Critic Reviews for Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie
Much of "Force of Nature" feels familiar and unnecessarily predigested.
Dr. Suzuki's upbeat tone is the spoonful of sugar that makes the bitter medicine go down.
Engaging doc mixes passionate environmental arguments with a warm biographical portrait.

Audience Reviews for Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie
A beautiful doc on the life of Canada's most illustrious environmentalist. The humanity of Suzuki emerges from visits to key places from key moments if his life. Missing however is the tale of Suzuki's marital difficulties possibly to secure his participation. The omission is a cloud over an otherwise worthwhile effort.
