Storyline

Shockingly relevant to today, the film probes the use of animals as entertainment, as pets, for food, for scientific and military research. Stuffed with footage never before shown, the film is laced with deliciously ironic extracts of government films and newsreels. The makers had unprecedented access, to Roger Ulrich for example, a noted psychologist whose career was built on experimenting on primates until his life took an astonishing turn...

Just as bad as PeTA's attempt on compairing Lab and Farm Animals to Holocaust victims!
15 June 2003 | by (Sao Paulo, Brasil) – See all my reviews

One day, back at High School, on an excange trip, some vegan Animal Rights hippies were showing us some films in class, trying to brainwash us, the students, and the teachers in to becoming vegans and animal rights activist.

Sure, I love animals and I support Animal Well Fare, but Animal Rights is not a glamorous nor good thing. The people whom did this documentary portray scientists whom research and test on rodents to find cures for diseases or try new medicines (To help BOTH people and animals) as being psychotic and taking pleasure out of killing, which is NOT true most times! In fact, I think the Animal Rights organizations are more cruel than the scientists and farmers.

Besides, most people in the world do not take pleasure out of killing animals and letting them rot. Most who do, are either poachers or psycho/sociopaths.
