The Telegraph by

This is a film about human flaws. It should not be missed – whatever your views on Greenpeace.


Variety by Dennis Harvey

Jerry Rothwell’s film focuses engagingly on the human dynamics, particularly the role of late leader Bob Hunter.


The Globe and Mail (Toronto) by Kate Taylor

Whatever you think of Greenpeace’s less well-considered antics over the years, How to Change the World is a compelling story of one environmentalist’s remarkable combination of prescience, grit and timing.


The Guardian by Leslie Felperin

There’s no missing the polemical points being made or doubting the film is meant to inspire further action, but even hardened whale-eating oil oligarchs are likely to be charmed by the idealism and smarts of these audacious activists.
