Critic Reviews for DamNation

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • "DamNation" does little in the way of presenting the pros alongside the cons of dams, resulting in cheerful feature-length propaganda that seems to be disagreeing with no one in particular.

    May 18, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Directors Ben Knight and Travis Rummel have made a fleet movie with a convincing argument for systemic dam removal (some of which is caught thrillingly on film) and arresting nature-drenched cinematography.

    May 15, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Lumps together its grievances and interviews in a way that feels scattered and geared toward those inclined to agree.

    May 8, 2014 | Full Review…
  • A quick, smart documentary about the havoc one country can create in its native fish populations by building 75,000 dams over an 80- or 90-year span.

    May 6, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The movie's style is as discursive and scattershot as Knight's narration.

  • A straightforward documentary about the history of dams in America and the recent movement to remove expensive, outdated dams that impede fish passage.
