Having much experience in movie watching and a bit in the world of 'acting,' my hat is off to Tom Mercer for his insight in conveying such a valuable message while entertaining us with a movie like 'Uncivil Liberties.' After viewing the DVD, I was very impressed at how an individual, on his first attempt at a full length movie, could tie it together as well as he did. Though not a Blockbuster like Titanic or Braveheart, the storyline is one that will cause you to ponder our present, the near future and our interlocking relationships, both racial, political and religious with our fellow man. Weaving cleverly a couple of surprising twists in the tapestry. Great choice in casting as well!! Definitely an eye opener for the mainstream couch potatoes and dittoheads.

Uncivil Liberties is quite possibly the best low-budget film I have ever seen. It addresses some of the most pressing political and social issues of our time in a way that is both thought-provoking and entertaining.

If you're looking for Hollywood production values, high-tech special effects, or an easy black and white morality tale, this is not the film for you. But if you want a movie that will get you thinking and talking about important themes, I can highly recommend Uncivil Liberties.

Filmmaker Tom Mercer, along with his dedicated cast and crew, have tackled a tough subject with compassion and intelligence. I thank them for this important contribution to the national dialog on surveillance and freedom.

In the seventh year of the current presidential administration which has eviscerated more aspects of the Bill of Rights and U.S. Constitution than any previous administration in American history, I recently had the opportunity of viewing a new 'documentary' Uncivil Liberties, written and directed by Thomas Mercer. I am pleased to offer my review of the film; however, it is not possible for me to authentically review this work of art or any other pertaining to civil liberties without attaching to it my own addendum of the history of attacks on the well being of its citizens by the United States government...

Uncivil Liberties provides a window into a future we must prevent, a future where the government has total authoritarian control and the people have resorted to their last option. In a system of people we must take note of the message in this film. You will find it, just pay close attention. The frightening reality, that Uncivil Liberties portrays, kept me on edge during the whole film. Uncivil Liberties will inspire debate and discussion in your home. I strongly urge you to get this movie and watch it with friends and family today.
