REVIEW: Super Size Me

This is the first of many City Hippy reviews. We aim to review films and books and anything else appropriate. If you have any suggestions for reviews then contact us at:

Super Size Me
Imagine a cross between Mike Moore and a dietician. The result is an explosive experiment in, and expose of, fast food. It certainly convinced us to avoid fast food as if our lives depended on it. Wait a minute...they do!

Morgan Spurlock, winner of the best director award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, takes you on a drive-through documentary that sees him as his own guinea pig. Watch as he tests, under medical supervision, just how healthy fast food is for a human being. He forces himself to eat only fast food and logs the results. Within days the results are terrifying.

Questions we were left asking included:
1) How can something so potentially dangerous in large doses be so unregulated?
2) How does the Fast food industry affect human rights and the environment?

This film is a must-see and gets a City Hippy rating of '5'.

If you feel inspired to buy this film then why not click here
to buy this movie via AMAZON on DVD now. And guess what? If you do buy it via that link then that will help City Hippy grow even bigger and stronger. And that can only be a good thing.

For future reference the City Hippy review ratings are between 1 and 5 with 1 = bad and 5 = good.

Hi thebattler

Yeah amazing really...I guess it all started to change at McDonalds thanks to the McLibel trial, the longest trial in British legal history.

Just goes to prove that activisim founded on people power can work to affect positive change.

Thanks for your comment. Have a nice day.
