Pleasant, run-of-the-mill documentaryBy Chrisaljack (419 reviews) from Hellingly , 08 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Pleasant, run of the mill, wildlife documentary. Disney's recent nature films have not produced anything like the quality of their '50's and '60s True Life Adventure docs such as Water Birds and African Lion which were much more gritty and humorous in their approach. David Attenborough's BBC TV documentaries put this into the shade.
Disney at its bestBy Skate7 (1 review) , 21 Jul 2013If your not a big cat lover you will be after watching this documentary! I wasn't to keen on watching it because I thought it would be your run of the mill wildlife documentary but really glad I did, excellent camera work. Disney makes you feel true emotion towards these animals loved it :)
Highly recommended to animal loversBy PhilJdB (5 reviews) , 30 Apr 2013Definitely recommended. On bluray (on my 65' plasma) the pictures looked absolutely stunning. You'll know what I mean as soon as the film starts - some amazing shots with fantastic clarity. The aspect ratio is also full screen (not letter box). The film features some absolutely amazing scenes, but tells a story along the way too. I would consider re-renting this in the future.
Me biased? Maybe. But...By TunRae (2 reviews) , 11 Apr 2013I may be biased, because I absolutely love Cheetahs, but I found this movie to be a pleasant watch. A decent documentary, with a nice story to it. And seeing those little things shivering brought an 'awww' from my 5 year old daughter. I've seen more interesting animal documentaries but, again, this had a rather nice story in it, filled with some worries, some heart warming moments, and feelings of anger at the Hyenas. If you love Lions, or Cheetahs, watch this film. It will stay with you a while
Brilliant DocumentaryBy a customer , 01 Apr 2013When I received it I was not very keen on watching it but as I love watching similar programs on NatGeo and Animal Planet channels I thought I would give it a go and I am glad that I did. It is comparable to what you watch on the other channels but clarity of the movie is far better. I loved the episode of cheetah (Sita) where she saved her cubs from the lions and the courage she showed. Amazing!
Cute and cuddlyBy a customer , 18 Feb 2013A good film with lovely camera-work. The scenery was stunning and it's always wonderful to watch some of the big cats rearing their young. I loved it!
