Solid docu about global-warming informs rather than preaches.

Dec 17, 2009

For most of the way this is an eye-popping, not blood-curdling, experience.

For a round-the-world trip, it feels a bit like a budget bus tour.

Apr 24, 2009 | Rating: 2/4

[The directors] know how to craft a sequence (lions and elephants uneasily drinking at the same water hole), have an eye for the telling shot (baboons mincing across a flood plain), and mercifully avoid making the fauna look human.

As a spectacle Disney's Earth is right out of this world.

Apr 24, 2009 | Rating: 3/4

For adults, Earth misses the mark of riveting storytelling. Earth crams in the dramatic adventures of several species (including penguins) -- with the result that it comes up short on telling one really good story.

In it's defense the TV series this was culled from is entertaining and informative but cut down into 90 mintues makes for a vague, confusing documentary.

Undeniably beautiful and soothing but a bit too preachy and pretentious to really leave a huge impact.

This documentary was shot over four years in countless locations and combines the best nature and animal photography you have ever seen to a very powerful film. Not only is it sweet and funny, but also breathtakingly beautiful, cruel and true, just like nature. Some of the scenes, like the paradise birds or the wading monkeys, are so jaw-droppingly new and amazing that you can't help but rub your eyes. The very fitting and lovely soundtrack plays a big part in creating a unique atmosphere, as well. The commentary states interesting facts every once in a while, but never annoys with too much information or by stating the obvious. While the final message of showing more care for the environment and nature is not presented very subtly it is still a valid one to make. Considering the beautiful images of landscapes and animals you followed for 90 minutes at that point, it would take a fool not to agree. As far as nature documentaries go, this is by far the most impressive film I have ever seen.
