Despite the advent of science, literature, technology, philosophy, religion, and so on -- none of these has assuaged humankind from killing one another, the animals, and nature. UNITY is a film about why we can't seem to get along, even after thousands and thousands of years.

Surprisingly incoherent and boring
Slow pace in the most part of the movie.
Fresh and Exciting
It is encouraging that the film ends so strongly.Otherwise, it wouldn't have been a particularly memorable film
Alright, what is this NASA teaching in second scene? Even "It's one step for the man.." sound appear and scene from "Moon Landing" when most people simply knows that "Moon Landing" was a job of Stanley Kubrick who was kinda forced to do it for state. Further, we see only CGI's in scenes(after cows in beginning) and horendeous propaganda of all kind. Even "I do support freedom to marry" scene from gay protest is shown. -It starts awesome but after cows slaughterhouse scene, harsh propaganda and social conditioning is permanently there. Not only narration speaks to us like this documentary is for children's with special needs but, we also have a hard core promotion of SJW'sm, Liberalism, freedom of all kind("Do What Thou Wilth" Satanic type) and promotion of New Age in this documentary. Not even close to Earthlings who's almost 10/10 This documentary can get 2/10 in best wish.
First I have to say that I am an optimistic and idealistic person who is normally not squeamish. And with that attitude in mind I was looking forward to the release of "Unity" for the last 2 years.Sadly I am more than disappointed having watched the 1 hour 36 minute long movie. Repetition over and over, the editing is okay, the music alright, the sound mixing is bad (but maybe that is down to my hifi system), one can sometimes not understand the narrators, but the message is an complete idealistic nonsense.*SPOILER* I mean, of course uncontrolled ego is bad, war is bad and to harm other beings is bad and to eat meat and fat is bad, too. But does one have to see a bowel surgery for more than 30 seconds to understand that? Do you have to watch war scenes without end to understand that? It is a shame that a movie with such a potential was literally lost in space. Besides that there are all over repetitions which really get on ones nerves. Many questions are asked but only little answers are given. What is love? .... What is the meaning of life? What is ego? and so on...And I know, that are big questions, but what is the point of asking these questions without really giving an answer or at least to speculate in a more philosophical than an esoteric way.For example: What is love? My guess is: Love = Care Very simple and in a nutshell what the filmmaker probably once to say. But it drags on for more than 10 min to get to that point. Couples of different ages are shown who are kissing each other. Sometimes a couple of gay men is shown and and clips of animals cosing each other. But is that the only way to show love?I really was very curious about that movie, but it was really not good.What also disturbed me was the repetition of earthlings, yes, that movie in which you look for 90min, how animals are butchered or tortured. Most people who watch that movie are vegetarians or even vegans and do not really like to see that, or am I wrong?... Well, it turn me at least in a conscious very rarely eating meat person. But way do you have to watch that in "Unity" all over again?Resume: After having watched the movie, I now have to abandon my ego (delete this review), love everything (kiss everyone and anything) and get my consciousness sorted out (before I die and no one told me how to do it). Hmmm...
Compelling, eye-opening, heartbreaking, beautiful, truthful and above all, necessary. Everyone needs to watch this. From the very first seconds of the film, your heart pauses...it breaks, it aches and your mind races. It will take you on a journey of self-discovery, examine your moral code, reconsider behaviors you took for granted and force an introspective review of your life. It puts perspective to the relative minute importance of humans, yet the impact our selfishness and arrogance has had on fellow earthlings and our planet. The film will make you cry, it will anger you, sometimes it will be extremely hard to watch but you won't be able to stop watching. This documentary is fuel for THE social movement of our times, it is hope for our planet and humanity.
I was a huge fan of Earthlings, and Unity comes from the same people so I had high hopes for Unity, and it did not disappoint. I have just returned from the premier and was a sell out, which is rare on a Wednesday evening. I would comfortably say this has to be the best documentary I have seen, and takes the number one spot on my list. The documentary attempts to explain we come from the same place and are all one, so why do we will each other.I would highly recommend seeing this thought provoking documentary. This was the only movie I have been to that people have stood up to clap.
