Empire Magazine Australasia

This is a considered film that lacks the immediacy of a blunt message like the more simplistic Super Size Me, or the punchy, smokescreen climax of a film like Syriana to send the audience out feeling enlightened.

It's about empty calories and empty life - ridiculous insistences that all kids see playing time regardless of on-field performance, the absurdity of porn as background noise, that revolution can start in rec rooms and the woozy lure of neon strip malls.

September 24, 2010

Distills a non-fiction book about the influence of fast food on the global cultural landscape into a narrative film that touches on the many of the points and populaces of the book.

San Francisco Examiner

'Fast Food Nation' might have translated into a compelling documentary. Instead, Schlosser's research is used as a springboard into a sluggish fictional narrative that merely hints at the grim reality.

Avril Lavigne even pops up to rail against deforestation. Who knew she could pronounce it?

PopMatters

This was never intended to be a conventional movie, but more like a personal industrial film illustrating the process that brings the corpse of a cow to your dinner table.

Murphy's Movie Reviews

The large cast is uniformly excellent and the film has been designed to stir the pot ... Unfortunately, audiences don't seem to be responding. Global warming is the hot button issue but our food supply and its contamination is just as important.

Though it may well make you vow never to eat a burger again, the film never really holds itself together.

Certainly food for thought then, just a shame the characters aren't as fully-fleshed.

The stories lack shape, and the procession of famous faces detracts from the low-key, realist tone.

This movie has taken a firebrand book and turned it into a whingeing piece of defeatism.
