The End of the Line Reviews

If the tone is occasionally off-putting, the message -- at least, the facts about the fish -- is harder to shrug off.

With commendable clarity, it lays out the data.

This movie wants to cover every base without thinking very deeply about them. So while a lot of ground is covered in 80 brisk minutes, the information presented is only abstractly useful.

It's hard not to feel that the vital information in The End of the Line may have been more effectively relayed by Clover's original book or by a movie whose methods were less pedantic and pedestrian.

The End of the Line documents what threatens to become an irreversible decline in aquatic populations within 40 years.

The End of the Line, an eco-mentary that warns against overfishing, baits its hook with alarmist rhetoric and aversion therapy.

This vital, if rhetorically clumsy, film by Rupert Murray subverts our ancient faith in the ocean as an inexhaustible resource.

Except for lush underwater shots, the movie is dry and preachy. And it would not have hurt to give the other side a chance to respond.

The End of the Line is an apocalyptic documentary that is as beautiful as it is damning.

This passionate ecological documentary, The End of the Line, spells out the problem in clear, urgent, prosaic terms.

Through graph-wielding scientists, picturesque seascapes and Ted Danson's voiceover, director Rupert Murray lays out the facts about the ongoing decimation of world fishing stocks, which could mean the end of tuna as we know it.

The End of the Line is a free-form splash of jaw-dropping graphs, impressively accredited talking heads, and sumptuously shot portraits of natural beauty and decay, overdramatically scored to symphonic and other intense musical attacks.
