Yet, despite the inherent lack of suspense in this "bad corporation!" genre... Robert Greenwald's documentary still generates enough jaw-dropping revelations to make it more than just an exercise in confirming anti-globalisation prejudices.

Embora irregular (as seqncias que se focam na China beiram o ridculo, com a dublagem e os apelidos dos entrevistados), o filme de Greenwald estabelece argumentos fortes que levam o espectador a desejar boicotar a empresa-ttulo.

Once again David slays Goliath in a documentary that has no pretense of being objective

It's a bill of indictment, really, more than an objective survey. Greenwald often makes his arguments with a kind of prosecutorial zeal that makes you chary of swallowing it whole.

Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price lacks the cinematic panache to elevate it above the level of agitprop. But its all too relevant dissection of its subject is well worth paying attention to.

...will win few points for art...but its subject matter provides such a wealth of material that subtlety is hardly required, nor even desired.

For all its missteps, the movie powerfully suggests that Wal-Mart is capable of demoralizing a community so thoroughly that it doesn't have the spirit to carry on its life outside the big box.

Wal-Mart says director Robert Greenwald's film is misleading and inaccurate, but it's hard to dispute the personal accounts from former Wal-Mart employees who speak from experience.

Greenwald paints a portrait -- one that has Wal-Mart frantically countering with damage-control plans -- that says the corporate juggernaut is sticking it to all of us.

The documentary compiles a wide array of corporate offenses.
