Description

Executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan, The Game Changers follows James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter — whose world is turned upside down when he discovers a group of world-renowned athletes and scientists who prove that everything he had been taught about protein was a lie. Directed by Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos, The Game Changers mixes real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph. The film features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet — and it’s backed by them too — with additional EPs including Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic, and Chris Paul. Wilks’ journey exposes outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance, but the health of the entire global population.

  • I was amazed

    It really brought it home to me how bad my diet was despite being careful on what I ate and didn’t. I have switched to Vegan following this movie and it was the second one on the topic that I watched, the first being ‘What the weight’ on Netflix. I am very happy being Vegan and have a lot more energy now than when I was a meat eater.

    I actually rented this movie and was so impressed that when it was finished I promptly bought it. Life changing stuff it’s a pity most folk will ignore it.
  • Cherry picked nonsense

    There is no doubt we need to eat less meat, eat mor veg and that our agricultural systems need a big overhaul but this ‘documentary’ is propaganda, full of inaccuracies and cherry picked data. We need objective, thoughtful docs on this subject. Go read the fact checking pieces all over the internet. The bit where they basically try to convince the audience that going plant based will make your erections stronger is the funniest piece of clap trap I’ve ever seen passed off as science. Wrong, wrong, W R O N G
  • Exceptional!

    As a recently qualified MSc Nutritionist, I would say that this film is pretty much 100% accurate. Sure, thing are missing from it such as a description / breakdown of alkaline foods and their importance to the body but all in all a very easy to understand, inspiring documentary. With today's farming methods of such cruelty along with growth hormones, antibiotics, steroids etc it's pretty clear to see why so many pwople are developing cancers including colon, breast and prostate - all linked to meat and diary. At the end of the day, it's your decision in what you eat - whther your body is a temple - a work of art or an ugly graveyard full of dead animals however, it's not your right to allow for the harm to the environment caused by unethical farming or increible cruelty to all things living. I just wish that i'd seen this before I spent two full years of my life studying and studying and studying for my MSc. Recommended and inspiring.

    I absolutely loved this documentary! It is very well structured/filmed. The information was clearly laid out. I really enjoyed the interviews with all those very interesting, inspirational and different individuals. After watching the documentary I feel very fired up and eager to make more efforts to eat more vegan and vegetarian meals!
  • Great movie!

    Very interesting and worth the watch! Technical data here and there, similar to What The Health. But also available for free on Netflix!

    The film is informative in a very accessible way. Thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that it is the precursor to many more like it.
  • Most important documentary ever made

    The science is indisputable and the stories are heartwarming. Incredible that the most healthy and nutricious ‘diet’ is also the most ethical and environmentally friendly. Nature is amazing! Those who give this 1 star are hilarious (worth reading for a giggle if you’re bored).
