Now available on demand, Percy vs. Goliath is a BOATS (Based On A True Story, my friend!) drama about a humble Canadian farmer who never did nothin’ to nobody, but ended up battling a corporate giant alllllll the wayyyyy to the Supreme Court. Christopher Walken plays real-life guy Percy Schmeiser, who refused to be a schmoe in the face of agrochem behemoth Monsanto — and so we’re guaranteed to be on his side, right? Of course. It’s the movie-drama equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel.

‘Percy vs Goliath’ Review: Christopher Walken Takes On Monsanto in Underdog Farmer Drama

Over the course of the past century, Monsanto discovered a way to farm the American farmer by developing, patenting and supplying genetically modified seeds. Instead of getting its hands dirty in the fields, the company cultivates its yield directly from the land workers, who have virtually no choice but to buy the agrochemical company’s seeds. For the farmers who do it the old-fashioned way — by collecting seeds from last year’s harvest and planting them the next — they risk not only weaker, bug- and weed-susceptible produce, but also being bullied by Monsanto in court.

The Reason Christopher Walken Doesn’t Prepare for Acting Roles

There are actors that have to rehearse their lines over and over and get into the proper frame of mind, and then there are performers that are simply there when they need to be since they’re all about being in the spur of the moment. Christopher Walken has been a guy that has for a long time operated under the idea that he’s a performer, not an actor, and has been pretty candid about it since he’s not of the mind that he’s simply not capable of becoming someone else, as he’s said in the past. He has a great deal of respect for those that can, but he’s never considered himself to be one of those that can get into the headspace of someone else in order to become a different character. When you watch his movies it’s a little bit obvious but at the same time, he’s such a great performer that it doesn’t really matter, especially given that he’s starred in movies that make great use of his personality and he’s been able to adjust his act just enough to take on whatever role he’s been cast in. It’s kind of hard to complain about Walken’s role in a movie unless it’s insanely ridiculous, and even then it’s hard since he’s such a great addition to a lot of movies.

Why Christopher Walken Never Prepares For An Acting Role

Christopher Walken has been in the acting biz for decades, and while he has taken on a range of wildly different roles — such as Cpl. Nikanor Chevotarevich in the war drama The Deer Hunter, Wilbur Turnblad in Hairspray, the Hessian "Headless" Horseman in Sleepy Hollow, and the corrupt businessman Max Shreck in Batman Returns — it's safe to say that each of these characters, different as their motivations may be, all emanate Walken's very unique, quirky energy. The strange, talented combination that Walken brings to the table is why people love him so much, and to put it simply — Walken is iconic, and there's no better way to explain him.

‘Percy Vs. Goliath’ Trailer: Christopher Walken, Zach Braff, & Christina Ricci Take On A Corporate Farming Superpower

The way we farm has changed significantly from the idea that has been planted (no pun intended) in our minds. More often than not, the soil, seeds, and plants are as much a technological invention as any machine, and that comes with all sorts of intellectual property rights and other legal nonsense we don’t want to think about when it comes to food. But those court battles matter, as seen in the trailer for Percy Vs. Goliath, about one farmer’s fight against the corporate giant Monsanto.
