Movie Reviews

Eerily Amazing
B. Wise | Bouse, AZ USA | 03/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This show, along with the National Geographic Channel's Aftermath: Population Zero, both bring across the interesting concept of what life on Earth would be like after Humans disappear from the face of the earth, though in the case of both these shows there is no explanation of how we disappeared and only that it was basically overnight. In any case, this and its consort both propose an idea which I myself find intriguing in the one of the most terrifying ways. A must see as well as something I simply could not take my eyes away from while watching it.
This one by the History Channel shows more over a broader range of years since our disappearance, and for a few of the earlier ones compares them to current examples that exist (i.e. 20 years to the land around Chernobyl).
All else I can say is that this is a MUST SEE!"
Very objective vision of one possibility...

"I really enjoyed this objective, well-researched and thoroughly explained account of what would happen to the earth if mankind were to disappear. To me, it's not important how this happens, as that would be another film (or several) entirely. This one is about what the results would be on earth if this happened. It does not delve into the causes, but rather the effects, which I thought was enough for any 2-hour program. I was impressed by how well the visuals complimented the dialogue. I didn't feel sad about the loss of mankind's knowledge or achievements- who would they be passed on to, and would they be able to be understood, and would this knowledge only contribute to a faster demise of a future civilization? No, it's up to future beings to develop in their own way. It's good for us to occasionally be reminded how insignificant and expendable we all are. A little humility is not a bad thing!"
Food for thought

"I watched this video on the History Channel. It presents a realistic view of what earth will look like and become after man has managed to destroy himself. Makes you realize just how much we have manipulated earth to suit our needs. Sad to think that everything we've done will be lost and have to be discovered all over again, if human life re-emerges,
at some point in time. The movie doesn't give much hope of preserving
anything between the cock roaches and micro-organisms feeding on and changing the composition of all man made materials. This video will
definitely cause you to think about what really matters."
Fascinating documentary
J. Mayer | San Jose, CA United States | 04/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an imaginative documentary on what might happen to all we have created if people simply disappeared. This is a not an environmentalist video - it doesn't advocate people dying off nor does it explain why we vanish - it is more from the engineering/biological standpoint: what would happen to world famous landmarks if they were abandoned, how would domestic animal adapt (or not), what would happen to animal pests we fight off now? For the armchair engineer/biologist, it is imaginative and fascinating. Combines the talent of leading structural specialists, biologists, and convincing CGI optical effects from Industrial Light and Magic."
