Movie review: Generation Earth

Follow Dallas Campbell as he journeys around the globe exploring how mankind has changed the world using technology, determination, and creativity to transform our planet and in the process, our lives.

Host: Dallas Campbell

From mining to skyscrapers, oceans to deserts, we have changed the world in which we live. While most changes are born of necessity, some come to life from creativity. Even then, the ingenuity and inventions created to support monumental undertakings such as the Hoover Dam often overshadow the project themselves. In the process, we have drastically altered the landscape of our world. At times to live in harmony, but often by trying to recreate nature.

Camera work is very well done throughout the series capturing some large projects quite well. Scenery is wonderful and nicely used. Dialogue is simple and direct with neither too much technical detail or repetition. Sound is solid.

Those with an interest in some of the larger projects that have shaped the world, including those not often seen, should enjoy this series. Those wanting technical details or depth may be slightly disappointed.

Nothing here to limit audience age.
