5.0 out of 5 stars Terrifying, but also uplifting and motivating September 5, 2007
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful and important documentary. The film is full of terrifying images and fascinating interviews from some great minds. But, luckily, it does not spend too much time making its case about our destruction. After getting the viewer sufficiently terrified, the film shifts its focus to the causes of the problem. The film also inspires viewers to go out and make a difference (and tells them how).

Of course, comparisons will be made to An Inconvenient Truth, so I'll cover that too: it's clear that this project was always intended to be a film; it didn't begin as a PowerPoint presentation. It also doesn't waste time with a biography of it's narrator. But, most importantly, it's got a better mix of fear and inspiration; DiCaprio's film made me want to change the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH leaves off August 31, 2007
THIS IS NOT AL GORE,DEMOCRAT or let's say that!
THIS IS NOT A BASHING there is no excuse for anyone to not see it!

Anyone who follows the current trends in weather patterns,global warming,greenhouse gases and has seen 2006's Oscar winning AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH will not be a stranger to a lot of the material presented in this expertly crafted semi-doc narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio.What sets this film apart from it's predecessor is that real concrete solutions are brought to us and a great deal of the film concerns itself with renewable energy possibilities that are quite encouraging and challenging.If you want to do something more than what you have already done, then this film is for you.If you are a skeptic,go see it anyway and maybe this time you might be convinced that something IS terribly array with The Earth.

Yes, I am as "green" as I have been able to be in the last year (which has done wonders for pocketbook and self esteem!). This film takes you even further. If the future life of this planet is of any concern to you, THE 11TH HOUR will give you hope and determination to do all that you can reasonably do in order to hold back the hands of time from striking 12!We are the generation that can do something great instead of the generation that sees our planet extinguish itself.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FILM.DO NOT MISS IT!5 STARS because it is a solid and excellently crafted film.(Forget it's DiCaprio if you don't care for him.This is not TITANIC...or is it?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately no one saw this great film December 12, 2007
This film is leagues beyond the Al Gore film and does not have any politics riding it like a donkey either.

Is the planet warming? Yes. Is man the cause? Not 100% sure. Should we be way more responsible with the environment regardless? You better believe it!

This film is not just some scare tactic movie with charts and graphs guilting you into buying a hybrid car. This film brilliantly proposes a fundamental shift in humanities overall attitude and approach towards just about everything.

I could not help think of Star Trek and feel hopeful for our future provided we stop fighting, come together as one people and see ourselves as a single race of humans on a single planet rather than a bunch of disparate peoples arguing over semantics while inefficiency is the norm.

The future is now people. We can all change our ways almost effortlessly while saving ourselves money as well. Simple changes will collectively have a huge impact on the world and will send a powerful message to the business world that we want change for the better now.

I personally have a very small car and have switched my home to energy efficient light bulbs. I also now use my own bags in stores when I shop. This has saved me money with little expense up front.

No need to debate global warming. Making changes for the better is simply the right thing to do, and as stewards of this planet there is no time like the present.

Do we have "all the time in the world"? We never do. The clock is ticking, and so live well. In this profound assemblage of sweeping themes and smart people, we are reminded how lovely, how lovable, how tragic and how complicated life is now on Planet Earth. "The 11th Hour" transcends the genre of environmental movie; it takes on LIFE as we know it. It is a collage, spliced together to great effect with a fantastic soundtrack, an homage to the globe as we know it today, in 2007. It may be the best human document of the year -- and even of the decade (we'll see). "The 11th Hour" brings together threads that in so many other works remain disparate. Here, the collective tapestry is compelling, tying together plants, animals, biodiversity, food, population, immigration, migrations of all sorts, global climate change, pollution, politics, religious strife, war, conflict, the human will and the human spirit and what it will take to counter these challenges, to reverse the tide of dangers we face.

The selection of talking heads is stellar, and there are 55 interviewees cited in the credits, ranging from Stephen Hawking to Paul Hawken to Jerry Mander to Paul Anderson to Hermann Daly to one of my ultimate environmental heroes, David Suzuki, who, in my mind, provided several of the most evocative moments in the film.

Perhaps the talking heads are not household names, but this is not a film of, by and for nerds. It may be of and by nerds, but it really is for anyone who loves the planet and is looking to connect with the best minds and the best innovations in which we may realistically base some hope for improving things soon and in the near future.

Not all is gloom and doom in "The 11th Hour.

Naive and simpleminded documentray. No mention of human overpopulation.
I watched your Bartlett lecture video and was confirmed in my fears of our near future. Fantastic, clear and easily understood math. The mathematical expectation of Boulder's population increasing to L.A.'s in so short a time is mind blowing. But DiCaprio's movie and most of humanity is addicted... Read more
