This is one IMAX film that doesn't overdo the narration or the drama, but it's also a pretty laid-back documentary which could be watched on TV %u2013 it doesn't have the movie-making excitement of, say, Deep Sea 3D.

It opens up a little corner of the world that even casual observers had long ago heard about but have rarely seen.

Will you go ape over this movie? Well, it probably won't have you swinging from the trees hooting it's praises, but it's definitely worth taking a look.

It is interesting and fun to see Goodall and her chimpanzees on the bigger-than-life screen.

Both a beautifully made nature film and a tribute to a woman whose passion for this region and its inhabitants still shines in her quiet blue eyes.

Overall, interesting as a documentary -- but not very Imaxy.

There's enough science to make it count as educational, and enough beauty to make it unforgettable.

The film gets close to the chimps the same way Goodall did, with a serious minded patience, respect and affection.

...the one thing this Wild film has that other Imax films don't: chimps, lots of chimps, all blown up to the size of a house. That's fun for kids of any age.
| Original Score: 4/5

[W]hile long on amiable monkeys and worthy environmentalism, Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees is short on the thrills the oversize medium demands.
