Audience Reviews for Darwin's Nightmare
The biggest strength and weakness of this movie was the lack of explanatory narration. He throws you right in there and really lets the characters tell you the story. Some shots were pure genius. I thought it was a great film that shows yet another example of wealthy nations exploiting the poor in every possible way in the situation.
Shocking, disturbing, heartbreaking documentary about biological, economic and social de-evolution in Tanzania.
I remember seeing the large aquarium at the Toronto Zoo showing all the fish species that call Lake Victoria home. It is a large lake but a fragile one and this film points out how war and poverty often provide mankind with no choice but to introduce destructive species into ecosystems.
