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.

TRULY AWESOME!!! The scenes are breathtaking, we were sooo impressed! This is a must see for families! I have 3 children and they all enjoyed it! It is done very tasteful, keeps you involved but not to much information! Truly great piece, look forward to seeing it again in the near future!

Ultimately, this is a universal story about how these wild mothers, like their human counterparts, sacrifice again and again - all to make sure their children are happy, healthy and well fed. Full Review

May be Disney's most pointedly feminist effort since "Mulan." Full Review

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. Full Review

This is Disneynature's third and best release, after 2009's "Earth" and 2010's "Oceans." With its compelling narrative of survival, it will probably be the one that most enthralls audiences. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Despite its family-friendly trappings, "Cats" is largely serious stuff; deliberately paced, thematically dark and often wistfully told, with enough moments of survival-oriented tension and dread to question its G rating. Full Review
