I wasn't prepared for this
22 April 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a documentary. Well... after about 20 minutes I just walked away. This, to me, is at best some thinly veiled Wal*Mart PR movie.

Could it just be that I am too cynical, or were the statements really that blatant? The way I see it, if one does not pay too much attention, it will appear that Wal*Mart is this benevolent corporation and that the mom and pop stores are all evil. But upon paying close attention, you will pick up on statements such as "...full-time employees..." when talking about health insurance. Well, how many "full-time employees" does Wal*Mart have? Overall, while I think this movie is just some cheap, badly made propaganda piece, it is still worth watching, if you can stomach it. Despite everything, you will nonetheless learn something, it may not change your mind, but it is nonetheless educational.
