    This movie sucked balls. all they did was just take the footage from Planet Earth (BBC Series) and say they filmed it. Disney is such a butthole. "What's all this I hear about not wearing the Purity rings, ha ha" - Mr. Mouse.

    Dreadful, dreadful. Awful script, nondescript music, poor editing of very beautiful BBC nature footage. Repeated scenes of young animals hunted and killed in slow motion -- very inappropriate for children. Haven't walked out of a movie in years before this. Watch the Attenborough BBC specials instead.

    Made up of over 90%+ footage that people who would have been interested in this have already seen, and then voiced by darth vader, this movie even has large snippetts of the exact same lines as in Planet Earth. It is a complete waste of money, unless you are looking for a sentimental and fatalistic movie that attempts to demonstrate how life is meaningless (its subtle, but there) and Made up of over 90%+ footage that people who would have been interested in this have already seen, and then voiced by darth vader, this movie even has large snippetts of the exact same lines as in Planet Earth. It is a complete waste of money, unless you are looking for a sentimental and fatalistic movie that attempts to demonstrate how life is meaningless (its subtle, but there) and really really love the narrator, I would skip the whole thing and just see Planet Earth.

    Gigantic propaganda vehicle for environmental extremist global warming movement. It's a sad state of affairs when parents are paying to have their kids indoctrinated -- by way of cute fuzzy animals -- into the religion (not science) of "Warmism" which is built on layer upon layer of fallacy, ignorance, outright deception, and a foundation rooted in socialist dogma.

  1. This super-duper deluxe nature documentary clearly aims to recruit young viewers as conservationists.

    Although Earth falls short of its potential, it still contains enough glorious photography to please its target audience.

    A ravishing distillation of the BBC/Discovery series "Planet Earth," docu brings to the large screen memorable images that cried out on TV for the full movie-going experience.
