The 11th Hour Reviews

September 14, 2007
...feels soft and flashy, a visual tour of a coming apocalypse (what's the story of the polar bear wandering through what looked like a burning garbage dump?) that regrettably seems to have no faith in its presumptive audience's attention span.

This movie, for all its noble intentions, is a bore. Rent An Inconvenient Truth instead. Even if you've already seen it.

The movie needed to reflect its own lesson: Less would have been more.

If it gets people thinking about which light bulbs they buy and their current gas mileage and such, then it's good to have it in the world. It is, however, a panicky blur as documentaries go.

Unusually undisguised leftism. The scare montages are--I'm not making this up--very similar to one shown in last year's remake of The Omen.

It's like sitting through a college lecture and knowing with gripping dread that you're going to be quizzed on all of this afterward.
August 24, 2007
There is no room for reason or compelling data in this grossly manipulative and sloppy propaganda flick. The filmmakers are simply out to break you.

Seeming to cater to the ADD generation even as it tackles a subject of enormous scope, The 11th Hour doesn't quite get the job done.

DiCaprio's star power probably propelled this film into release, even though Gore has stolen much of his thunder.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

...feels like something we've all seen and heard before.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 24, 2007
The film lacks both the personality and central figure (as well as the all-important sense of humor) that made last year's similar An Inconvenient Truth so watchable.
August 31, 2007
No matter what time it is in the grand, cosmic scheme of things, The 11th Hour arrives about a day late and an eco-dollar short of An Inconvenient Truth
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Too scattershot to land any effective punches.

August 14, 2007
A cautionary eco-doc so earnest and moth-eaten it should properly be seen on filmstrip during fourth-period social studies.
August 22, 2007
More concerned with emotionally manipulating the audience than breaking any new ground on the subject matter.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 24, 2007
The film's eagerness to embrace alarmist speculation undermines the basic truths it tells.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 5, 2007
As a PSA, The 11th Hour is an extremely important work, but as a motion picture, it's ripe for recycling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 16, 2007
Its foretelling of gloom and doom almost make the entire idea of worrying about the global climate change crisis seem unnecessary, seeing as we're all apparently going to die by our own industrialized hands.
