Some great footage, exploring very beautiful and exciting places. I especially enjoyed the Grand Canyon and Alaska (sighhhh...)

Movie Reviews

Pass on this one!
R. R. Morris | Easton, Pa USA | 06/07/2008

"The crew who put these shows together must have been hired from the MTV music video crew. The nauseously 'stylish' shakey cameras; the antiquated, jerky, strobe, 1980's "Max Headroom" effects; the "Matrix" speed-up flying camera effects; and the constant, hyperfast changing edits; allows little or no room to truly enjoy the High-Def scenery pulsated before your eyes! This kind of pace may be good for a 3 minute music video, but not for a 50-some minute documentary. They are trying way too hard to be 'cool'. Perhaps some prefer this style.
This is no "Planet Earth" series by any means. The small selection of CGI clips are repeated over, over, and over agian, many of them reapear in all 6 episodes. Spiced with sand and water-surfing, bicycle-riding, rock climbing (with climbers who always manage to drop-a-rock every climb) to add 'action' to the documentary. There are and will be more truly jaw-dropping, scenic and informative documentaries in HD to enjoy. Go for those. I have, and enjoy many documentaries of all types, these are the worse of all."
Very disappointing

"Good idea shame about the direction!
The films look fantastic but the director decided to show large chunks of the scenery at very fast speeds leading to a combination of bewilderment, motion sickness and real disappointment. The director/producers are idiots."
Gormless Planet, more like!!

"There is little enough material of substance appearing on the new and much
lauded blu-ray medium, so as a fan of documentary and "Natural World"
video in High Definition, I was delighted when "Fearless Planet" was announced, and the summary suggested it was just what the video doctor
ordered. I added it to my "must buy" list without delay.
What a bitter disappointment! I can only say that this offering must
certainly qualify as the very worst DVD I have yet endured, in any medium
and in any degree of definition. It is so bad that neither my wife or I
could watch it for more than a few minutes at a time.
Film quality and definition are obviously superb -- on the very odd occasion when the hapless viewer is permitted to view any frame or topic for more than a few brief milliseconds. The poorly constructed commentary
is delivered in a leaden monotone. The mindless zooming in and out of
focus, accompanied by maddening "swooshing" sound effects, becomes totally irritating after a few minutes.
One for the garbage bin, I fear. An immediate refund would be the next logical requirement!
