  • The new Disneynature film lacks the fortuitous plot turns found in previous Disney documentaries, resulting in some awkward (and possibly deceptive) editing. But the movie has a strong protagonist and impressive footage, and the educational core is unsullied. show more

  • It has lighthearted moments, but is also suspenseful at the right times. show more

  • A three-act story narrated by the affable John C. Reilly is grafted onto one “How’d they get that?” shot after another. show more

    This is not a film worthy of Disney. Story line is weak, you've seen better on TV. Which is where this firm will land. The narration is particularly bad, geared only for the young viewer. Disney you can do better.
