Luke Goodsell
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.

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.

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

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.

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

Not as hard-hitting and incisive as it could have been but a relatively thoughtful and thought-provoking film nonetheless.

Empire Magazine

A gross and engrossing attempt to humanise a hot-button subject, using a star-sprinkled cast to reveal some unpalatable truths.

If the word 'tasteless' can be applied to a film in the most positive sense, that film is surely the pro-animal activist eco-drama, Fast Food Nation.

It's the performances and Linklater's devotion to them and not just the nation that make this a meal worth eating.
