Avoids polemic in favor of simply showing the many splendors we may yet lose forever.

An Imax feature that is dazzling yet superfluous.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic

A repetitive, globe-hopping Imax project that dresses up well-known ecological truisms with pretty nature photography.

A feast for the senses. It's also one from the heart.

Audience Reviews for Sacred Planet

The DVD special features are actually a little more interesting than the film. Beautiful imagery, beautiful message, but I wish things wouldn't be shot specifically for IMAX screens. Or if they were that they would simultaneously be shot for regular screens for the home release. The format of getting completely immersed in the images through peripheral vision and the giant screen experience is entirely lost on a home tv unless you're a billionaire with a home IMAX theatre (in which case hit me up, I'll totally come shack up with you). So. While the images are beautiful, and the dialogue that was present was important, it would've benefited from a little more narrative to add something to the at home experience.

Beautiful and thought provoking without being a preachy environmental film. It is really wonderfully filmed.

Very visually entertaining and stimulating. Would've been better to see on the big screen though...
