Set in pristine forests and waters in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, this film follows the story of a family of beavers as they grow, play and transform the world around them.

This is just great cinema! The visual imagery and superior 5.1 DDSS tell a great story about these fascinating creatures. The narration is kept to a minimum, though the compositions of Eldon Ratheburn add a dimension in music enriching this production. Andy Kitzanuk's photography with the vision of Stephen Low truly make the beavers 'spectacular'. Every minute of this film is dramatic in sight, sound, or story. The humor is just spontaneous. I can't fathom the effort, time and money that went to making this production. "The Making of..." sequence begins to touch on that. It is well worth the effort.
As an IMAX junkie, a father of two, and someone who loves nature, BEAVERS is time well spent. The kids love it, though I must admit, I have watched it more!! Few films in my DVD library are as entertaining for a group of professional thirtysomething adults too. I can't find a bad review on this one, and there is a definite reason. Enjoy it!!

This gem is a rare find and stands alone in its class. It held me captive all through the highly interesting and entertaining "making of" and a really cute silent movie they also tucked on at the end. If you have a good home theater system, the sound will blow you away. Gorgeous scenery is highlighted by the heart warming story of two beavers who find their perfect spot to build a dam and start a family. Superior camera work both above and under water reveals the secret lives of these fascinating and hard working rodents. This is neither a boring documentary nor an over-dramatized or cutsified depiction of these animals: they don't need either, simply because they are perfect just the way they are. I feel very lucky and deeply ingratiated to the people who took the time to make this incredible film and can't thank them enough!

In looking for the top rated IMAX DVDs to get for Christmas this one repeatedly came up as a five star just about everywhere I looked, and was never less than four stars. If you're an IMAX fan, outdoor/animal lover, or just want very high quality entertainment for your home, then you must consider adding this film to your collection. Its not just a kids film either, all of the adults in our family enjoy it just as much as the kids do.

A realy great IMAX-Movie with wonderful pictures and a clearly separted 5.1 Dolby Digital sound. You can hear wispering beavers and how the trees are falling. The making off section shows the hard work of the film team, because beavers don't like animal training. Having fun with this movie.

This documentary is not only educational but at times very amusing and entertaining. The sounds and the music are great and the underwater cinematography is just spectacular.

If you love nature and documentaries, this is G-rated Beaver Cam the whole family can enjoy!

This is an informative, calming , beautiful movie. I had never seen beavers in action. Seeing how they take down these tall trees and drag them to the water to build their dams. I could watch this movie everyday. I love watching their sweet family life inside the dam. The courting dance they do on the full moon is the sweetest thing I've ever seen.

This was the first DVD I bought after going flat screen, hi def. How happy I was to see this. It's simply well photographed, and aside from finding out that domesticated beavers were used as stand-ins for the real wild variety, it's a beautifully photographed work. Plus, I've never had to live with beavers, so I think they're cute.
