Extremely poor filmmaking. People are literally talking and you hear Bruce Springsteen just drowning them out, therefore conveying nothing. You can't do that dumbass, go back to film school. The ending is the same way, plus the ending doesn't go with the theme of the film at all. Very poor editing as well. And everyone knows Wal Mart sucks, just walking in there at 3 PM on a Sunday will tell you this. So a 100 minute documentary just becomes an extreme overkill. Epic fail.

While I agree with the premise of the film, that Wal-Mart is a corporation that does not care, this documentary doesn't convey the message very well. It has some snippets of information on why Wal-Mart is bad however almost all of it is employee heresay which really, really detracts from the impact. In addition it focuses on nothing good that Wal-Mart does, which further reinforces it's bias and makes it even harder to swallow.

Strong but obvious, hateful, fear-provoking, sob-story propaganda. (My prediction came true in the first 3 minutes: ominous music while showing WalMarts, rustic guitar music while interviewing a "mom and pop" store owner.) And showing a not-to-scale graph for less than a second? Inexcusable deceit. Don't like the pay? Treated badly? Crime in the lot? Get a real job, shop elsewhere. On the other hand, I consider contracts sacred. WalMart should be forcibly held to their promises.
