Critic Reviews for There's Something in the Water

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (3)

  • "There's Something in the Water" doesn't break any molds in terms of documentary form, and it's less impressive as cinema than activism. But it's easily digestible and well researched, with the aid of Waldron's book.

  • While the documentary has the feel of a scrappy passion project, the message itself remains powerful.

    March 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • What results is an emotional appeal that highlights a grave problem but doesn't give the viewer the scientific, factual foundation to be completely convinced. The film also doesn't offer solutions.

  • If the movie seems like it's trying to reach out to folks like Page, the approach seems practically weaponized: government and corporations aren't listening to the people in this doc, as monstrous as it sounds, and everyone else needs to get involved.

  • If "There's Something in the Water" isn't the most sophisticated treatment of the issues it scrutinizes, it nonetheless makes a very convincing case for protections against environmental harm being applied equally to all members of society.

  • Made in a standard documentary format that includes a voiceover and a tad too much weepy music, Water gets its job done directly enough, underlining a situation that remains dire despite what seems to be a growing level awareness around the country.
