Educational and inventive, the documentary speaks with a strong editorial voice from a backward-looking vantage point. It's a narrative device that proves most effective.

Communicates something of the massive global impact of our careless, though officially encouraged, consumption, even if Armstrong's outsized ambitions threaten to dissipate some of the movie's force.

So tightly constructed and dynamic you leave the cinema energised rather than terrified and depressed.

By speaking directly to the disaffected and disinterested, its light tone successfully disguises an intent that could not be more serious or more urgent, which is no small feat.

An engaging and urgent attempt to make us all see sense about climate change.

Though this narrative device can feel a bit gimmicky and grandiose, it also provides a visual and emotional power that drives home this absorbing film's crucial cautionary message.

Postlethwaite's battered face is a good metaphor for Earth's ravagement. But the film is too overtly left-wing and anti-US to be of inclusive use.

...a run-of-the-mill documentary revolving around the impact that humanity's progressively bad decisions are having on the environment...

Does little more than enumerate the ills and evils of today's world in a cry of panic and accusation, regurgitating those images and messages that serve its cause.
