Killer at Large (2009)

Only available in Canada, United States

Obesity rates in the United States have skyrocketed over the last twenty years, with no end in sight. As this epidemic of obesity reaches out into even the most remote corners of the globe, only one thing seems clear, the issue is more complex than you could ever imagine.

This documentary exposes the public policies that have been institutionalized to create an infrastructure that forces farmers to over-produce all the wrong kinds of foods for mass consumption. Clearly, America is on the wrong path and drastic action is needed to reverse this pandemic weight gain that is negatively affecting every segment of our population.

My husband convinced me to quit eating fast food when we met over twelve years ago. We watch Super size me, Fast Food Nation, Forks over knives, and all these types of movies and would love to be involved in making more of these! Movies like this educate people and inspire! We have original music we can offer movie makers - please reach out to me! Also I am writing a book about personal responsibility and health. Kudos to this film's makers. Yes it is a bit dated now but lots of great info!

Really nothing new in this so-so documentary. Although it does make some points like that exercise is just one component of health - it really all does start with personal choices. Less processed food and more whole foods.

But there is really no deep dark conspiracy between the government and industry. That the government and industy are very close is just a reflection of organizational and political realities. Very manipulative by the way: the video cuts to President Bush are just silly and reflect the liberal bias that he is a dunce. I would love to see updated documentaries with the current hot dog rib eating Obama.

Additionally, some of the passages look as if they were filmed off the TV.

And can't obesity experts loose a little weight themselves?

Glad I watched it, however. That this information is bubbling up is a very good thing.
