It's breathtaking to watch, although its meditative possibilities are limited thanks to Redford's narration and an overbearing orchestral accompaniment.
Earth: One Amazing Day proves inspirational in its depiction of the wonders of the natural world.
"Earth: One Amazing Day" is kid-friendly, but adults will be equally awed by the animal wonders and how the filmmakers captured them in such exquisite detail.
The Earth might be the film's titular star but the documentary is really about the sun and how that star's waxing and waning energy over 24 hours shapes life down here, from the warmth of morning to the shadows of night.
The film works best as a collection of cleansing images to meditate on - it's a welcome respite from the awfulness of the developed world, though the dangers of climate change and extinction are glossed over by design.
Projected onto a big screen in all of its digital glory, this footage is spectacular. And yet the movie as a whole feels like a missed opportunity to explore how humans also fit in with this cycle of day and night.
As expected from the [BBC's] wildlife team the photography is top-notch with clever use of framing and film speeds capturing some amazing imagery...
That need to draw a movie-style narrative from animal behaviour gets annoying. The beautiful footage is good enough.
Our guide is Robert Redford, whose warm and avuncular narration keeps things light, and is reminiscent of 1960s-era Disney broadcasts.
You may well prefer the David Attenborough approach, but the footage is still wonderful.
If there is a human sour enough not to enjoy the sloth swimming leisurely to meet his mate, then he or she deserves to be pickled alive.
Showing how animal families are driven by the rhythms of night and day, this sometimes awe-inspiring doc is visually stunning.
Amazing film and one of the better documentaries coming out with a sense of fun and wonder. Robert Redford might not have been the correct choice for the narrator but even he can't shadow this wonderful film. The film is family friendly and for those looking for depth, like the Attenborough documentaries will be letdown. The film is beautiful to look at and is a visual splendour from beginning to end. 27/09/2018.
