Bears is the latest nature documentary from Disney Nature, which is basically a reboot of their old True-Life Adventures series from the 1950’s. Honestly, there really isn’t much more to say about the movie than that. It features gorgeous cinematography of the Alaskan wilderness. It’s narrated by John C. Reilly. And it’s all about bears. So, if you’re like, really into bears, this will be right up your alley.
This will be a great thing to put on in the background of your next bear-themed social gathering. Otherwise, it’s pretty much a snooze-fest.
A little goes a long way with this kind of stuff, which is really better suited for a thirty-minute IMAX film at the local science centre than a feature-length film you pay $10 for, especially when Captain America is playing right down the hall. This was enjoyable enough for the first half-hour or so, but after that, the tedium became almost un-bear-able. I’m not sure I could bear to watch it again. Um…bears.
