  • One's confidence in factuality is weakened by a cliché-ridden narrative that reads Ma di Tau's mind during her buffalo hunt, and by incessant manipulation of the imagery-not only the use and abuse of slo-mo, but digital enhancement of colors in concert with an almost obsessive concentration on stalking and killing. show more

  • It's all very melodramatic, but the Jouberts accompany this story with incredible visuals, with an exceptional level of access. Considering how close they get to the animals, it's a wonder none of the filmmakers got mauled. show more

  • The result is a movie that may be geared to a nature film fan base but will also appeal to admirers of good storytelling. show more

    Beautiful cimena presentation. Beautiful background movie. A wonderful testament to saving our planet. Can one imagine the world without lions?
