The Film Critic Review — Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

Filmmaker Robert Greenwald takes aim at the corporate giant that’s come to symbolize big business in America Wal-Mart blasting the box store Goliath for allegedly paying substandard wages, skimping on employee benefits and gutting communities. This hard-hitting, emotional documentary profiles the struggle of everyday folks from around the country who’ve committed themselves to fighting the mega-retailer.

When I watch a movie like this I like to hear both sides. You will only hear one side in this one. I can tell you alone of the Walton Family charitable contributions is reason enough not to like them. Apparently there has been a lot of crime in Wal-Mart parking lots. They have security cameras everywhere but only pay attention to what is going on inside the store. Customers and ex-employees said they really don’t care what happens to the customer once they leave.
