Launched in time for Earth Day, the message is lost in the medium.

A vital, eye-opening inquiry into American energy consumption.
May 9, 2020
A film that challenges the paradigm of growth, especially the illusion that alternative energy can allow us to consume resources as if they were inexhaustible.
May 8, 2020
Planet of the Humans trades in the worst form of purity-test liberalism, where green-energy enthusiasts are hypocrites and anyone who supports them is really just in deep denial about the endemic intransigence of the fossil-fuel industry.

All the noise got my attention.

A feature-length made by an avowed environmentalist in 2020 could arm the public with information to work toward a better place along that spectrum...Gibbs doesn't have such critical democratic engagement in mind.
May 4, 2020
This cri de coeur from... Gibbs may lack balance and counterarguments, but it convincingly makes the case that "less must be the new more" if humankind is to have any chance of not being wiped out due to overpopulation and overconsumption,

I was absolutely educated by Planet of the Humans, but I was not entertained. I was not emotionally moved. I was not inspired to fight for change, and I was not shown any feasible solutions to the problems presented.

Planet of the Humans is wildly unscientific, outdated, full of falsehoods, and benefits fossil fuel industry promoters and climate deniers.

[U]nlike Moore, Gibbs is an understated and somewhat flat narrator.
April 27, 2020
Gibbs certainly knows his subject and he cares. But his delivery needed more energy to keep the audience engaged. Gibbs does not deliver the visuals and the information like Moore does, with humor and sarcasm.

This may be just the sort of disillusioning we need if we want to rescue ourselves, but brace yourself.
April 23, 2020
Bleak docu dispels clean energy beliefs; disturbing images.
April 23, 2020
From the warnings of the 1950s to the 21st-century corporate takeover of green energy, a grim look at humanity's fate as the planet heats up. Is there any hope? This feels like only half the story.
April 23, 2020
The loosely structured assemblage of damning information eventually proves more numbing than illuminating.
April 23, 2020
Gibbs doesn't mention nuclear and - a little lamely, perhaps - has no clear lesson or moral, other than the need to take a fiercely critical look at the environmental establishment. Well, it's always valuable to re-examine a sacred cow.
April 23, 2020
This doc, directed by long-time Michael Moore collaborator Jeff Gibbs, advocates passionately for a planet suffering from environmental devastation but offers few glimmers of hope.
April 23, 2020
A bleak picture of a near future that mankind's very existence is irrevocably condemning.
April 22, 2020
[Planet of the Humans] plays like a documentary your science teacher would've put on in high school so that they could catch up on grading some papers.
April 22, 2020
This is a very well composed rant but little more than that, and though [Jeff] Gibbs' anger is understandable, his despairing rhetoric seems unlikely to help.
