Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret Review

Screen Shot 2015-12-19 at 12.28.57 PM   What sounds like the greatest film about cows conspiring against humans is actually a fascinating documentary that enlightens you about the human corruption our planet has suffered. Led by Kip Andersen, Cowspiracy follows Kip’s journey to uncover this government spanning conspiracy that tries to occult the damage animal agriculture does to our planet. Really well-shot and filmed, with some engaging visuals added in-between scenes, and some really good interviews, Cowspiracy provides the viewer with an eye-opening experience about the horrors of meat. Capturing Andersen’s transformation as he reacts to all this information as we too are presented with the same information, but even though necessary for the film it goes over-the-top at times, same for the added levity. As for the levity which helps ground these facts, its helpful and cool at first, but, as the film goes on and the horrors are divulged the levity begins to serve the same purpose a joke does at the end of an Avengers action sequence where all dramatic tension is deflated, thankfully this is begins to make less appearances towards the end because it does get a tad annoying at times. But, with those negatives mentioned, Cowspiracy is still is a must-watch and a 78 out of 100 in my book of reviews.
