Earth, the feature-length version of the BBC'S 'Planet Earth' series, is one of the most visually stunning nature documentaries ever to be given a cinematic release. The dazzling high-resolution footage and cutting-edge time-lapse techniques are eye-popping.

Beautiful and and heartbreaking

I am quite shocked that some reviewers were bored or would have 'walked out if not for their son being with them" - this is exactly the movie children of this century need to see. It graphically documents how incredible life on this planet is and how easily it can be destroyed - by our own behaviour. Its not a film to enjoy - its a film to learn from....

Simply stunning

This was a fantastically shot feature/doco. Some of the vistas were simply stunning. The time lapse photography was great also. Definitely worth a viewing

Worth going to

Some great photography, some average. Some shots I've never seen the likes of, but followers of nature movies/documentaries may be mislead by the 5 star reviews. Moderately informative, and well worth going to.

I loved it.

What a hater Roger... I've seen the BBC series, and while the film version is a best of - what else could it be? Unless you wanted sit in the cinema for a few days. It was a great snapshot of the entire series, highly recommended.

Not one frame of CGI is used in "Earth," a landmark achievement utilizing the latest tech advances as it follows the cute and cuddly across multiple hemispheres and seasons. 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.

It lets the animals' fragile survival speak even louder than Stewart's carefully scripted words and we, the audience, are invited to care.

This theatrical version, a distillation of several of the series' highlights, simply demands to be seen on the big screen where its literally brilliant, high-definition photography can be appreciated.

Pictures like these on the big screen are just not to be missed - Earth is gorgeous, and will make you fall in love with the planet all over again.

The statistics involved in the filmmaking are mind-boggling: 4,500 days of shooting with 30 camera teams in more than 200 locations around the world at a budget of $47 million.

For fans of wildlife programmes, Earth will be nothing new - it is, after all, a re-cut version of the BBC series Planet Earth - but this is a wildlife film at the very top of its game. No shot is less than dazzling, most are beautiful and many are stunning.
