I am writing the review because I just recommended this film to a friend and had to try to recall what it's about and why I found it compelling and valuable.

This film is a collage of perspectives, or puzzle pieces, that unite to explain the impact of globalization via transnational retail giant Wal-Mart. The main obstacle to putting these pieces together ourselves and understanding the affect of operations like Wal-mart on society is that our knowledge of them is limited: we know that Wal-mart offers products at prices that are among the lowest anywhere; what we do not know, and perhaps have not cared to know, is exactly how Wal-mart manages to do that.

Reviews that attack this film for its production values are off the mark. This film is not a slick production because its objective is to simply show us, like YouTube for example, what people are saying and doing and in this case what happens when lower price is chosen as the sole motive for purchase. We get a glimpse of what happens to producers and suppliers, to middle and small retailers, to Wal-mart employees and even to its customers and the environment.

I was amazed to learn for example of assaults in Wal-mart parking lots and their policy with regard to these incidents. Also, I do not know what it is like to work there and so hearing from actual employees was very insightful. It was also enlightening to hear from some of their competitors, particularly smaller mom and pop operations that had been around for a long time and who have been surprised and learned that competition is healthy, but only when it is able to exist.

Reviews that attack this film for not presenting a balanced perspective are also inaccurate.

Even if you don't buy it, watch this. I don't give it 5 stars only because some of the other reviewers mentioned that some of its production quality isn't the greatest, in addition the ending gets a little corny and pointless. But everything up until the last 15 or so minutes of this movie is quite good. As far as the argument portraying only one side or leaving out the 'good' Wal-Mart does...

1. Let Wal-Mart make their own case, if I'm critiquing Wal-Mart, why should I have to defend them?

2. What 'good'?

If your argument is "These jobs are better than no jobs!" I disagree, Jobs that hold you in poverty are not better than being forced to find another way to make money. Watch this movie!

This movie's astonishing collection of research and reports of different dimensions of the ultimate corporate success in our times, asks some very disturbing questions! If a company comes in to a community, closes its independent competitors and then relocates, is it anything more than an 'Independent' assassin? When a company claims to be green while ignoring government concerns they are leaking poisons into reservoirs, can they continue to claim to be green? When workers in China are interviewed working for slave wages, what is the real cost of low prices?
