  • Though African Cats is G-rated, scenes of animals chowing down on other animals are not for the faint of heart or delicate of stomach. I don't think it's suitable for those under 6, and they should be prepared for real animal behavior. But it's deeply involving and primally moving. show more

  • The cinematography and editing are as superb as the film's feline stars are photogenic and heroic. show more

  • Mostly, though, African Cats is extremely tactful about the truly harsh stuff that goes down in the world of nature. show more

    I Loved the movie and so did my 7 yr old daughter. Cinematography was beautiful and the story very real! my daughter was sorry about the cubs and the hiennas but I loved the realism. More movies like this should be made. I\'d like to see something on my favorite animal......the tiger.
