DEATH BY CHINA 2.0 opens with Black Friday shoppers storming the malls in search for crazy bargains. When the filmmakers ask customers if they know or care where the products were made, one man exclaims: “If the American people can't provide me with what I need, I gotta get it from China.” While his statement seems callous, lots of Americans are willing to buy Chinese products if it brings savings. In today's unstable economy, every little bit helps. But is it worth it to spend less on a television if that means putting your family member or friend out of a job? Are the savings worth it if they're driving our country into debt and threatening our security? This film examines the political decisions that have brought us to such a dilemma and evaluates companies who've stooped low for high profits. It also looks at our own role as consumers. DEATH BY CHINA 2.0 is an eye-opening documentary that will leave you thinking twice about your next purchase. – E.F.
