Solid docu about global-warming informs rather than preaches.

For most of the way this is an eye-popping, not blood-curdling, experience.

For a round-the-world trip, it feels a bit like a budget bus tour.

[The directors] know how to craft a sequence (lions and elephants uneasily drinking at the same water hole), have an eye for the telling shot (baboons mincing across a flood plain), and mercifully avoid making the fauna look human.

As a spectacle Disney's Earth is right out of this world.

For adults, Earth misses the mark of riveting storytelling. Earth crams in the dramatic adventures of several species (including penguins) -- with the result that it comes up short on telling one really good story.

Directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield mostly avoid speaking directly of social issues. Instead, they let the visuals and the animals' plights underscore the importance of maintaining a healthy ecosystem.

Think of Earth as being akin to a greatest-hits collection of a beloved rock band. The context is gone, but the reason for the renown remains.

What it does well is so remarkable that by the time the credits roll you likely won't want it to end.

Earth is at its best when it goes beyond presenting awe-inspiring beauty to elicit a sense of wonder and empathy for our fellow creatures and of global responsibility toward our fragile planet.

The many filmmakers spent five years on this impressive project. They've given us glorious images of an Earth that most of us have never seen. Let's hope that the means to understand it will be included on the DVD.

There's no question that, given the option, Planet Earth is the way to go. This movie will do in a pinch, however, and it is impressive -- provided you find a way to block out the voiceovers.

It's such a joy to see this footage on the big screen -- even better than hi-definition TV -- that you may want to suffer the slings and arrow of an outrageous soundtrack just for the opportunity to see what's on the screen.
