A heavy dose of hysteria along with copious scientific data means that, even at 90 minutes, it can feel unwieldy and quite overwhelming. Still, if you're able to handle the pace, it is in the end, a positive eye-opener.

It's not a movie with a lot of answers, but The 11th Hour does push the debate further down the road.
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
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 movie needed to reflect its own lesson: Less would have been more.

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.

The shadowy photography of the interviewees lends an ominous tone to nearly every scene, but what they're saying is often pragmatic and helpful.

An Inconvenient Truth was short on how to make life better. It rushed through a list of 'what to do next' offerings in the film's last few minutes. Here is where The 11th Hour shines.

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.

If Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth was a warning, The 11th Hour is the red alert.
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 24, 2007
It benefits the most by providing good advice and an abundance of well-considered ideas from forward thinkers of all stripes and persuasions who refuse to give up hope.
August 24, 2007
The filmmakers take pains not to foster fatalistic gloom, concentrating on some of the progressive solutions still available to us.
August 24, 2007
This movie, for all its noble intentions, is a bore. Rent An Inconvenient Truth instead. Even if you've already seen it.
August 24, 2007
The movie says we have to get back to the garden before complacency and ignorance hasten our demise. This is a hard argument to make without sounding kooky, but the documentary is too dire to turn dippy, cheesy, or sentimental.
