  • Summary: Premiering on Earth Day, this documentary is a journey around the world to some of the most exotic and beautiful places that still exist. It serves as witness to all that remains to be cherished, rather than to all that has been lost. (Walt Disney Pictures)

  1. Its gently delivered theme and friendly images of nature (no lions eating antelopes here), this is a fine thing for families and school groups.
  2. It's an ideal film to open on Earth Day, for in the least preachy way possible it celebrates the natural world to make viewers pause and consider the profound importance of preserving the planet.
  3. 60
    Despite his obvious passion, Long never fully ties together the human and animal footage, and so the film feels disjointed, as if two different documentaries are being fused into one.
  4. In this well-intentioned celebration of nature and traditional ways of life, giant-screen images feel generic when they should inspire wonder.

    Respecting Mother Earth should never be as dull as watching Sacred Planet, a repetitive, globe-hopping Imax project that dresses up well-known ecological truisms with pretty nature photography.
  6. If Sacred Planet helps kids appreciate the beauty and wonder of nature and animal life, it will be worth it. But surely civilization can come up with a more generously entertaining delivery system.
  7. 50
    Beautifully shot and well-meant -- but fairly snoozy.
