This absorbing film...manages to pack a lot of information - and some real drama - into its 40-minute running time.
"Pandas" does its subject justice and is a reminder of the importance of protecting endangered species and preserving the environment when these values have fallen from official favor.
By the time it's all said and done, you don't just want to help save the pandas, you want to take one home with you.
The film creates an immersive experience with sweeping views of the mountains of Sichuan, but while the scenery is stunning, the focus stays on the bamboo-loving Qian Qian and her struggles in her new environment.
So visually dynamic that even the most pedantic (think Neil deGrasse Tyson level) skeptics will probably not mind listening to narrator Kristen Bell - speaking for writer-co-director Drew Fellman - rattle off 43 minutes' worth of cutesy panda trivia.
About as perfect as IMAX nature documentaries can get: informative, family-friendly, beautifully and immersively photographed, and so adorable that my scribbled screening notes are full of trenchant observations like "SO FUZZY!"
Enchanting, enlightening and educational in equal measure, this is one to go wild over.
Though dazzling to watch and almost unbearably cute (sorry) Pandas is infuriatingly spare with its facts and will leave kids asking questions.
Pandas, the latest large-screen doc, [is] which is just about everything you could hope for in a cute-umentary.
Beyond its awesome cuteness factor, "Pandas" dramatizes the benefits of cross-cultural cooperation, showing a path forward for similar endangered species.
Educational doc about scientists training pandas to go wild.
Hands down the cutest movie of the year.
