Imax Filmed Entertainment,

Morgan Freeman, Birute Galdikas, Daphne Sheldrick

This IMAX 3D documentary is a stunning story of two amazing women in two distant countries. Birute Galdikas has studied primates and rescues them in the jungles of Borneo to be reintroduced to the wild. Daphne Sheldrick is attempting to save the elephants on the plains of Kenya and developed procedures like a special infant formula that makes orphaned elephants whose mothers have been killed by poachers thrive and grow to be released back to the herd. This stunning beautiful story weaves the two stories into a tale of wild animals and those that love and care for them and try to install a respect for those who watch this film.

This is certainly a very beautiful film, very well done, and excellently filmed. But the downside is the way the film flips back and forth from one story to the other. Then there’s the fact that it’s listed with a 40 minute run time which is pretty short, but I swear it was less than 30 minutes actually. The DVD I watched did not have any special features on it, and so the entire experience was very short. Still, it must have been a great experience to see this on a huge IMAX screen in 3D and witness the breathtaking scenery. On a small TV screen it was nice, but much was lost I am sure. If you’re a nature lover, by all means, go ahead and watch this, but there are much better nature films out there than this niche IMAX 3D film that doesn’t quite cut it on the rental DVD.
