Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A visually gorgeous, at times astonishing screen experience."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"A typically eye-catching, years-in-the-making chronicle of animal life that is tainted by the urge to anthropomorphize."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"Even if we can understand that the future of our planet depends on a multi-species sharing economy, the film doesn't always match up what it says with what it shows."
‑ Amanda Gilroy, PopMatters
"The camera work on this nature documentary is so staggering that it really is worth seeing on a very big screen."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"One Life is a film truly deserving that much-abused adjective of unmissable."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Nature films don't come any more spectacular than the BBC's "One Life.""
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Another gorgeously shot document of nature's majesty, this one focusing on the life cycle-and interconnectedness-of all living creatures."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"As much as Daniel Craig's narration can feel tacked-on, it's really secondary to the film's expert camerawork."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
"Shot with dazzling technical prowess."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"A fascinating salute to all creatures great and small."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"A typical British nature documentary, which is to say, a very good film, and one that mostly balances the "awwws" with the awesome."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"What's before our eyes suggests we share the planet with some amazingly strange beings."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Beautifully shot and featuring some genuinely astonishing footage, this is a thoroughly entertaining documentary that delivers a powerful message."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"A technically brilliant wildlife documentary from BBC Earth Film, let down by its gushy, absurdly pro-family script."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Quite a spectacle, and a nice family outing."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
