[G]orgeously photographed, astonishingly intimate... We have never seen lions and cheetahs like this before; you won't believe it can have been possible for cameras to get so close without disturbing the animals they're watching...

The clarity of the footage is often breathtaking; watching the mother cheetah setting off on a run will have your own heart pounding in expectation.

It's Kiplingesque nursery ethology, and one distrusts the editing.

It is beautifully shot - the super slo-mo scenes of Sita running are amazing.

Some nice moments here, but this is a film that looks like a kids' TV featurette from an earlier age.

Of course the photography is second to none - no sense of hidden cameras here, more a feeling of cranes and on-set catering.

An attempt the dramatise the animal world which just feels cheap and unworkable. A drag.

Providing a feast of kills, confrontations and capering cubs while keeping on-screen gore to a minimum, nature lovers of all ages will get their fill.

Narrated by Patrick Stewart, this is beautifully shot if a tad toothless. Nothing to upset tots.

The wildlife is beautifully photographed, and the film is stentorianally narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart.

A wealth of visually stunning, strikingly intimate, and intensely dramatic footage of these creatures in their beautiful natural habitat.

The first entry in the DisneyNature series that's pitched at youngsters rather than a general audience, despite some intense footage.

In the animal kingdom's kill-or-be-killed world, the predators and prey are framed with a clarity and precision that would serve as an invaluable lesson to any aspiring cinematographer.

Granted, not even Morgan Freeman could make the African Cats narration endurable, but Jackson really suffers his way through it, alternating between cloyingly overplaying things and rattling off sentences in a bored monotone.
