Critic Reviews for The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (1)

This one's a corker: the cinematography is exquisite; it's admirably devoid of any overt anthropomorphism; the narration, while a little too mythical in context, is informative.

From Disneynature comes this well-intentioned yet hopelessly underwhelming documentary...

Reel Film Reviews

The G-rated film (despite its content shortcomings) works well as an educational vehicle for younger viewers.

The documentary rarely flinches, showing exactly how outside forces slip in and feast on the weaker flamingos. It's ghastly, but hey, that's nature.

The script is more mystical than factual - the subtitle is Mystery Of The Flamingos - which can be cloying to those of us raised on Attenborough. But this is still a breathtakingly beautiful reflection on the fragile nature of life.

The Crimson Wing is a Disney nature film. Be aware of this and all that goes with it and you might yet discover the ennobling documentary hidden beneath the wretched excess.

Audience Reviews for The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos

It was interesting, but like some other Disney nature films, I thought it was under-narrated. Also it's super sad! I know these things happen in nature, but it's like torture watching a little baby chick struggling to survive for 10 minutes straight.
