McDonalds doesn't put a real effort to make sure people are awake of what is in their food. However, they don't force the food down people's throats! People are ultimately responsible for their own health. Spurlock researches health and obesity in young people. Inspirations, such as Ronald McDonald, gives advantage from persuading children into coming to McDonalds, by giving away free toys and advertising himself. The more adverts, posters and magazines McDonalds put on the TV the more people are going to know about it. He has turned out to be terrifically popular, some children cannot recognize Jesus, but do know Ronald McDonald! Continuously, eating he becomes exhausted and after eating three meals a day exclusively from McDonalds he became addicted to the food, got depressed, and his heart and liver suffered.

But why did we want to see him eating for 45 minutes? So only 2 or 3 minutes of him eating was filmed. Conversely, cartoons were used in the film and had an immense influence. It enhances the narration and makes it exciting because the text on its own is not eye catching. Cartoon people eating food was shown. A lot of the time clowns were used again and again. There was a miniature clown smoking which could disturb the audience. Supersize me was filmed in public areas, that's why the children's faces were obscured. It makes the audience think that they are ignorant of the identity of the person. Camera effects also have and huge impact. Close-ups and zoom-ins were used where the camera man focuses on one sickening scene which was when Morgan Spurlock his eating a burger and then does a big pile of sick outside the car window. That was GROSS! Overall, in making this film Spurlock succeeded in grabbing the audience attention by using a range of film techniques and constantly entertaining the audience throughout the film. It included fabulous facts. Some of you may dismiss this film as you are over exaggerating. Supersize me will absolutely make you question your fast food eating. Hopefully, next time you cue up for a happy meal or a Big Mac think twice before munching it! So what happened to Morgan Spurlock at the end then? Well, grab some popcorn and watch the movie. Thank you for reading my review! ...read more.
