It's our generation that gets to change the world... forever. Good and important documentary about mostly earth, global warming and a few more things that are very important in our species. This documentary is mostly informative and despite the fragmented expositions of its well-meaning interview subjects, it offers hope and a heroic sense of optimism that we can still do something about the issue. This first appeared on www.realmoviereview.com I applaud Leonardo DiCaprios effort to co-write and co-produce this Al Gore-style environmental warning film. I agree with his views and those espoused by the never-ending parade of speakers about the need to address the environmental collapse that threatens to destroy our way of life, and indeed our very lives, however, I think he really could have found a better way to express these views. His heart is in the right place, but Leo, my friend, heart aint enough. He has some interesting speakers but repetition might help study for a biology exam, but it doesnt do much for entertainment. Pack the bags, honey! Were going on a guilt trip. Al gore took us on one of these, as well, but at least he gave some amusement along the way and offered an upbeat optimistic ending that made us believe that it wasnt too late to save the whales, the tigers and all of those little humans running around ( I kind of like them). Here we are offered a parade of authors, scientists and environmental leaders telling us over and over again that we better get moving. Some solutions are looked at and those are always good to see, but a little entertainment value would have gone a long way. Dry, but not a bad documentary, and certainly a topic that does need to driven (ummm, or commuted on a high speed electric train) into our consciousness a couple more times at least. A little more imagination and variety would have helped out here. I know that guys like Leo and Gore like to think they are persuading, but really they are mostly preaching to the choir, (will George Bush see this film? Im guessing not - probably thinks its left wing pinko propaganda) so at least at least give us a chuckle or two along with our sermon. Still, celebrities and politicians see the publics will through box office receipts, so please see this movie.

This movie is a documentary of the change in our world and the consequences of the industrial revolution on our environment. There are detailed accounts from experts in the field. It is also narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, who brings the 11th hour to light. It's not too late to change our ways to save the environment.
