Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Hypnotic slo-mo images of honeybees flapping their wings are about all that distinguishes the docu Vanishing of the Bees from a well-researched article on its subject.
Fresh: Fascinating subject expertly covered.
Rotten: There's little form to the structure, the editing is amateurish and the narration is puerile. It's a worthwhile subject - but the film is too poor to justify a release.
Fresh: Its US focus is disappointing considering the global issues, the sound mix is terrible in places, there's some iffy animation.
Watch this film!
This movie is not only compelling and entertaining to watch, but tells an urgent story about our food system and our planet. Not to BEE missed!
Great documentary that really gets in depth at how we are destroying are little furry wing friends and how we can work together to solve this alarming problem.
This movie is a bunch of anti-big business, romantic claptrap about the environment.
