Description

The 11th Hour is the last moment when change is possible. Actor Leonardo DiCaprio produces and narrates this urgent and transformational look at where we’ve been, where we’re going and – most important – how we can change. Featuring ongoing dialogues of experts from all over the world, including Mikhail Gorbachev, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau and over 50 leading scientists, The 11th Hour reveals the most critical issues facing our planet today. Astonishing images of floods, fires, hurricanes, collapsing ice cliffs and mountains of waste juxtaposed with images of a sustainable future urge us to take action.

  • Could be a lot better - one for the kids

    Repetitive and boring. I mean Leo's put a tremendous effort to rounding up directors of societies and authors and professors, but a lot of these people express the narrative of burning fossil fuels and killing the planet with just their opinions and feelings. Too many outrageous opinions being expressed not enough compelling facts. It's a good film for kids and teenagers and maybe adults who've never thought about the climate change, but I feel that it's aimed at those already aware, so there's no substance to entertain and intrigue. It would be more interesting if Leo documented the footsteps and work of just one environmentalist's findings and concerns and captured the discussions of key issues. But all im getting from this film is that he's trying too hard and using his own self awareness as a pop film icon to present climate change as something new. Typical footage of disasters and freak acts of nature, but no exclusive accounts. In short there's nothing new here, and I find it annoying that somone's telling me to reduce my own carbon footprint while flying their own private jet around to do it. Better to watch this one on youtube with flat earth videos and a spliff.
  • Keep it real Leo!

    The black footprint on the earth says it all in one visual title, this film is fantastic and I am elated to have seen it. I am elated because there are people who think and act like my partner and I. We changed our lives, we live sustainably, respect nature and now work for a company that produces LED lighting solutions that are 60-90% efficient use of power, the first step is all to become efficient use of power. tell your friends about this film. We all need to act now!
  • A Great Film

    I really hope more people get to watch this, and we all become more aware, and begin to take the necessary steps to rebuild the foundation of destruction we have created thus far. A very good movie.
  • Good.

    Ignoring our impact on the planet is very like continuing to smoke despite having asthma. Stupid. Although this film may help spread awareness, I feel it spends too much time doom mongering, and not enough time discussing solutions.
  • Just watch it!!

  • Best environmental film in decades

    Hands down the best environmental film I've seen. DiCaprio does a stellar job of covering a huge range of topics (the only one missing in my opinion is a discussion on nuclear power). Manages to convey the urgency facing us while offering some truly inspirational ways of looking at our current situation. If I could make films and I did a documentary on the planet and our current situation, this is probably what I'd like it to turn out like.

    I think it's great that this documentary was made, because it sends out a message about the state the world is in, and how it is our fault that it is in that state. I think it takes someone famous like Leonardo DiCaprio to send out this message for it to be listened to. More documentaries like this should be made.
  • Watch and learn.

    Fear mongering at its best. Total, overt propaganda. By all means watch this film as it is a lesson in how dumb the internationalists/globalists think you are. Then go and research the topics shown, and do so with the eye and mind of a 'realist'. If your up to your knees in snow then its time to stop complaining about the heat! Go look.
