It's a good documentary with some breathtaking photography. The message is important, depressing as it may be. Actually quite an emotional watch, showcasing humanity at its worst, but it's good to see some people standing up against it - even though they are risking their lives by doing so. Heartbreaking to realize this is still very real and going on today. On a technical level I think this documentary could have been a little shorter while maintaining the same powerful message.

The kind of documentary that at the end gives an internet link to find out how you can help the cause. That's some dedicated people working to save the national park and the last gorillas living there. The most exciting part of the documentary is the war footage they caught. Some hardened cynical part of me wants to say "Some species are on the brink of extinction? You don't say...". "There are armed conflict in Africa and foreign businesses are involved? Who could have known...".

Incredible. Speechless.

It is beautifully and courageously shot, marginally breathtaking and radically insightful. It shows us the naked truth: Today's world is governed by conglomerates, which will do anything possible -even ignite civil war- to reach their goals. Still it leaves us with a feeling of 'Oh, dear'. It is a shame that all we can do is to watch it.

Is Virunga a good movie because it is beautifully shot, because it features interesting characters, because the setting in the Congo is intriguing? Or is it to be judged primarily by how effectively it makes its points. Obviously, the art informs the effectiveness, but the filmmakers don't want us to casually toss off Virunga as a pretty movie with a point to make. They want us to help save Virunga National Park.

Pretty powerful all around with excellent photography and editing. It's an unfinished story because it's still happening. Some pretty demoralizing moments showing people at their greedy worst. But there is light, as well. Good show. Deserves its nomination.

Fascinating, the blend of naturalism, corruption, and conquest makes for an engaging narrative, and the heart of this film is broad enough to appeal and yet deep enough to matter.

This doc does a very good job of elucidating a complex geopolitical premise and also sells its human vitality. It turns out colonialism has both changed and stayed the same in the Congo, and foreign institutions are still down to bilk it for all its resources and leave it a violent mess in the process. The film is overall a little too unfocused, with maybe one character too many to whom we continually return but it's understandable given how contrived the dynamics between all the parties are.
