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

    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.

    The ascribing of emotions to these critters can get a little Lion King-ripe at times. But the filmmakers have filled in around their "family" narratives with footage that is breathtaking enough on a towering screen -- and you should find the biggest one possible -- that it is hard to object too strenuously.

    It requires only four words to describe Earth: glorious photography, annoying narration.

    Although Earth falls short of its potential, it still contains enough glorious photography to please its target audience.
  6. This first feature from Disney's new nature division has an encyclopedic reach and spectacular footage shot by more than two dozen crack cinematographers.

    For adults, Earth misses the mark of riveting storytelling. Earth crams in the dramatic adventures of several species (including penguins) - with the result that it comes up short on telling one really good story.

    Very wonderful movie that is sure to get children to care about animals and the environment. We need to militantly raise a generation of eco-warriors to save our planet and put the lives and welfare of animals before ourselves. Expand
