Critic Reviews for Born To Be Wild
A terrific big-screen/3D film about the rescue of baby elephants and orangutans by dedicated humans introduces young people to a strong conservation ethic.
A decent weekend diversion, this IMAX documentary is cute enough to engage your kids, while teaching them the most basic lessons in ecological responsibility.
Their stories are touching and inspiring, but let's face it, the visuals are what make this movie. Born to be Wild takes you to places you've never been and makes you wish you had.
The hip soundtrack adds momentum, and the reassuring narration of Morgan Freeman lets us know these lucky orphans will have a fighting chance for survival after taking their first steps -- or swings -- back into the wild.
Audience Reviews for Born To Be Wild
Morgan Freeman: This story is like a fairy tale, except it's entirely true.
I feel that there may be too little to talk about here, as the film is both fairly self explanatory and only lasts for 40 minutes, but I will try my best. Born to Be Wild 3D is an IMAX nature documentary from Warner Bros. Pictures, which has been shot in 3D, using IMAX and 4K digital cameras. The film is incredibly simplistic, but effective in what it tries to show in such a short span of time. While very beautifully shot and interesting in its storytelling, the only dilemma I have is trying to distinguish whether it is truly a film worth recommending to see, given IMAX prices. The experience for viewing this film would be unique to such a theater, but I am not sure if there is enough that requires the attention of all audiences.

Gorgeous and truly touching. Anything involving elephants should be a four star slam dunk for me at minimum. So why stop at 3 and a half? The length is ridiculously short. The amount of footage not used must have been tremendous. Why not let the audience see more? Both subjects have had hour long documentaries done on them in the past. Let us see more of the antics.
A lighthearted, environmentalist romp that is sure to have the female audience saying, "Awww...they're so cute."
