Even if we can understand that the future of our planet depends on a multi-species sharing economy, the film doesn't always match up what it says with what it shows.
| Original Score: 6/10
A visually gorgeous, at times astonishing screen experience.
| Original Score: 4/5
Nature films don't come any more spectacular than the BBC's "One Life."
| Original Score: 3/4
A typical British nature documentary, which is to say, a very good film, and one that mostly balances the "awwws" with the awesome.
A typically eye-catching, years-in-the-making chronicle of animal life that is tainted by the urge to anthropomorphize.
| Original Score: 3/5
Another gorgeously shot document of nature's majesty, this one focusing on the life cycle-and interconnectedness-of all living creatures.
As much as Daniel Craig's narration can feel tacked-on, it's really secondary to the film's expert camerawork.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
What's before our eyes suggests we share the planet with some amazingly strange beings.
It's obvious One Life is all about the visual impact. And in that regard, the film is just stunning.
Beautifully shot and featuring some genuinely astonishing footage, this is a thoroughly entertaining documentary that delivers a powerful message.
The camera work on this nature documentary is so staggering that it really is worth seeing on a very big screen.
Shot with dazzling technical prowess.
A technically brilliant wildlife documentary from BBC Earth Film, let down by its gushy, absurdly pro-family script.
| Original Score: 2/5
One Life is a film truly deserving that much-abused adjective of unmissable.
A fascinating salute to all creatures great and small.
Quite a spectacle, and a nice family outing.
Four years in the making, this is simply a staggering achievement, with a standard of photography that continues Britain's excellence in the field of wildlife film-making.
A well structured montage of wall-to-wall splendor, 'One Life' is the culmination of years of patient filming that deserves to be seen in all its glory - on the big screen.
This BBC Earth animal-behaviour doco catches the sheer jaw-dropping mentalness of the creature kingdom round the globe.
