Critic Reviews for Disneynature Bears
Sincere and unexpectedly good, the film happily reintroduces another element of classic kids' movies: a tidy 77-minute run time.
"Bears" could have used a lot more science; more substantive information in the place of wacky one-liners. Still, the images trump everything.
Bonus points for all but eliminating the easy scatological humor. Does a bear (poop) in the woods? You won't find out watching "Bears."
There are grittier nature documentaries out there, but "Bears" is simple and effective, and delivered with that friendly Disney touch. Its intent is to make you say, "awww," and it does its job well.
All this is heartwarming, in a bloody, ursine-centric way.
Audience Reviews for Disneynature Bears
Charming and awe-inspiring, Disneynature continues it's streak of beautifully filmed nature documentaries with this adorable and pleasant look at the lives of a family of three bears. Rating: 82
Disney's latest nature doc follows two bear cubs through their first year of life. Great footage of these magnificent beasts prowling the Alaska wilderness, but the anthropomorphic commentary gets so cutesy you sometimes wish mama bear would go GRIZZLY MAN on narrator John C. Reilly.
I never really know how much to say about these Disneynature films. They are not insufficient enough to call them mild distractions, as the footage is generally great, the voiceovers are fun, and there is enough work done to build a narrative that I can get behind what they have to offer. It generally amounts to having a chance to see animals that kids generally grow up being intrigued by and having a new perspective that can be formed by families, in regards to those animals. African Cats worked for me, as it was neat to see a big screen documentary about lions, with the bonus addition of Samuel L. Jackson providing narration. That film also worked due to the stakes that, manufactured or not, presented a real life depiction of what lions go through. Bears finds a way to create similar stakes, which makes the film effective enough in what ultimately amounts to a large format way to see bears in action. read the whole review at thecodeiszeek.com
