Educational footage, misfitting narration
25 January 2015 | by benjaminluptonSee all my reviews

I still give this 10/10 as it is a must see movie for the practices of Australia. However, when compared to Joaquin's compassionate and moving narration of Earthlings, the narration of Lucent is not compassionate and moving but sensationalised and excited, like an arrogant 60 minutes news reporter.

The movie could have been reduced by about 1/3 of the length at least. It dragged on, and the clips of the activists woven in was not fitting of the progression of the story - they could have been left out, or shown during the credit sequence as a call to action perhaps.

I just wish they did this with the editing and compassion that Earthlings followed, instead it is just like a long 60 minutes piece with more graphic footage and true events.

Despite this, it's still worth putting on for doubters of Australia's practices, as well as for informing yourself.
