Incredibly moving. Even if you don't have a three-story screen in your home, the film still works marvelously.

Does a remarkable job of putting the viewer right with elephants in the Kenyan savannah and orangutans in the lush jungles of Borneo.

It's entertaining, poignant, educational (at least for kids), inspirational, and certainly beautiful to look at.

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.

Few will be unmoved by the two women's courage and persistence, though Morgan Freeman's intoning voiceover is less persuasive.

A nice family outing, this, but those after an in-depth discussion had better look elsewhere.

It's just 40 minutes long, but in that short time it produces more "awwww" moments than any feature-length film to hit theaters this year.

In Born to be Wild, the milk of human kindness nourishes the animals. And the audience.

'Born to Be Wild' is one of the finest films of the year. Anyone who ever has loved an animal in a wild environment (or, for that matter, shared a home with one) must see this extraordinary movie about animal rescue.

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and Morgan Freeman's voice.

Decent Films Guide

I'm a fan of the diorama approach [to 3D], but Born to Be Wild makes the case that a nature documentary in IMAX 3D can and perhaps should bring us as close to the action as possible.

David Lickely's work as a director is impressive and intimate, and the use of the 3D helps make it feel like you're there in the environments with these animals.

What it lacks in length, the 45-minute movie makes up in entertainment value.

This may make me sound like less of a man, but I'm going to say it anyway: Born to Be Wild is by far the most adorable movie I've seen in the theater in a long time.
