Disturbing 1992 cinema PIF from Greenpeace, that friendly organization that just doesn't seem to quit.
There are many things that I find unpleasant, and watching a bunch of rich fat-cats is one of them. What we get here is some kind of strange, demented version of the board game Risk being played by some rich snobs who want to control the world. In between this, we get horrific visuals of nature and animals being destroyed, because all humans are evil, obviously.
In the end, it culminates with the fact that Antarctica is the only continent in the world untouched by man. "Let's keep it that way," they say. Really? So does that mean that we can keep polluting and poisoning every other continent on the planet? No questions asked? Thanks, Greenpeace!
Seriously, I feel like that whole Antarctica bit was just tagged on at the end. Wouldn't a better message be, "Stop ruining the world, morons. Thanks for listening."? Instead, it's just telling us to leave Antarctica alone and stop taking away its dignity. Not that we do. I mean, the Happy Feet movies are evidence of that.
Another thing - this PIF was rated U. Really? Utter destruction and chaos is suitable for kids to watch? They must have been really tough back in the '90s, I have to say. Either that or the BBFC were just having one big laugh, which is more likely, to be honest.
I suppose it is an effectively disturbing PIF, though. The visuals put me in mind of the EIA cinema PIF featuring that gun-wielding monkey, which is a good sign, bizarrely enough. Those fat-cats are pretty vile to watch, too. Throw 'em in the lion pit.
Oh, and look after the earth, too. Not just Antarctica. Why do I have to tell people this stuff?
