Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This film promises early on to set itself apart by detailing specific things individuals can do to mitigate the environmental damage, but those suggestions end up being disappointingly few. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Oct 20, 2016

Fresh: "Before the Flood" may not tackle too much new ground, but given the sincerity of its message, its ability to assemble such a watchable and comprehensive account gives it an undeniable urgency. – Andrew Barker, Variety, Oct 21, 2016

Fresh: "Before the Flood" is neither dull screed nor stat-heavy pamphlet, thanks largely to the questing intensity of its marquee guide. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Oct 20, 2016

Fresh: Flood's filmmakers are intelligent in their use of the biggest asset they have: Not only do they keep their movie star onscreen, they work hard to tie viewers' concern for the environment up with his biography. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 22, 2016

Very informative

Great information that needs to get out there. So happy that it is free to the public. Climate change is the most important problem our planet faces.

An Amazing, Eye Opening, Heart Throbbing Film

This was such an amazing documentary. Having such strong feelings and emotions towards the health of our planet and the life that lives on it. I highly appreciate Leo using his voice to spread awareness about this important issue. I got very teary eyed through watching this and I think it is so important for people to start caring and getting involved.

Time to Change...

Well done in explaining what WE as the world need to do to save our planet.
