    The wildlife documentary One Life is a visually gorgeous, at times astonishing screen experience.

    The opportunity to see the stunning footage on the big screen is not to be missed, and the narration by Daniel Craig, delivered with James Bond-style drollness, makes it as much fun to listen to as to watch.

    Nature films don’t come any more spectacular than the BBC’s One Life.

    What's before our eyes suggests we share the planet with some amazingly strange beings.

    As much as Daniel Craig's narration can feel tacked-on, it's really secondary to the film's expert camerawork.

    The latest production from the BBC Natural History Unit is a typically eye-catching, years-in-the-making chronicle of animal life that is tainted by the urge to anthropomorphize.

    Beautiful slo-mo, up-close-and-personal cinematography abounds, as does an aggravating desire to turn its many subjects (and their plights to survive) into reflections of mankind.

    Quite a spectacle, and a nice family outing.

    Daniel Craig makes a decent fist of the narration. But you could also do without its gush about the “incredible journey” all beings on the planet share.
