By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 1 2015
Format: DVD
Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid) has it all, a loving family, a successful business, and a mistress (Heather Graham). He is an aggressive seed salesman and farmer. His oldest son would rather travel the world and his younger son Dean (Zac Efron) is cynical and doesn't want to be around his father. He wants to race cars and have a good time with his "feral" girlfriend (Maika Monroe).

Henry doesn't always abide by the rules. Dean has anger management issues. Things come to a head as Henry has to choose to make things right or face dire consequences.

The film is an okay drama, that perhaps plays out better in Iowa. The characters nicely evolved in the film, although they didn't grab me. Might make for a drama rental at a low price.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb, sex, porno magazine nudity of a topless woman with a male organ at her mouth. Must be the strong graphic reference mentioned on rating.

The movie illustrates how technology has changed the family farm, not necessarily for the best.

HASH(0x9d5a00e4) out of 5 stars Iowa farm drama resonates with some great preformances May 25 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on
Format: DVD
"At Any Price" (2013 release; 105 min.) brings the story of Henry (played by Dennis Quaid) and his farm family in Iowa. Henry owns a big farm and sells genetically-modified seeds, and is struggling to keep this 4th generation farm going. His oldest son Grant has left the family for adventures abroad (mountain climbing in Argentina) and his youngest son Dean (played by Zac Efron) is a dirt track racer dreaming to break into the big times (ARCA, then NASCAR). Henry is losing customers to a rival, but is unexpectedly getting some help from Dean's girlfriend Cadence (played by Maika Monroe). Henry also has a girlfriend on the side, Meredith (played by Heather Graham), who in turn has her eyes on Dean. Then one day, Henry gets investigated by Liberty, the company from which Henry gets his seeds, for possibly cleaning/re-using the seeds for more than one crop. To tell you more of this plot-heavy movie would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first, the plot at times seens contrived, almost soap-like, but somehow it all works out well as the movie progresses. Of more interest are the performances. Zac Efron continues to try and evolve away from his early Disney days, building on his most recent role in "The Paperboy" (where ho co-starred with Nicole Kidman). I am a huge fan of Heather Graham, but she is under-used, and type-cast, as the sexy siren. Dennis Quaid gets the better of the deal as he gets to show his chops as the tormented and frustrated farmer/dad/lover. But the breakout role is from Maika Monroe, a new-comer for me, as the girlfriend of Dean, I am looking forward to seeing her in future roles! Bottom line: this is an entertaining family farm drama, warts and all. As a complete aside, there was a recent Supreme Court case on this very issue of farmers re-using genetically modified seeds for a second or third crop without paying the seeds manufacturers (the farmer lost the case).

This movie showed up unannounced in the art-house theatre here in Cincinnati on a single screen and when I went to see it this weekend, I got a private showing, literally, as I was the only person in the theatre. I figure this won't play long here, but glad I saw it. If you have a chance to see "At Any Price", be it in the theatre or on DVD, go for it!

HASH(0x9d59dabc) out of 5 stars "A POWERFUL, DYNAMIC FAMILY DRAMA!" April 26 2013
By Author/Reviewer Geri Ahearn - Published on
Format: DVD
A rebellious, tough teenager played by Efron, would prefer to race cars anytime, rather than being responsible enough to take over the family farming business. However, his father, played by Dennis Quaid, has an entirely different opinion as he worries about the weak economy and changing farming climate. Acting Performance was good, and the story grabs your attention, with a thought-provoking ending. The theme of this movie is based on the economic crisis, and how it affects the American dream. The story also reflects that business comes before pleasure, especially in today's world. The drama becomes intense with an impressive ending, which makes you think about how serious the economic crisis can be in our lives. This movie makes you think about what happened to the land of opportunity, a once promised land, and the cost of the American dream. Engaging, moving, entertaining. Highly recommended!

HASH(0x9d7ab1bc) out of 5 stars Not Worth Any Price Sept. 16 2013
By Little ol me - Published on
Run as far as you can from this terrible movie! Not only is the acting by Dennis Quaid one of his worst performances, but the story is severely lacking in all areas! The writers decided to throw everything and the kitchen sink into this one. Farming, sex, adultery, murder, car racing, mountain climbing, guns, robbery, alcohol, suicide, F-bombs, kidnapping/missing person, death, fist fighting.......

Spoilers: I have been around farmers my whole life and they certainly do not behave they way this movie portrays them. Yes, they do sit in air conditioned, GPS guided equipment. No, they do not commit murder in corn fields and toss the body into their well (water is precious you know). Yes, GMO seeds are highly regulated and watched by seed goons who WILL come after you. No, farmers are not going to have an adulterous affair out in the middle of the day in public. No gun blasted robbery would go unnoticed and never investigated (sort of like the murder above). Sex in a corn silo is unsafe and should probably not be attempted (with protection or otherwise). Yes, seed cleaners have all been put out of business. No, farmers do not drive around in gold Chevy Impalas!

For such a "star studded" cast, this movie falls short by miles. It is slow, boring, long, drawn out, and just plain not entertaining. There is no back story to any of it. Why is the oldest son leaving the farm to go climb Mt Everest or whatever mountain it is he climbs? Why does the other son freak out while racing? It's his life dream and he's good at it. He has never shown fear, winning every race he has ever been in, never letting anyone get the best of him, until major race day and he chokes? Who is this woman we see Dennis Quaid having sex with? Where did she come from? What is her back story? Why is she even relevant to the story? Why does she then have sex with his son? How does a car load of kids take a 9mm, shoot a store window out, setting off an alarm in the process, steal an engine part, hooting and hollering the entire time, speed off noisily, and never see a police car ever? Why does a missing person/murder never get investigated?

I could go on and on about the inaccuracies and absurdities of this movie, but I will just leave you with this warning: it's not a good movie plain and simple.

HASH(0x9d9da7e0) out of 5 stars Cinematic greed, bad taste and an insult to the nation at any price and NO, I will not give more stars, I wish I could give 0! Dec 14 2013
By Hui Shen ben Israel - Published on
Format: DVD
AT ANY PRICE (2013, 105 minutes) is the revolting tale of greedy Iowa seed vendor and farmer Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid)--a man with a nasty past, and a rotten presence to say the least. To describe him a bit better, I will use the term "oily, stinking weasel". His worthless younger son (Zac Efron, if you can believe it) will disgust the viewer even more. This is like an insane Hitchcock "wannabe" film.

Essentially, this is the story of one bad apple out of a driven group of businessmen--farm seed vendors--set near Decatur, Iowa (it was filmed in DeKalb, Illinois and for some reason I found even that to be a red flag). When the seed company from which Henry Whipple bought his seed gets a tip-off about certain contractual violations, things spin out of control. The entire Whipple family goes nuts (not too far to go, for them). It ends in murder. Frankly, I was deeply offended that this film was even conceived, let alone that it was made.

It is an ugly, graphic, stupid and deeply ignorant condemnation of the people of the American heartland--a place and a people who live mere hours from me. A land where I was born and raised. Certain scenes were shot at locations where I have been many times. So this film, as a 'morality play', was simply "hate America" all the way. Cinematically, the acting was top-grade, I suppose; but I have to ask, to what end? If a morality play, how can you show me this ugly, pointless film with no morals in and of itself?

In its effort to show the immorality of Americans in the heartland at any price, it showed its own true, evil, meaningless face. In other words, you could not possibly make a film like this unless you TRIED to make precisely this kind of film. So I have to wonder why the filmmaker hates us so much. And please don't insult our intelligence by saying this is fiction, this is allegory, symbolic, metaphorical. It is a gross insult unlike anything I have ever seen in my long film-watching life.

The entire time I was expecting this film to explode in a different direction. There are "corporate whistle-blowing" films and I usually love that type of film. This film utterly failed to clearly explain what Whipple had done with the exactness the audience needed--most of us are not farmers--and of course it failed to represent the people. Were I a farmer or seed man or any other remotely related worker, I'd have been even more deeply offended and insulted by this.

It made me ask why Quaid and especially Zac Efron would participate in such a thing. I know Quaid to be a good, conscientious man and philanthropist, and my guess is the filmmaking was originally well-intentioned. What little I know about Efron tells me he made every wrong mistake he could have possibly made by being in this movie. For a film to excoriate and ostracize even a small group of families in this way is an insult to the entire nation.

We are not a perfect planet of perfect beings. I am not a right-wing fascist republican and I am not in favor of extreme or illegal censorship. But a film like AT ANY PRICE makes me wonder what kind of person it takes to conceive of and produce a stinking, horrible movie like this. So allow me to quote from a respected fellow amazonian: "I live in this actual filming location just shy of a few miles south. We were greatly anticipating this film as it was in every local paper and the news spread like wildfire. Our own streets were blocked off to show the "Farmer's Co-op" building and the 'happenings' where Quaid met Graham. Where was any redeeming factor involved in this movie's storyline or the making of it? To be truthful, this inaccurate film representation broke my heart personally and the enthusiasm for it from others in our town was certainly dashed. A complete misrepresentation of our gorgeous Midwest and the people of it. Absurdity "At Any Price"."

Thanks, S. Well said.

HASH(0x9d8b2870) out of 5 stars Disturbing....imo Aug. 30 2013

It is two hours and five bucks I will never have back.. There is nothing redeeming about this movie - nothing. It is a story about a farm family with an obnoxious seed selling father who cheats the seed company he works for. The favorite son is long gone from the farm and the one that is left may be cute at first but it won't take long until the inner ugly seeps through. Everyone that is good and decent gets hurt. They literally get away with murder. I never write reviews but was so angry at this movie I wanted to warn others to save them from the same fate our family experienced this evening. All total, eight thumbs down... way way down. Oh, you know how during a horrible movie you think at the end it will all come together - well, this one doesn't. All is well that ends well sums this one up - it didn't even end well. Any other movie choice is bound to be better than this one. imo
