In particular, the jolt at the end, that abortions will be allowed up to 24 weeks is misleading and where the propaganda machine set its wheels in motion.

Honestly worth watching at least once .

I think gripping is the best word, and the review IMDb has from a pro critic is absolute hogwash, and sounds like it was written by Planned Parenthood's PR department.

If you like incredibly dumb gore movies that exaggerates and doesn't give a damn about reality and who's soul purpose is sensationalism and shock value, you will definitely find this oddity entertaining.

I went to see the movie and can honestly say that the acting was fine and the story gripping, compelling, possibly life changing.

excellent and engrossing .

Knowing that, this story becomes very compelling and convicting.

Amazing movie, can be very intense .

Unplanned is a compelling look inside the world of abortion clinics.

Terrible pro-life propaganda .

This movie also created a main character who was complex Christian who truly grappled with many of these intense emotions.

This movie was trying to be objective and the only ones that hated it and mark it as propaganda are the pro choicers, it only shows the truth.

This movie uses a terrible story line and fake gore in order to spur on pro-life propaganda.

UNEXPECTED .

This movie is inspiring and I highly recommend it.

Too much boring conversation and annoying speech from the narrator!

And Abby's supervisor at Planned Parenthood was one of those cliche corporate bad guys you'd see in a bad made-for-TV movie where her company is trying to sue Santa or something ridiculous, she even had a line that's in the trailer, something along the lines of "You are breed to be a perfect specimen of corporate policy" - or something equally ridiculous.

I didn't enjoy this as much as 'Gosnell', if one can consider watching movies about infanticide 'enjoyable'.

Propaganda .

This is christian anti-abortion propaganda, thinly veiled as a feature movie.

If anything it is too high because many reviewers voted high just because they agreed with the politics of the propaganda.

Anyway the film, it's harrowing but worth watching if you can get past seeing a dead fetus and an ultrasound of an abortion.

It was just unexpected.

Like "God's Not Dead" and other films like it, the propaganda element is too strong.

Given that this movie is based on true life events makes it that much more intense.

Nothing but scaremongering, pro-life propaganda, and very medically inaccurate.

Definitely worth watching .

It tells the truth about PP instead of the propaganda they spout.

Acting was dull, especially regarding Abby's husband in the film, dude can't emote to save his life and he ruined several emotional scenes due to this.

Typical anti-choice propaganda and bad acting on top of it.

Compelling and deeply moving, dare i say the most offensive film I've ever seen, Every one should watch this, so very brave to all involved especially the real life characters it portrayed.

If the sight of blood bothers you, you would find the film intense.

The movie opens pretty much at a gripping moment.

It is well done and tells a compelling story of one woman's life and her experiences.

' Voice over which explains the things we are currently watching adds to the sense that the film maker's are more interested in controlling the audience and their perceptions that they are in creating an engaging work of artistic intent.

propaganda .

Gripping.

Propaganda is information that is not impartial and used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or using loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented.

Gripping and Heartbreaking .

Worth Watching .

That being said, I covered my eyes during certain scenes and I'm glad I did because it was too intense for me.

Judging the story is probably the most subject to the effects of bias, but I found it to be a courageous story, but one that dragged in spots.

PS: Ignore the reviewers calling this "propaganda".

Very Compelling .

Anyone who's already Pro-Choice probably rolled their eyes when they saw the trailer and wrote it off as propaganda.

Definitely worth watching it if you care about life.

Intense, honest, true...

Abby's story is both moving, emotional, and worth the watch.

Abby Hoffman's story is compelling, beautiful and brave and should be required viewing for post-modern civic literacy.

Stunning!!.

Study propaganda?

Stunning film .

Anti-abortion propaganda .

The uterus is empty.

Definitely Worth Watching .

I expected a much more violent movie, but it was an exciting and interesting film.

I found the Mission Impossible films with Tom Cruise to be a little more intense and frightening that what I saw in Unplanned.

It is worth the watch for anyone on either side of the fence because she takes you through that ride; it's a ride of curiosity and discovery.

The film was gripping, sad, and at times, you wonder just how on earth poor Abby could be so naive.

Propaganda .

and lastly, not surprisingly, the far left anti-life wing has weaponized their review posse to drive down real reviews by calling the film propaganda and giving it a 1.

I saw that this movie was available for download so I came to IMDB to read reviews and see if it was worth watching.

Christian Propaganda .

Propaganda .

This film is full of proven lies and is designed as propaganda.

This film is full of proven lies, designed as an anti-abortion propaganda and should be avoided.

This gripping movie is very impactful to viewers and brings this reality into light.

Anti-choice propaganda .

I went into this movie strongly pro-life and still walked out of the theater changed.

Propaganda at its worst .

I just returned from seeing this powerful and compelling story told from the viewpoint of an abortion industry insider.

Pure propaganda .

The cinematography was bland.

Propaganda.

Biased Propaganda .

Very well done and enjoyable.

This movie is anti-choice propaganda made to fearmonger pregnant people into keeping unwanted pregnancies.

Abby's story is intense and the actress portraying her does a superb job.

Worth Watching .

Unplanned is definitely worth watching.

Engaging, biased and unbiased.

Gripping movie.

The acting was quite engaging, and the story held my interest throughout.

Pro-birth Propaganda .

Having said that, apart from the propaganda machine of pro lifers and their disdain for Planned Parenthood, I thought that the movie told a compelling story of how a woman changed her feelings about abortion.

The screenwriters deserve an award for making a subtle narrative compelling.

Fake religious propaganda wrapped up in a (also fake) pretty actress box .

I left the theater shaken to my core.

This is a movie worth watching and making your own decision.

I found the movie worth watching .

The portrayal of her boss is very one dimensional painting that woman in strokes similar to the worst movie villains we can think of.

A pile of lies disguised as a thinly veiled propaganda .

They are often cheesy and predictable and are poorly acted.

Abby's journey, however, takes an unexpected turn, when her experiences reveal to her that she can help women much more outside of the clinic, than inside, leading her to resign from Planned Parenthood.

Yet Another Christian Propaganda Movie .

It's not even so bad it's good, as it is cheaply imitating better films before it, and as a result it's incredibly dull all around.

This story let's you understand the financial motives behind Planned Parenthood, and then reveals the confusion and heartbreak young ladies go through in making their decision to terminate a life growing inside of them.

The director of the film at some point in his life began to make religious propaganda films.

If a film tells you HOW to think and/ or feel about a subject then first and foremost that said piece is pure propaganda.

Poorly written, terrible acting, ridiculously bad propaganda from your right wing fundamentalist friends who don't believe either in abortion OR funding health care, education, child care, or food for poor people.

Regardless of your thought on the Abortion debate, this movie is worth watching to experience what actually happens and has happened within the walls of Planned Parenthood.

While I understand they wanted to portray the fact that abortionists see themselves as heroic, to actually use Christian music to portray this is confusing and bizarre at best.

A powerful and compelling story.

If you like propaganda, this is for you.

Worth Watching .

I find it very disturbing to hear how many in the information industry such as Google, Twitter, the movie rating agency, and music label companies appear to be trying to limit the exposure of the movie Unplanned to the public by shutting down accounts, labeling the show as propaganda, not allowing musicians to contribute music, or incorrectly assigning a R rating to the movie.

The story is engaging enough that I didn't get bored and dramas aren't my thing.

Once again, The Christian Propaganda Machine rears its head and takes a story, which might have been moving, and turns it into a heavy handed sermon whose only real effect is to make the Christians who watch it feel good about their already held feelings and opinions.

It's a gripping story, brought to the screen by an engaging and not preachy script.

Propaganda is lies, this is not..there are others that have said the same that has worked for PPH.

Not only is this strictly propaganda and not based in reality, the story is contrived, the dialogue is derivative, and the acting is just plain terrible.

Worth watching, I was surprised .

Entire film full of boring conversation of Abby with her client, her colleague and her employer!

A breathtaking look into abortion .

Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman have crafted an engaging adaptation.

It is also gripping, shocking, and surprisingly even-handed in its presentations of what is, by any measure, a grisly procedure.

while catastrophically disjointed and nonsensical, it was quite poorly constructed as a propaganda piece.

This movie is dangerous propaganda clearly written by people that don't exist in a real world.

I'm not sure what is most disappointing about this movie, that it was created and had enough funding to make it to theaters, people actually have watched it in theaters, or that viewers have fallen victim to its blatant propaganda and falsity enough to rate it any more than a single star.

This isn't a real film, it's a painfully dull and lifeless piece of propaganda.

This movie was well acted, gripping and shows the truth about abortion.
