The movie is a bit slow while getting to know the characters. I really connected with them while learning about their struggle to keep the local farming economy strong. Similar struggles have been fought in the USA. Having grown up in a rural area with farming it was interesting to see rural areas of Taiwan and people farming.

If the WTO controls a countries food source they can control the population. Going as far as determining who lives and dies. I wonder if this was an experiment by the WTO to see how easily they could control the food production of a country or large geographical area. I'm happy to see the farmers and fisherman of Taiwan fighting against a world domination organization like the WTO.

Some of the scenes are a bit disjointed and don't have a natural flow associating one scene with another. English subtitles are large and easy to read in the black bar below the video. Some of the conversation goes quickly and can be difficult to follow with the subtitles. The audio is a little quiet.

Hopefully this film will help wake up more people about the many world domination organizations that include, World Health Organization (WHO), NATO, World Trade Organization (WTO), United Nations (UN), Non Governmental Organizations (NGO), The Bilderberg Group.

CONTENT ADVISORY: English subtitles have occasional profanity including a few uses of sh't, one use of f-word, b'stard. Two children are shown to have died. One from starvation and one fell into a large hole and seen being hoisted out with a small crane.

Jian (the future Rice Bomber) is shown being mistreated and assaulted by fellow soldiers. He wants to shoot one of the soldiers but changes his mind. He is discharged and shown serving time in prison. Reckless and negligent shooting of a firearm out of anger by Nikki at her father but purposely missing him.

Several of the rice bombs really explode in the movie, one throws fire. These explosions could be alarming to people sensitive to loud sharp noises or war veterans. A real bomb squad is in the movie showing the removal of the "bombs." As part of the timeline for the life of the Rice Bomber, the second plane is shown crashing into The World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and one of the buildings is shown collapsing.
