Movie Reviews

"A Masterpiece" One land. One family. One struggle.
A. Triantafyllou | Canada | 10/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Breath-taking. Enlightening. Emotional. Touching. Pivotal. Humbling......A Masterpiece.

"Planet in Peril" erases all lines on the map. Africa is at our doorstep. China isn't so far way. Madagascar is not just a fantasy. The Amazon jungle is our forest. Greenland is in our back garden. A Breath-taking journey...

One land. One people. One family. One struggle.

The wildlife and animals on our beautiful planet are the most delicate of our creatures. They cannot speak literally, but through their beauty and sound we hear them all around us. However, day by day that universal "song" is becoming quieter. If we could no longer hear them, the silence and loneliness would break our hearts. We would be alone, and how frightening that would be.

Common sense would tell us that we would be next...

"Planet in Peril" conveys the striking contrast of the joy in perfect beauty and the sadness of perfect misery. To hear and feel the emotions as dear fellow humans, fellow family members, explain their fear, pain and sorrow over human losses that can never be compensated by anyone except God.

We should all be grateful that "Planet in Peril", took the time to document and show us the big picture of what is happening to our planet, to our home. To listen and learn. Humbly.

What we don't treasure we often lose.

"Planet in Peril" causes one to reflect upon the fact that we must wake up and realize we are the caretakers of this earth, it's our duty. Our sacred duty.

A Masterpiece...

"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives."
Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize 1952
Planet in Peril

"I was so taken with the program on CNN that I hoped I could then find it on DVD to give to my son-in-law for Christmas (they refuse to get cable). Thank you for making this available just in time for my Christmas gift list! It really is a good series ... highlighting the hot spots in the world and giving you a desire for more knowledge in many of the areas. How sad that we as a species are destroying what was a phenomenal gift ... all for the almighty dollar... which will have no value at all once we've destroyed all else!

Shipping was fast and the set is now all wrapped up to put under the tree ... Merry Christmas!"
Ineffably amazing and informative!!!

"From the very begining, It starts with the notion that can't be negated by anyone."

"Planet In Peril is a very informational and fascinating piece to watch. You're educated about the issues facing the planet and how it all relates to you. So you might say how losing species thousands of miles away doesn't affect you or how pollution and drought in another country doesn't affect you either, this will make you look at things a little bit different. Planet In Peril will open your eyes to the issues facing us and future generations, it will compel you to act and maybe even go out and buy compact fluorescent lightbulbs. This film is a wonderful piece of information that needs to be seen by every single person on the face of the Earth."
