Informative, Inspiring
13 February 2018 | by twatt-14954See all my reviews

I am vegetarian and am one of the converted. I did not anticipate this being an overly great film because it was made by a nobody and James Cameron is coming out with a big film about the same topic. Interesting thought though. From The Ground Up came out in December of 2017 but is not getting much love from the "plantbased" community because of the bigger film it appears. Too bad. Because it's good. I was very surprised by how well this movie turned out to be...especially considering this filmmaker made it with a low budget and never made a film before? Cannot tell one bit. Kudos. Filmmaking is a tough gig. In a nutshell, the movie is very informative and inspiring. I think a lot of people who are not vegetarian or vegan will actually like this movie. It does not show a dead animal nor is it as other reviews say "pushy." You can tell someone took great care with this project. I definitely recommend to the converted, the curious, the athlete, the couch potato, and anyone that really gives a damn. You will not be disappointed.
