Solid docu about global-warming informs rather than preaches.

For most of the way this is an eye-popping, not blood-curdling, experience.

For a round-the-world trip, it feels a bit like a budget bus tour.

[The directors] know how to craft a sequence (lions and elephants uneasily drinking at the same water hole), have an eye for the telling shot (baboons mincing across a flood plain), and mercifully avoid making the fauna look human.

As a spectacle Disney's Earth is right out of this world.

For adults, Earth misses the mark of riveting storytelling. Earth crams in the dramatic adventures of several species (including penguins) -- with the result that it comes up short on telling one really good story.

In it's defense the TV series this was culled from is entertaining and informative but cut down into 90 mintues makes for a vague, confusing documentary.

Undeniably beautiful and soothing but a bit too preachy and pretentious to really leave a huge impact.
