Makes you think!
23 September 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This is a movie in which you debate with yourself, where would you draw the line in search of justice against greedy corporations, if that corporations inflicted on you the kind of damage they did on the characters of this movie. Knowing that it was inspired by actual actions that some corporations have taken, just makes us think even harder on whats going on in our world. The acting is very good, everyone plays their character very well. You just have to feel sympathy for all of the character especially "Doc". I recommend anyone who wants to see a movie which gives you something important to think about to watch this. Very well done. 8 out of 10!
