World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
The movie, as have other eco-documentaries, chillingly examines how endless bits of the toxic material routinely flood our oceans, harm its inhabitants and find their way into the fish we eat.
| Original Score: 4/5
If we must talk trash, Mr. Irons - assisted by a scientist or two and Vangelis's doomy score - is an inspired choice of guide.
Crucial viewing for realists and alarmists both.
| Original Score: 5/5
The form is straightforward, if a little meandering, as is the message: We have to fix this.
While its techniques are manipulative -- it's certainly no margin-call to say that Vangelis's two-dimensional score barely lets up from start to finish -- the picture ultimately swerves pitfalls of hectoring preachiness.
Earnest but rather televisual.
