4.0 out of 5 stars Best Paul Gross has ever written! Oct. 6 2005
Format:DVD
If you have followed the career of Paul Gross, then you have seen the witty/satirical and sometimes historic episodes he has written for Due South. This is unlike anything he, and his writing partner for this film: Frank Siracusa, have ever written: historic, political, dark, dramatic, and if you think on the repercussions of the plot: scary.
You don't need to understand Canadian, US, or Native American politics to watch this film. As "Yanks", my Mum and I had no problem deciphering the Canadian political repercussions written throughout the script. All is explained if you just listen to what the characters are saying and follow along with the plot(I will admit I had to watch it twice, having missed some things the first time around, because I was working on a project. I would recommend giving your full attention to the mini-series, so you get the full impact of the film).
You get a great feel of how deeply proud Paul Gross is of his Canadian roots in the speech he gives at the fantastic gothic cathedral - setting the tone for the film. If true, the repercussions that set the plot are frightening: the lose of water throughout the political lines in Canada and the United States, and the lengths to which a government will take to grab hold of its neighbors water supply in order to protect its own.
The cinematography is fantastic, showing off the beauty of Canada's back-country (what we "Yanks" call "the woods"), and Ottawa. The Parliament Building and Cathedral are some of the most stunning buildings highlighted in this movie.
The performances are well done. Paul Gross finally sheds his "good boy" image, as he slowly descends into dictatorship mania.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss this Political Thriller/Dark Satire July 5 2005
Format:DVD
This political thriller/satire is a joy for those of us who prefer the drama of ideas over car chases and explosions: although an explosion plays a key factor in the final plot twist of this excellent production. This Canadian miniseries is a doozy of a commentary on the politcal relationship between the USA and Canada and the politics of water: a resource even more primal and more sought after than oil.
It starts with the murder of the Canadian prime minister and his son's assumption to power,then careens through conspiracy, megolamania, a plan to drain the Great Lakes, and the breakdown of a stable country.
Elements of this miniseries remind me of "Dr. Strangelove" that great satire from the Cold War era. No one rides a nuclear warhead down to detonation, but the conspirators ride an equally insane plot to the unexpected, but not unbelievable end. Paul Gross does not "Sig Heil" with black leather gloves, but under the sohpisticated and glossy veneer, his character is as much a megalomaniac as Strangelove himself. Although Gross is the catalytic character, he is part of an excellent ensemble cast.
The director moves the story forward through a combination of flashbacks, and intercuts of people acting simultaneously in different locations It is skillfully done and easy to follow. Viewers in the USA, may find obscure some of the references to the First Nations and the separatist movement within French Canada: one follows the thought but misses the "colors and reverberations" around it.
H2O was engrossing because of the ideas expressed; I watched it twice immediately, but found none of the characters engaged my empathy with the exception of a police officer doomed to die early in the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite must-see: it's underappreciated! Jan. 22 2006
By Olivia
Format:DVD
Okay, so I rented this movie because of Paul Gross and Callum Keith Rennie (of whom I knew from "Due South"), but let me tell you, H2O is NOT a light movie. It's a heavy political thriller that is not as predictable as what you may think. Even if you're not into politics, it doesn't matter! It will still interest you, nonetheless, with its unraveling plot and beautiful cinematography. I don't want to give too much away, but although politics plays a large part, there are a lot of other hidden issues such as moral implications. I expected a mediocre movie, but to my benefit, was greatly surprised and responsive. I'm not much for buying any entertainment unless it really hits me (I own like what? 5 movies?), and since I didn't get the full jist of it the first time around (my fault, I had too much on my mind), I'm going to buy it for my collection and to enjoy it once again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film but depressing Oct. 3 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This was a fantastic film from the perspective of providing a complex and interesting storyline with Machiavellian twists, much more challenging than your average Hollywood movie, so well done to the film makers of Canada. However, the misuse of power portrayed and the environmental and globilisation issues raised can be highly depressing, so beware. Also, if you are planning to get this film because you're a fan of Paul Gross in the Due South series, DON'T - it's only going to destroy the glorious delusion of the perfect good man :-)
