The only factual interest that gave me a different opinion of chimps throughout this whole film was when the female asked Nim to share and he did. Other than that I felt that this callous human dominated realm was repulsive and with no self reflection or compassion.(cept one man in the film) I think it shows the ugly side of man and being a person with active Hep C, I feel that I no longer want the treatment as apes should not be the slaves to our greedy selfish lives. If we want to torment and cause sufferage to life then it should only be towards our own mankind (which in fact are animals just the same ) I appreciated the honesty in the film but never felt that the humans learned anything. As long as humans feel superior and look at themselves above all other life on the planet earth I feel that no succesful progress can infiltrate this collapsing ecosystem that we face in the near future. As a rule I think knowlege should preach " What's good for all is good for one". I feel that all who were invovled in this process and how this movie profitted is a universal sin on a level far greater than human experience can be justified. This film represents the bile that human existence represents. Collapse

Absolutely heart-wrenching to see how humans can take a baby away from a wailing mother, traquilize gun her after they took away 6 other babies away also..for the sake of research to "train" him to be like a human?! Frickin scientists..thereAbsolutely heart-wrenching to see how humans can take a baby away from a wailing mother, traquilize gun her after they took away 6 other babies away also..for the sake of research to "train" him to be like a human?! Frickin scientists..there should be laws against this, and they should be charged with animal abuse. ..And how would they like to be thrown in cages to be tasered and experimented on? There should also be a ban against chimps used to act film as well. What gives us the right to take them away from their freedom and family in the wild? Imagine these actions were done to humans by another life form, taken away from their family and life, and made to be like the other life form? ..Something to think about... Expand
