  • After seeing these natural wonders, the elaborate special effects of such films as The Hulk and The Matrix Reloaded will seem like cheap parlor tricks.

Audience Reviews for Winged Migration

    Winged Migration works because words are kept out of it. Rather than having a mind numbing narration that doesn't really add to the drama, we just have the biirds..and all kinds of them attempting that they had done oodles of time previously in cross crossing the planet as a matter of survival.

    I liked the birds that ran on the surface of the water the best, they were so funny.

    Odyssey three years in the making, amazing experience, impressive and moving, the main focus to portray the grandeur of birds in general. An intimate, poetic portrait that conveys the majesty of all birds.

    A crisp documentary about the migration patters of birds. While this movie deserves all the praise in the world for the amazing cinematograhy, I wshed for a bit more contextual narration to actually learn something about what I am looking at. Still, if you are into documentaries, camerawork, bird or nature you should not miss this one.
