The harrowing footage ... leaves you wondering how it could have possibly been filmed without someone getting killed.

Impossible sights are enticingly strung together, forming stories like nothing we've ever seen before.

Planet Earth II is not the perfect getaway. But these quibbles are overshadowed by the stunning shots and the access to more wonders of the world.

Feb 10, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Cities," which follows groups of animals that have adapted to live in dense metropolises, is as beautifully filmed and edifying as the rest of the Planet Earth episodes, but with a more powerful ending than usual.

Attenborough is frequently guilty of species loyalty, just not to his own.

Dec 27, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's tempting to remember Planet Earth II with a sort of golden glow. The Natural History Unit's round-up of life surviving in Earth's extreme environments was full of beautiful sequences, but it's easy to forget how many of them had a nightmarish edge.

That is the strength of the best passages of Planet Earth: when the drama of nature speaks for itself. [Full review in Spanish]

Dec 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Absorbing as this is, Planet Earth II chases viewers as assiduously and expertly as it chases the fauna, rewarding you with sharable stories rather than lingering lessons.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Believe us when we say that it's so beautiful it actually made us weep a little bit - and not just that, but it is genuinely thrilling, eye-opening and better than most of the action movies released this year.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

As has become the Attenborough trademark, Planet Earth II masterfully establishes emotional narratives around its creatures without ever quite crossing the line into full-on anthropomorphism.

Dec 13, 2017 | Full Review…

As beautiful as Planet Earth II is, it is not an escape - nor should it be.

    David Attenborough never ceases to amaze with his incredible story telling. The thing is though, they're not stories, they're real.

    Would be great if they left out the owlgore scare tactics

    Spectacular. A true masterpiece.

    It is fantastic to watch and the David Attenborough's Commentary is fantastic to listen to.
  • Aug 06, 2017
    The sequel of the 2006 documentary is a much more advanced and technical spectacle -- with just as amazing views of our beloved world. David Attenborough continues to impress and it feels like every scene is very prudent and meaningful, almost metaphorical in some way. It's a much shorter season though, and it's not as "wow" as the previous installment. But it still manages to show stunning parts of our world -- from a completely new perspective. Personal rating: 80/100 Critical rating: 90/100
