For a film about the benefits of natural food and raw milk, there is ironically nothing organic about Farmageddon.
Rabble-rousing agitprop, asserting the consumer's right to have access to healthful food, whether it comes from the farm stand or the supermarket.
| Original Score: 5/10
The one-sidedness of "Farmageddon'' isn't just an artistic failing. It's an argumentative failing, too.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The documentary about government interference with small farmers is repetitious and lacks entertainment value.
| Original Score: C
"Farmageddon" isn't memorable cinema...
[It's] a must-see for organic food zealots. For those who aren't, but are still curious about food and farming issues, rent "Food, Inc." instead.
| Original Score: 2/4
A worthy addition to the growing annals of movies and books advocating for sustainable farming methods.
| Original Score: 3/4
Canty is hardly an ignorant Jenny McCarthy-style alarmist. Rather, she's a concerned citizen asking questions about why federal and state food regulators are less interested in science than Texas Republicans.
Kristin Canty's Farmageddon is a plucky, grassroots, urban mulch pile of info-tainment
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Racks up damning anecdotal evidence without substantially altering the discussion.
A movie whose claims, if accurate, should give us all food for thought.
| Original Score: 3/5
A lesser effort in the burgeoning canon, it's still effective in its goals: illuminating how denigrated and dangerous our food supply is.
An eye-popping wake-up call revealing how the USDA and FDA have increasingly waged war on America's small farmers even when they can prove they are contributing healthful products to our food supply.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
