...feels like something we've all seen and heard before.

Too scattershot to land any effective punches.

Well-intentioned save-the-planet doco is dense with factoids but ultimately something of a bore.

...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.

As a PSA, The 11th Hour is an extremely important work, but as a motion picture, it's ripe for recycling.

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
August 31, 2007
While there's the requisite "you can make a difference" section toward the end, you'll still likely walk out with a sense of impending doom, which may be fully appropriate but probably not what the filmmakers intended.
August 31, 2007
For all its scare tactics, The 11th Hour simply isn't that compelling, and we're talking about the end of the world here.
August 31, 2007
The film almost overwhelms the audience with information, throwing out so many facts and figures, and so much footage, that it's all hard to process.
August 31, 2007
The movie needed to reflect its own lesson: Less would have been more.

In the end, your reaction to Hour may depend on your feelings about humanity's collective common sense.

The 11th Hour made me realize that what's wrong with "preaching to the choir" isn't the intention to fire up a political base. It's the preaching.
August 31, 2007
The movie is presenting its case in such a uniformly insistent tone, as the directors pile on one voice of doom after another.
August 30, 2007
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.

Consistent with the film's occasionally hippy-dippy tone, DiCaprio speaks about human beings engaging in a willed 'evolution in consciousness,' which sounds a little too desperate to be comforting.
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.
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.
