Just Do It lifts the lid on climate activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern-day outlaws. Documented over a year, Emily James' film follows these activists as they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks despite the very real threat of arrest. -- (C) Official Site

[Conveys] the frustrations of dissent when the only hope of change seemingly involves stepping over the bounds of legality, before closing with some surprisingly hopeful news by way of encouraging those contemplating this path.

It's always dramatically satisfying when film-makers become part of the story; in this case, it's also politically instructive.
Unfortunately, much of it is just smiling crowds carrying placards. More anger would have raised the temperature.
Engaging and frequently eye-opening documentary that gives a valuable voice to a section of the protest movement that's often dismissed by the media, though the film loses focus in the second half and runs out of things to say.
Not a film you'd seek out for real critical objectivity, but for the neo-hippie hurly-burly of being there at the barricades.
