Inside Planet Earth takes viewers on a journey straight through the ground we stand on and down to the center (literally) of our world. This engaging documentary explores the properties of the Earth's many sub-surface layers. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

Whether it's a crisp aerial shot of a wolf taking down a caribou, night footage of lions tackling an elephant, there isn't a moment that doesn't fill one with awe.
Like Arctic Tale, this is a great looking and interesting view of nature. Also like that other 2007 film, Earth falls short of being truly memorable.
For those who don't have the time to watch all 11 episodes of the BBC series, Earth is a nice alternative.
We are taken on an unforgettable year-long trip in which we are amazed, amused, surprised and often overwhelmed.
Mix the grave but clear message of An Inconvenient Truth with the alternatively raw and cute look at wildlife of La marche de l'empereur (March of the Penguins) and you will get Earth, a bona fide documentary hit.
Shot over 4,500 days in 200 spots around the world, the film dazzles with the wonders of our planet.
A feature-film condensation of last year's blockbusting BBC nature series Planet Earth - but, in a somewhat spineless move, it has been shorn of David Attenborough's breathy tones and given instead those of Patrick Stewart.
If Aunty Beeb could stick to productions of this quality, she wouldn't be in such a mess. Earth's script may grate with anyone over 12, but you can't help but be impressed by what you see.
Highlights include the joyful footage of a polar bear tobogganing in the snow; baboons cautiously tiptoeing through floodwater, their hairy arms flailing for balance; and magnificent humpbacked whales gorging themselves on krill.
Astounding images of whales cavorting in the oceans, rivers crashing down mountain-height waterfalls, cherry trees blossoming in time-lapse and many other wonders are complimented admirably by the rich, authoritative tones of narrator Patrick Stewart.
Stunningly shot and carrying an important message, this doc is gorgeous.
Every frame shouts, "save the planet!" louder than a roaring pride of Kalahari lions - and when you've seen the film, you'll know just how loud that is.
