Consensus: With its spectacular and extensive footage, Earth is both informative and entertaining.

Graham Keeley
Hollywood Reporter

Solid docu about global-warming informs rather than preaches.

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader

[The directors] know how to craft a sequence (lions and elephants uneasily drinking at the same water hole), have an eye for the telling shot (baboons mincing across a flood plain), and mercifully avoid making the fauna look human.

When Disney gets involved in making things green, we're talking about the color of money.

In it's defense the TV series this was culled from is entertaining and informative but cut down into 90 mintues makes for a vague, confusing documentary.

I am assuming that is a summary of the BBC series Planet Earth made for theatres, so I am rating this based on the 15 hour, British version I saw on DVD. I… More

Undeniably beautiful and soothing but a bit too preachy and pretentious to really leave a huge impact.
