All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (2)

  • A cute story about the circle of life.

    October 18, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • A love letter to a gorgeous species that is increasingly in danger.

    October 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • From intimate shots beneath the feet of the giant beasts to underground footage, directors Stone and Deeble have made a movie that leaves viewers as much in awe of the animals as of the filmmakers' ability to capture remarkable moments.

    October 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Not as tonally stable nor as thematically cogent as it could have been, but it does feature some child-appropriate scenes of animals relieving themselves, having sex, and even dying.

  • Young viewers could certainly handle a few more harsh facts. Yet "The Elephant Queen" sets out, first and foremost, to use a narrative to build compassion. And here, a good story is as effective as a shout.

  • A gorgeously photographed and detailed portrait of an elephant herd making an arduous journey in search of water.
