Solid docu about global-warming informs rather than preaches.

Earth may be the most striking collection of nature photography I've ever seen. It isn't flawless, but it is a one-of-a-kind treat.

I give directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield huge props for being able to so concisely whittle down their massive 11-episode magnum opus into such a delightfully entertaining and visually stimulating streamlined version.

For most of the way this is an eye-popping, not blood-curdling, experience.

For a round-the-world trip, it feels a bit like a budget bus tour.

April 24, 2009 | Rating: 2/4

[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.

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.

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