Storyline

This absolutely beautiful documentary on our World, its mystical beauty and miracles including slow motion footage of nature, animals, seasons, new life and daily beauties I've never seen nor imagined existed. The photography is sensational. The animal behaviour shown is incredible, beautiful and humorous. Never been a fan of nature documentaries, this blew me away. Written by Sue Taylor

Sappy muck
28 October 2016 | by JohnFilmfreakSee all my reviews

This is not so much a nature documentary, as a lesson in how NOT to make a nature documentary. It feels more like a student project made by someone who has seen way too many David Attenborough films, and try their best to mimic his style, without any of the talent.

That's not to say it's all bad: The cinematography is quite astounding at times, and there are plenty of images which will leave your mouth agape.

But the hamfisted voice-over is nothing but a constant stream of on-the-nose awkwardness, the forced segways constantly pull attention to themselves, and the incoherent story-lines break every rule of storytelling. And to top it all off, it ends with an unbelievable bad final scene showing children dancing in slow-motion to an absolutely horrendous soundtrack whose lyrics beats you upon the head with its message. It has the subtlety of someone crashing a plane into a skyscraper, and leaves you with just about the same feeling.
