Killer at Large
12 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, OK well be prepared to get knocked around while watching this movie. It is relentless with aggressive professionals a saying everything we are doing wrong spouting facts at you and saying that America is, well basically, a bunch of failures. When you are watching this you are lucky enough to view a lot of graphic picture and videos. And when I say a lot, I mean a whole **** lot of graphic pictures and videos. But I guess that is the reason why this movie is put out there. It shows you what is really happening. Oh! and guess who else shows up in this movie. Michael Pollan, the food guru and author. Now if that doesn't prove that this movie's capacity of attack on the food system, what else is.

When you're ready to see what America has changed into or you want to find what is actually happening underneath your skin. Or possibly you want to find what you can do to change yourself. Even if you have no reason to watch this movie, watch the movie. It will open your eyes and it will push you to be a healthier person and a better person in every other category. Seriously get ready though. (it's kinda gross…)
