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.
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.
Fresh: "Before the Flood" is neither dull screed nor stat-heavy pamphlet, thanks largely to the questing intensity of its marquee guide.
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.
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.
We need to wake up
This is an excellent documentary. Thank you Leonardo for this and your interest in this topic. I live in Florida, a transplant from New York and I can testofy that there has been a change in climate. For those naysayers that do not show an interest ineducating yourselves, start with this documentary. I think the mayor of Miami sait it best when he said that global warming was not a Republican or Democrat. Sadly the amount of misinformation is winning but that is not going to stop the fact that Floirda is one of the states that will be most affected. We better wakeup. Our leaders need to educate themselves and stop playing politucs with our future.
