Movie Reviews

  • you'll have a good idea of the annoyance level the comedian's narration provides
    2 of 5 by David Fear [Time Out New York ]
  • with visually stunning, almost impossibly intimate results
    by Andrew Barker [Variety ]
  • while the struggle for survival can seem like a battle, the script creates an unnecessary heroes-villains perspective
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • this squeamishness banishes all but the most vanilla facts and images
    2 of 5 by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times ]
  • the film's breathtaking visuals, and the brave and affectionate hearts of these beautiful creatures continue to draw us back in
    3 of 4 by Nell Minow [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • the film is not designed to answer every question but to inspire youthful curiosity
    3 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • the cameras are so close you assume they have to have been unmanned and placed with extraordinary luck
    by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine ]
  • the burden of massaging the natural-habitat footage into an intelligible rival-families narrative, though, falls to the voiceover script
    by Benjamin Mercer [Village Voice ]
  • the antagonism between the two tribes is pretty compelling, and a less condescending, fairy-taleish nature doc
    3 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • still makes you long for something a little quieter, something like the old "Wild, Wild World of Animals" television show
    3.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • silly non sequiturs, like "Don't forget the side salad," as the chimps revert to leaves after feasting on a dead monkey, feel childish and trite
    2 of 5 by Dan Hudak [Orlando Weekly ]
  • in "Chimpanzee," nature is beige in tooth and claw
    3 of 4 by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • by this time the uncredited narration, voiced in cornball fashion by Tim Allen, has made this turn of events seem like old-style Disney hokum whether it actually happened this way or not
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
