"Wow, wow, wow! This is awesome. How can Darwin hold up his head after this? I mean, any fair-minded referee would call "Game over" by the time that Dawkins quote comes on-screen, saying, "Without gradualism, we are back to a miracle." But that's when the grand finale is just getting warmed up. It's like, "you ain't seen nothin' yet!" More arguments for design keep coming, one after the other, at a quickening tempo, like a dozen linebackers piling on a pipsqueak, till there is just no room left for him to breathe. Like Sternberg says, "by this time, you've left the improbability of a cell by chance way, way back in the dust" and yet the argument keeps growing."

"Darwin's Dilemma completes a trilogy of powerful documentaries, Unlocking the Mystery of Life, The Privileged Planet that Illustra Media has produced to establish the superiority of intelligent design over Darwinism. In many respects it is the capstone. It pulls together arguments from the other films, adds new ones, and climaxes with a resounding victory for design, while Darwin is left whimpering in the darkness, mumbling, "I have no satisfactory answer.""

"Darwin's Dilemma showcases the incredible talent at Illustra Media. A thought-provoking argument, powerful music, lifelike animation, excellent photography, compelling interviews, insightful editing, and remarkable pacing and flow… it is so good, calling it first class would be demeaning."
