IMAX: BORN TO BE WILD 3D
Born to be Wild 3D” is an inspired story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. This film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them—saving endangered species one life at a time. Stunningly captured in IMAX 3D, “Born to be Wild 3D” is a heartwarming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne Sheldrick, as they and their team rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild
IMAX Born to be Wild 3D is a huge title for a very charming but very short 45 minute look at two stories of animals that are raised by humans. This is very different and the Project Nim which you should also see. But these are orphans, in one case orangutans and the other elephants, whose mothers have been killed for one reason or another and they are raised by humans and then let back into the wild and the idea is to raise them with as little human interference as possible, which is probably not likely. But the animals themselves are wonderful. The 3D, you keep expecting to get sprayed by water by the elephants but you don’t, but your kids will love this. It’s just a little short. I mean, you’d really like to see more about the animals and less about the humans because the animals are really the story here. But having said that, your kids will love it. The photography is lush and I’m not sure what this is a story about. It’s really not about conservation per say, I suppose it may be kind of a, this is — we should leave the rain forest alone, but all of us know that. It’s really light on the social commentary and heavy on the attractiveness. But having said that, I will give it three and a half stars, it’s lovely.
