    This film is truly amazing. Disney should get an award for this. It's a true gift from disney. Anyone who watches this film is lucky to experience the incredible close-up view of these animals in the wild. Because I am an avid animal lover, I did have to cover my eyes once or twice. But I know that confrontations between the animals are just the unfortunate reality of the situation. Thank You Disney. Collapse

    This movie was amazing, it captivated me right from the start. I learned alot from this film. I never really realized how tough it was to live in the wild before this film. Samuel L. Jackson was a perfect narrator for this film. This movie definitely does not deserve a 61 as the critics average out on. I didn't see a negative thing about this film, it wasn't long, and it wasn't incredibly short, it got its point across and it did it well. Lions and cheetahs are beautiful creatures. This was an amazing film, disney nature keeps on delivering, Earth was great, Oceans was excellent and African Cats was captivating. I can't wait for next years Chimpanzee, monkeys are my favorite animals too haha, I give African Cats an overall 10/10. This is definitely worth a blu-ray purchase when it comes out. Expand

    This Earth Day release has honorable intentions, but it imbues the animals with human emotions and motives, which only muddies our understanding of these ferocious feline species.

    Ultimately, this is a universal story about how these wild mothers, like their human counterparts, sacrifice again and again - all to make sure their children are happy, healthy and well fed.
