The word bears repeating, so everyone from Andrew Weil to Stephen Hawking to Mikhail Gorbachev is here to speak the still-inconvenient truth. The filmmaking, however, is far more relentless than in that Oscar-winning Al Gore slide show.

The one film to see on this most crucial subject.

Premiere
As The 11th Hour's message of Profound Importance warrants a four-star rating, the film itself does not.

The Hollywood Reporter
An impassioned ecology-themed documentary that ultimately is more rewarding for informational than cinematic reasons.
67
This activist documentary -- alternately impassioned, despairing, edifying, and hectoring about all the ways humans are screwing up the earth in a death rattle of hubris -- shouts, People, do something! In contrast, "An Inconvenient Truth" feels positively hushed.

If you get through the first hour without slitting your throat, the cautiously optimistic last third offers some intriguing options.

The 11th Hour is a bit like "An Inconvenient Truth" at Woodstock: a little spacey, a little preoccupied with self-love and prone to the occasional freakout.

Perhaps the most sobering statistic in The 11th Hour: Some 50,000 species a year are disappearing. Someday, it might be humans.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Like any good religious sermon, it follows its scary vision of hell with a possibility of last-minute redemption.

Charlotte Observer
In the end, your reaction to "Hour" may depend on your feelings about humanity's collective common sense.

There's some serious food for thought here.
