Trivia

Many of the scenes were shot in the Natural History Building on the University of Illinois campus. The building was available as it had recently been deemed structurally unsound (and would later undergo an eighty-three million dollar renovation). The metal pillars in the hallways were actual support beams. The lab in which Kunal Nayyar and Anthony Edwards worked, was an evacuated honors class lab for Integrative Biology students. See more »

Review of the Negative Reviews
24 March 2016 | by mcleodjackSee all my reviews

Reviewer discripplemation, who gave it a bad review, says it's full of misinformation and outright lies; however, discripplemation fails to support the allegations with any examples.

Interesting note: discripplemation has only been an IMDb member for 3 weeks and this is his or her ONLY review.

Reviewer Windsun33 has given negative reviews to all the other documentaries that expose food and water corruption such as "GMO OMG," "TAPPED," and "Seeds of Death" while most everyone else has given good ratings to these documentaries.

Reviewer ted_corning gives it a bad review and even uses an old trick wherein he preempts criticism by saying those that don't support GMOs will call the pro-GMO people shills as if that is supposed to make him credible for pointing that out. Well if the shoe fits...

Interesting note: ted_corning has only been a member of IMDb for 3 weeks and has no other reviews.

Another reviewer, kelsokristen, has been an IMDb member of just 1 month and 3 weeks AND has no other reviews.

Does anyone see a pattern here? Yeah, I thought so. It's so damn obvious.

Anyway, enjoy the movie. It's pretty good considering the budget the producers had to work with.

And to answer the stupid question, "Why would talented A-list actors attach themselves to this movie," it is because they understand the dangers of GMOs and want to lend their support to the movement. DUH.

Why does every other advanced country in the world ban or label GMOs if they're not a problem?
