[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.

The one-sidedness of "Farmageddon'' isn't just an artistic failing. It's an argumentative failing, too.

"Farmageddon" isn't memorable cinema...

A movie whose claims, if accurate, should give us all food for thought.

Racks up damning anecdotal evidence without substantially altering the discussion.

Audience Reviews for Farmageddon

I enjoyed this film and wish I would recommend it to family and friends. Unfortunately, it appears to endorse too many of the big government interferences that at other times it rejects. We don't need more regulation or different types of regulation; we need government *out* of the way when it comes to what foods we can buy or consume. I agreed with the film's advocacy of raw milk, grass-fed beef, and so forth. I agreed with the portions of the film that said to leave small farmers alone. I didn't agree with the portions that said to regulate big corporations more or to regulate them differently. Don't regulate them at all! Don't regulate small farms either. Get government out of the way, educate the consumers, and let the consumers choose with their wallets what they want.

Just not quite as good as Food Inc. It even has some of the same interviewees. The quality of the film production is lower, but it is quite informative. A good watch for anyone that is into these type of documentaries.
