Everybody loves a good David & Goliath story, often doubly so when the story happens to be entirely factual and quite ironic.

You can't help but take a little pleasure in watching jerk lawyers -- and an arrogant mega-corporation, with money and laws and seemingly the judge too on its side -- lose in every way imaginable.

McLibel made me want to boycott McDonald's, turn vegetarian and even punch a clown or two on principle. But most of all, it restored my faith that the power to shape public discourse really rests with the people and not the PR agents.

... (a) portrait of corporate power and intimidation and the draconian British libel laws that turn the presumption of innocence on its head.

McLibel is best when it sticks to Steel and Morris, who never become comfortable on-camera.

An alarming if ultimately inspiring David-and-Goliath parable for today.

Riveting, suspenseful, and a perfect antidote to the too-tricky documentary Super-Size Me.

the big loser is McDonald's, who spends millions on a year-long trial and is crucified in the court of public opinion
