Documentary or Science Fiction?
2 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To my mind this is pure science fiction without a plot or characters. Lots of nice computer graphics and narration, but completely visionary futurist projection with no practical application presented. In other words, there is no plan offered as to how to get there from here, which is the absolutely crucial part.

The narrator keeps saying "this will" happen and "that will" happen, but how? Where does the funding come from? How do you get people to all agree on the details? The reason we are approaching oblivion as a species is that, for some strange reason, we can't agree on things. Go figure.

And besides, I believe our problem as a civilization is that we believe technology is the answer when in reality it is the main reason we are in trouble. Our only hope is to downsize and simplify.
