Seifert approaches the subject from the perspective of a concerned father of three youngsters and he comes across as earnest and well-intentioned.

While the movie rarely feels like the definitive, well-honed dissection this critical subject demands, [Seifert's] lighter approach keeps a somewhat arcane topic more easily digestible, dare say entertaining.

[Provides] a gentle, flyover alert to obliviously chowing-down citizens ... without hectoring and with no small amount of charm.

Why anyone would think that home movies of the director and his kids belong in a social-issues doc is a truly WTF question.

A documentary that is by turns exasperating, illuminating, and intentionally infuriating.

Combines the folksy charm of Taggart Siegel's The Real Dirt on Farmer John and the frightening facts of Robert Kenner's Food, Inc.

Starting from a place of ignorance and never going much further, Seifert omits anything that might hurt his obvious anti-GMO thesis.

Eye-opening, compelling and accessible to the laymen.

Recognizing that minds are changed as much through the heart as a litany of facts, GMO OMG manages to provoke important self-reflection in viewers.

This is a David-vs.-Goliath movie, but David's aim is so spotty that Goliath has nothing to fear.

September 13, 2013 Full Review Source:

With the cinematography and its family-centric approach, it takes what could have been a dry subject and broadens its appeal.

In this unsatisfying home movie meets documentary hybrid, filmmaker and father Jeremy Seifert seeks to convey the potential danger of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in our foods and the need for legislation requiring accurate labeling of such.

The real truth is that GMO merely the latest in a long line of one-sided agitprop documentaries. Far from an impartial investigation...Seifert's work is a monotonous censure that, in the absence of conclusive data, exploits fear.

Smart animation and a series of powerfully provocative statistics punctuate the film, and while familiar it is still a subject that needs to be focused on.
