All Critics (100) | Top Critics (36) | Fresh (61) | Rotten (30) | DVD (7)

It's not a movie with a lot of answers, but The 11th Hour does push the debate further down the road.

No matter what time it is in the grand, cosmic scheme of things, The 11th Hour arrives about a day late and an eco-dollar short of An Inconvenient Truth

For all its scare tactics, The 11th Hour simply isn't that compelling, and we're talking about the end of the world here.

The movie needed to reflect its own lesson: Less would have been more.

The montage rolls inexorably forward, pitched somewhere between Koyaanisqatsi and An Inconvenient Truth.

East Bay Express

As much as for what it says, the film is important for how it says it, in a manner that is easy to understand and hard to ignore.

Full Review… | October 23, 2009

A cautionary tale sounding the alarm that we're close to the tipping point of wholesale ecological disaster, if not already irreversibly past it.

...feels like something we've all seen and heard before.

Movie Metropolis

A heavy dose of hysteria along with copious scientific data means that, even at 90 minutes, it can feel unwieldy and quite overwhelming. Still, if you're able to handle the pace, it is in the end, a positive eye-opener.

Too scattershot to land any effective punches.

Empire Magazine

While it's a well-constructed doc, full of relevant information and geared toward those people who still might be fence-sitters on the subject, there's something missing... a sense of maddened outrage.

Austin Chronicle

On a subject as grand as the planet, we need expert testimony. That's what The 11th Hour delivers. Finally. The film's power is its objective and authoritative declarations.

What is there to say about The 11th Hour? There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. It does exactly what it sets out to do.

...deserves credit for passion and good intentions...

Sacramento News & Review

It's almost an eco-message companion piece to the recent Iraq documentary, 'No End in Sight': It relies on the strength and logic of its arguments rather than on appeals to emotion or partisanship to make its points.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

...feels soft and flashy, a visual tour of a coming apocalypse (what's the story of the polar bear wandering through what looked like a burning garbage dump?) that regrettably seems to have no faith in its presumptive audience's attention span.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

The arguments the movie presents are powerful, necessary and, most importantly, underexplored by an increasingly distracted mainstream media.

As a PSA, The 11th Hour is an extremely important work, but as a motion picture, it's ripe for recycling.

After all the doom and gloom, they do offer rays of hope in the intelligent designs of architects and designers who suggest that remedies may lie in creating eco-friendly structures. The fascinating innovation served up here should have been what the bulk

The 11th Hour presents its argument clearly: Disregarding the planetary repercussions of human behavior, or rather misbehavior, holds tragic consequences.

Audience Reviews for The 11th Hour


Informative. Loved the cinematography.

It's our generation that gets to change the world... forever.

Good and important documentary about mostly earth, global warming and a few more things that are very important in our species. This documentary is mostly informative and despite the fragmented expositions of its well-meaning interview subjects, it offers hope and a heroic sense of optimism that we can still do something about the issue.

This first appeared on I applaud Leonardo DiCaprios effort to co-write and co-produce this Al Gore-style environmental warning film. I agree with his views and those espoused by the never-ending parade of speakers about the need to address the environmental collapse that threatens to destroy our way of life, and indeed our very lives, however, I think he really could have found a better way to express these views. His heart is in the right place, but Leo, my friend, heart aint enough. He has some interesting speakers but repetition might help study for a biology exam, but it doesnt do much for entertainment.

Pack the bags, honey! Were going on a guilt trip. Al gore took us on one of these, as well, but at least he gave some amusement along the way and offered an upbeat optimistic ending that made us believe that it wasnt too late to save the whales, the tigers and all of those little humans running around ( I kind of like them). Here we are offered a parade of authors, scientists and environmental leaders telling us over and over again that we better get moving. Some solutions are looked at and those are always good to see, but a little entertainment value would have gone a long way.

Dry, but not a bad documentary, and certainly a topic that does need to driven (ummm, or commuted on a high speed electric train) into our consciousness a couple more times at least. A little more imagination and variety would have helped out here. I know that guys like Leo and Gore like to think they are persuading, but really they are mostly preaching to the choir, (will George Bush see this film? Im guessing not - probably thinks its left wing pinko propaganda) so at least at least give us a chuckle or two along with our sermon. Still, celebrities and politicians see the publics will through box office receipts, so please see this movie.

This movie is a documentary of the change in our world and the consequences of the industrial revolution on our environment. There are detailed accounts from experts in the field. It is also narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, who brings the 11th hour to light. It's not too late to change our ways to save the environment.

Candy Rose

Super Reviewer

Interesting plea for action to combat a global catastrophe, with a range of talking heads and fronted by DiCaprio. It is less manipulative than 'An Inconvenient Truth' and more philosophical but the interesting graphics are spoiled by being shown too quickly to take in all the information.
