      ECB This show was so moving. The photography was amazing. The job that accredited Zoos are doing to help animals and to prevent extinction is something I was not fully aware of. A Wonderful educational 90 minutes. This is a great show for the family, I am coming back with my grandkids. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/09/20 Full Review michael Very interesting, educational and informative.Excellent narration with great photography. Understanding the issues that has caused extinction with so many species and having viewers see what accredited zoos are actually doing to preserve wildlife for the future is outstanding. Very well done documentary. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/09/20 Full Review Lesley The movie was educational and entertaining. This is a must see for children to learn more about extinction, I learned so much as an adult. It was truly enlightening. I havent walked away from a movie and thought about it after like I have a ton this one in a long time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/03/20 Full Review Tamara G This film was amazing. It was education, enlightening and beautiful shot. It reminds us on how we can help our planet and I left feeling uplifted. You must see this film while its still in theaters. Helen Mirrens voice is so perfect. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/24/20 Full Review SJC This is a real wake up call that everyone should watch! A nice selection of compelling stories and conservation success stories. There is still hope for many declining species! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/16/20 Full Review The dumbest movie that tries to justify the entertainment industry built on animal exploitation. It's very similar to movies about the benefits of smoking. It seems to be aimed at very uneducated people who cannot ask a simple question: "Why not make all the useful things for animals in national parks without cages?"

      Phil Hoad Guardian Already in the grip of this crisis, animals - and us - deserve better than this partial survey. Rated: 2/5 Sep 15, 2021 Full Review Stephen Romei The Australian Even with such criticisms, this is a movie about one of the most important issues of our lifetime... Rated: 3/5 Feb 16, 2021 Full Review Matthew Monagle Austin Chronicle This film may shed significant insight into zoological conservation efforts, but there is never any question of which institutions benefit the most from its version of history. Rated: 1.5/5 Oct 21, 2020 Full Review Shikhar Verma High on Films Alternating this insightful and eye-opening narrative about animal extinction is an agenda-driven pro-zoo advocacy that hammers its message of the ‘importance of Zoos and Aquariums’ to keep the ecosystem in balance. Mar 22, 2024 Full Review Matthew Turner Action Reloaded The film has a specific point to prove and often feels promotional in tone, but it’s also well researched and packed with both great wildlife footage and interesting information. Rated: 3/5 Mar 11, 2024 Full Review Lapacazo Magrira Sandoval New York Amsterdam News While Escape From Extinction may not present a comprehensive panorama, it effectively underscores humanity's pivotal role in shaping biodiversity and underscores the imperative for enlightened conservation efforts.
