Critic Reviews for Hurricane on the Bayou

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (3)

  • The narrative is built one happy cliche at a time until the story of Katrina ceases to be about appalling environmental neglect, or the colossal failure of the federal government to manage a disaster.

    March 22, 2007 | Full Review…
  • A classic 'before and after' document, terrific images of what was once there, actual footage of the storm itself, moving TV news coverage of the disaster and a conclusion that's more optimistic than it has any right to be.

    March 16, 2007 | Rating: 4/5
  • The smart, classy Hurricane on the Bayou preaches an invaluable environmental lesson for children and parents: Don't monkey with the ecosystem without expecting payback.

    March 16, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite its split personality, Hurricane offers more good than bad, including a lively soundtrack featuring Benoit, the Neville Brothers and Fats Domino.

  • Katrina will end up changing the entire South, from Houston to Florida, for decades to come, yet Bayou still insists on its upbeat gospel ending.
