Leonardo DiCaprio may still thrill female fans with his ice-blue eyes, but his environmental movie, The 11th Hour, has turned out to be the film equivalent of a sleeping draught as DiCaprio fails in his bid to out-scare audiences first traumatized by his enviro-mentor, Al Gore and his film, An Inconvenient Truth.
The film has done poorly at the box office, grossing only $417,913 from ticket sales in its first 18 days. Cinemas scheduled to screen the film will probably start to bow out and the mostly likely result will be a quick departure to the home-DVD medium.
The movie was criticized for its incomplete understanding of forest management and the impact that it can have on the environment by none other than Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace. The film has even been panned by those who support man-made global warming theory.
