    Bears are godless killing machines plain and simple. They are the greatest threat to american freedom and prosperity. They lie cheat kill and steal whatever they please. But no the lame stream media says that bears are only agressive if they feel "threatened" or "are protecting their safety" This is a load of crap. If you feel so threatened maybe you should have five in claws and stand eight feet tall. Oh wait bears already do. This film also proclaims that the bear cubs are harmless creatures being protected and cared for by their mothers. Well sir I say that when that bear grows up and flips your camper van over and steals all of your food you will get no sympathy from me.
    This film lies.

    The Disneynature movies shouldn't be mistaken for traditional documentary, but if they act as a gateway drug for young children to learn more about the animal kingdom — and to open themselves up to more informative non-fiction cinema — then the films are serving a real purpose.

    Sincere and unexpectedly good.

    The new Disneynature film lacks the fortuitous plot turns found in previous Disney documentaries, resulting in some awkward (and possibly deceptive) editing. But the movie has a strong protagonist and impressive footage, and the educational core is unsullied.
