Critic Reviews for H2Oil

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (6)

  • It never distinguishes between its moving human stories and a general eco-activism, which does nothing much to sharpen their individual cases.

    June 11, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • "It's the biggest unsustainable development on the planet," says one campaigner, indirectly explaining the need for three films that tell us that. Form and content in perfect harmony.

  • Walsh's documentary is shot with flair but its message and innovative touches just miss the mark.

    June 10, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The arguments propounded on behalf of the environment look faultless, but they could be distilled into a 10-minute video campaign rather than stretched beyond an hour.

  • H2Oil is a hard-hitting, if thoroughly depressing eco-documentary that demands to be seen.

    June 11, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Sadly, the lacklustre expert testimonies and lengthy sequences of executive intransigence in the face of community indignation fail to grab the attention, rendering this a laudable but dull expos of a growing environmental concern.

    a doc thats asks questions about oil and its effects on water, and health, and its current global situation here concentrating on a piece of vast land in canada where oil export is big business. a interesting enough doc that tries its best to get to the bottom of issues concerning this, although no, Inconvenient truth or other docs of this kind, its worth the watch if only to introduce you to the situation
