    Synopsis


    Born to Be Wild
    Shot in IMAX 3D, David Lickley's 40-minute documentary Born to Be Wild observes various orphaned jungle animals and their day-to-day behavioral interactions with the individuals who rescue them and raise them to adulthood. The film unfurls in two separate geographic spheres. Half of it takes place in the rain forests of Borneo, where celebrated primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas assists baby orangutans; the other half takes place on the arid savannahs of Kenya, where zoologist Dame Daphne Sheldrick works with baby elephant calves. The goal, in each case, is not simply rehabilitation but the ultimate return of these animals to the wild, where (it is hoped) they will function freely and independently. Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman narrates; Drew Fellman produced and authored the script. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

      I was so excited and couldn't wait until I received the bluray, we received it on a Thursday and figured we would watch it on a Saturday night with the whole family, well it only last 40 min or so, nobody could believe it was over that quick, don't get me wrong it was great, but for a $20 bluray I expected much more! Everyone was a bit disappointed, seemed like we were just getting into it and BAM the credits start rolling

      This is probably the best 3D blu-ray I own to date. The documentary was filmed with IMAX 3D cameras so you don't have to worry about the black bars at the top or the bottom of your TV screen. I think this is what helps bring the picture to life and out of your TV. The documentary is very interesting, but like I stated it could've been at least another 30 minutes longer. But overall great doc narrarated by Morgan Freeman, and best 3D I've seen on my TV to date!

      Born to Be Wild was a great experience in the theater and wanted to own it at home to revisit these animals anytime. You can never have enough of a good thing, though, and I dearly wish this documentary was twice as long. It also would have been nice if there was a better package of behind the scenes featurettes and outtakes.

      I'm a sucker for 3d movies so I had to pick this one up. The 3d was top notch and some scenes were among the best I've seen, I've shown parts of this to people interested in the 3d and just about everyone is impressed. I only wish it was longer.

      I was sad when I missed this on IMAX, but happy I saw it at home - not much here, but the cinematography is gorgeous and I could listen to Morgan Freeman read the phone-book and be happy.

      Unbelievable 3D, too bad it was so short of a movie, interesting subject and great 3D. I bought this after reading another review and I have to say he didn't exaggerate in the least.
