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

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.

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

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.

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.

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...

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.

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

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

Differentiates itself from others in the focusing on the big picture.

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

Felt like a college lecture more than a cinema experience, but is essential viewing.

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

Hour, even with its somewhat tedious presentation, has profound ideas to share, and in this naked intent lies a disturbing, chilling tale of a tomorrow we all can avoid through action and some good old-fashioned consideration.

As depressing as the first two-thirds of the film is, the last third is surprisingly empowering and hopeful.
