Quotes:
Himself - U.S. Surgeon General, 2002-2006:Obesity is the terror within. It is destroying our society from within and unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event that you can point out... Where will our soldiers, sailors and airmen come from? Where will our police and firemen come from if the youngsters today are on a trajectory that says that they will be obese?See more »

A serious social Issue, 24 May 2009
Author: imasiwiec from Canada

Before I write a review, I suppose I should let all the readers know that I am an athletic adult that tries to eat a proper diet. The reason why I bring this up, is because my views may be personally biased in favor of eating well.

So on with the review. Killer at large starts by illuminating the issue of obesity by educating us with the history of the matter. The movie then progresses to the groups involved in the obesity issue, them being as such; the individual, the farmers/food providers, corporations and then the govt. For each groups Killer at Large does a great job with in depth analysis.

The movie then is completed by showing how this issue of obesity is being counteracted.

My only issues with the film was that it almost seemed like it wanted to veer off into conspiracies at times. I would have also liked to see more information based on the farmers and how corporations ARE helping to solve the obesity epidemic.

Overall, I rather enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to someone interested in the obesity issue.
