Excellent commentary about our seed reserves and how and why we have lost up to 80% of the varieties in different plant species over the years. The first 80% of the movie is fact filled, informative and easy to listen to. I did not agree with some of the broad generalizations of the later part of the movie. Worth seeing for the first 3/4 or so.

Wow. We humans are off track, and could starve to death if we do not see, and fix it-- soon.

Good, but I didn't think it was the greatest. The best part was that it conveyed a crucially important message, and a warning to us all. Just imagine a world where the vast majority of our food came from a handful of genetic sources, all of them owned by huge corporations. I guess that's when it will be pretty much over for civilization as we know it. The truly scary thing is that we are already perilously close to this reality.

Weaknesses included:
-parts of it were little more than an anti-Monsanto rant.
-some of the contributors were a little more than over-the-top.

Monsanto and all government employees working with them should all go to jail!

Excellent! Every man woman and child should see the documentary. GMO's & pesticides are ruining our planet. Was shocked to see some places in Hawaii residents have to wear gas masks because of the contaminated soil blowing in the wind from test plots. School children are taken to hospitals when pesticide spray drifts to their schools. It's not right our government allowed Monsanto to patent their GMO seeds. Farmers are being sued by Monsanto when they try to use their own seed for replanting. Please watch bonus features and extra scenes,
