Set against a majestic
Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, a bear family's journey begins as winter comes to an end, and they emerge from
hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting -- but risky -- as two impressionable young cubs' playful descent down the
mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown
bears must work hard to find food -- ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run -- while staying safe from rival male
bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf pack.
Documentary - Like Disneynature's previous films,
this is a nature documentary aimed
at the whole family, especially
kids. There are some moments of
bear fighting that may be intense
for very young kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Despite the visual splendor, it's difficult to get too enthused about Bears.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average "Bears" could have used a lot more science; more substantive information in the place of wacky one-liners. Still, the images trump everything. They can be both intimate and vast but they're always crisp, dazzling and a marvel to behold.
USA TodayFull Review Good If audiences can get past the notion of a raven leading a brown bear to a treasure-trove of salmon, Disneynature's Bears is an enjoyable and visually stunning romp through the scenic Alaskan wilderness with a small family of bears
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Good "Bears" is a story of triumph and family. The spectacular cinematography, the sometimes silly and sentimental narration, and the alternately cutesy and menacing score are all used to showcase the dramatic lengths the wildlife kingdom's most famously protective mother will go to provide for her cubs.
