit her mistakes on television.

Not only that, but Michael Moore sends you to a few different countries where people don't have to worry about whether they can afford their medical treatments or not. Places where medical care and pharmaceutacals are FREE. After watching the movie, I wanted to move to those places. The people were happy and lived longer than us Americans.

I also recommend watching the special features for even more heart wrenching stories and more countries with free healthcare.

please, watch the trailer and go rent or buy this important movie:

I give this movie 10 out of 10, a must see.
