In Canada, David Suzuki is pretty much an icon: a household name synonymous with nature and science, best known as the host of the long-running CBC TV show "The Nature of Things" and as a pioneering and passionate environmentalist.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Much of "Force of Nature" feels familiar and unnecessarily predigested."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Suzuki's unimpeachable cred as a longtime climate-change evangelist and swooning regard for the natural world do give the conversation a convincing, if depressing, urgency, but what sets Force of Nature apart is the sweeping diversity of his life."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"Powerful, illuminating and inspirational."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"An astonishing documentary about the life and work of scientist and eco-activist David Suzuki who shares his elder wisdom about science, nature, conservation, and the right path of indigenous peoples."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"His legacy lecture may in parts be dry but the documentary reminds us of Suzuki's humanitarian legacy and the art of communication about issues that are vital to all of us"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Dr. Suzuki's upbeat tone is the spoonful of sugar that makes the bitter medicine go down."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"[A] lavish, lovely and rather earnestly dull tribute of a movie."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Too much to say, and too little time to say it, David Suzuki cheers for the global environment."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"At best, Force of Nature restates an important message to a wider audience."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
"Engaging doc mixes passionate environmental arguments with a warm biographical portrait."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Although Suzuki's message that humans have exhausted the resources of the biosphere and need to rethink their relationship with the natural world may be a familiar one, it bears repeating."
‑ Alissa Simon, Variety
"Informative but less than thrilling profile of a prominent environmentalist."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"a complex portrait of a man ill-used by humanity in his youth and in this elder years still dedicated to convincing humanity to save itself."
