If you want to teach your kid about bears, there's probably a better PBS program you can find somewhere.

You gotta give paying audiences -- especially strapped family audiences -- more than this.(Full Content Review for Parents also Available)

The "nature" aspects of Bears are undercut by the need to turn this into a live-action Disney cartoon, complete with cuddly heroes and nasty villains.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

There's only so much editing can do to make a bear story seem like a human one, and the filmmakers (Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey directed) also go to unfortunate lengths to give human characteristics like laziness to the bears.

I'm not suggesting that every nature film narrator should sound like David Attenborough, but John C. Reilly really seems an odd choice.

The movie reduces magnificent, savage animals to the dimensions of a squabbling but loyal human family.

Bears works very well as an emotional story of survival and family. But at 77-minutes, it felt a little overlong.

Bears, the latest of Disney's Earth Day releases, might not win any awards, but it has the bare necessities of any terrific nature-doc: stunning images, arresting voice-over and a powerful story of survival.

The movie is so slick, so well-crafted and so beautiful, it's easy to forget that it was essentially made out of found footage.

With its touching story, beautiful scenery, and stunning camerawork, "Bears" becomes another worthwhile documentary in the Disneynature library.

Sincere and unexpectedly good, the film happily reintroduces another element of classic kids' movies: a tidy 77-minute run time.

So much about Bears is awesome in the classic sense of the word.

The best thing Disney does with its theme park millions is put them into these beautiful, kid-friendly nature documentaries

Amid its heaping serving of cuddliness ... the film doesn't sugarcoat the harsh reality and unforgiving elements with which the bears have to contend.
April 17, 2014
The devotion and persistence of these animals is a powerful reminder that family connections link all species. With this peek into their world, we are more aware of our own.

The Disneynature movies shouldn't be mistaken for traditional documentary, but if they act as a gateway drug for young children to learn more about the animal kingdom, then the films are serving a real purpose.
April 9, 2014
Surely some of the film's various incidents have been creatively stitched together from stray bits and pieces of footage, but its central conflict is an entirely organic one, and rarely is any offscreen string pulling distractingly evident.
April 17, 2014
Don't look for Disneynature's "Salmon" anytime soon.
