The Meerkats Reviews
Beautiful cinematography, altho the abundant golden hue for most scenes is to much after a point.
The Disney magic still abounds, even with the subtle music - that of course morphs into a lion king homage.
Funny, the Disney parallels you notice after some time..
3.5 out of 5
Although I understand many of the scientific/naturalist criticisms around whether or not this is a pure nature film, I think that the storytelling and "humanistic" component helps to connect our similarities with other animals in the animal kingdom, and thus provides not just a window into the lives of the Meerkats, but also tells us a little bit about ourselves, about family and about life in general.
Definitely worth watching.
