THE PLOT THUS FAR
Mobilize is an explosive investigative documentary that explores the potential long-term health effects from cell phone radiation, including brain cancer and infertility. This thought-provoking film examines the most recent scientific research and the harsh challenges politicians face trying to pass precautionary legislation. Featuring interviews with expert researchers, major mobile phone associates and prominent politicians, Mobilize illuminates how the power of money can compromise public health.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Mobilize” is an investigative documentary that takes a look at the long-term effects of cell phone radiation. Taking cues from your mother’s Facebook shares and random hearsay, the documentary assembles a ton of talking heads to talk about how your iPhone might be frying your brain. The pedigree of the interview subjects is outstanding. However, there is no correlation between hard data and what these people are speculating about in the documentary. Toss onto the fact that there are a ton of extreme Left-Wing political types interviewed and you’ve lost half of your audience.
Cell phone radiation has been a back of the brain worry for many people in the modern age. Hell, I’ve been watching video of people supposedly popping corn with a ringing cellphone. But, these phones look like they came from 2000. When you’ve got a Zach Morris phone or something that the gang at Zion would use, then you should worry about faulty tech developments. That being said, we have entered into a new age of blind information being passed off as fact. While I believe that the documentary intends well, I don’t see any hard proof to back up the claims. Give it time and we might see something. “Mobilize” doesn’t convince me of anything.
The DVD comes with no special features. The standard definition transfer is crisp enough. The Dolby track is a supportive surround mix. It’s typical for most documentaries. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
