5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You, Disney!!!!! July 19, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was ready to jump out of my seat with joy when i saw the previews for this. The movie more than lived up to my expectations.
I've been a huge admirer of wild cats ever since i saw Born Free as a little girl. Lions, cheetahs, tigers, servals you name it. I've watched many video's and t.v. specials on them over the years but few compare to DisneyNature African cats.
Showing both good times and bad this is an acurate depiction of these cats lives. Disney did an admirable job of making it as family friendly as possible. Yes, some scenes may upset very young viewers. If you're worried about a 'Bambi' moment you may want to preview it first.
However i strongly recommend you get this film and save it for when they are ready.
It's a beautiful, honest movie about some of this world's most majestic and inspiring beings. African Cats and other DisneyNature films are 'living' memories of our world. A world in which sadly lions and cheetahs may soon be a thing of our past.
I eagerly look forward to getting the dvd of this. It's only available in a dvd/blue ray combo but as long as there's a disc i can use with my dvd player, ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Educational Movie July 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie at the theater and LOVED IT. I particularly loved the way they portrayed lions. Too often are lions portrayed as the bad guys who are just out to kill the sweet little zebras and antelope. This film actually makes you understand that just because lions kill for food doesn't mean they're bad--they have a family to feed. At some parts, I was actually cheering for the lions to get food, because if they didn't, the cubs wouldn't survive. This film also shows the affectionate and playful side to lions, while still showing their aggressive and predatory side. I really wasn't expecting lions to be so family-oriented and sweet to each other. Then again, I guess that's how the pride becomes strong.

I also like how it shows that big cats have their own problems too and that they aren't trouble-free bullies, like so many other animal programs make them out to be. Of course, this movie has animal death, but then again, what do you expect? It's a movie about LIONS and CHEETAHS--of course they are going to show how they get food! I have read too many reviews on other sites from people complaining about Disney showing how lions and cheetahs kill for food, and claiming that they ran out of the theater CRYING with their kids in tow. Okay, idiots, if you want to see a movie about the lives of LIONS AND CHEETAHS, common sense tells you that you will see some blood. If your common sense does not tell you that, then that's your own fault for being ignorant. I mean seriously. There was even death and violence in "March of the Penguins"! Even so, the killings in "African Cats" are not very graphic. Really, you just see a hunt, a strike, and maybe some blood on the cats' faces after they've eaten, but it's nowhere near as graphic as some drama queens make it out to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nature is as indifferent as it is beautiful. June 16, 2011
Disneynature has carved a niche for itself in theatrical releases of nature films with varying success. Earth and Oceans were moderately profitable, though they suffered from an episodic structure that did not hold an audience's attention, and terrible narration that distracted pointlessly. The strongest release yet is African Cats, co-directed by one of the architects of Planet Earth, Alastair Fothergill. Following a pride of lions and a mother cheetah, African Cats considers apex predators and their interplay on the productive Mara veldt. The camerawork captures the vastness of the Masai Mara plains while not losing sight of the intimate details essential to understanding the bonds between mother and cub. It lacks the violence of The Last Lions, but none of its storytelling verve, and brings some needed energy to a fairly barren week for film.

African Cats follows events in the lives of Mara, a lion cub who is under the tutelage of her mother, Layla; Sita, a cheetah who is raising five hungry newborns; and Fang, a male lion who attempts to protect his family and territory from a rival lion. Survival on the bitter savanna is a perpetual struggle. Mara is only six months old, and as a lion cub has a 1 in 5 chance of surviving to adulthood. Life seems simple for a cub, awaiting kills and playing with siblings while learning gradually how to fend for themselves; Mara's days are numbered, however, as the mother is nursing an injury that is slowing her down. Sita must regularly leave her cubs to hunt for food, leaving them vulnerable to attack. Even if she makes a kill, cheetahs are regularly chased from it by hyenas or lions. Cheetahs are built for grace and speed, not for standing fights.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life and death among the felines April 23, 2011
This documentary follows two mother cats, a lion and a cheetah, as they try to protect their cubs on the African savanna.

Adults who have even a minimal layman's knowledge of these magnificent animals will probably not get much new information, but they will be treated to incredible visuals that will unfortunately lose much of their power on most home screens. Filmmakers Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey have really captured some extraordinary images. Children are likely to be captivated. My own four-year-old son was challenged a bit by the 90 minute running time, but was frequently drawn in by what was on the screen and finally declared it to be "so much fun." The narration features the anthropomorphism and sentimentality that plague so many Disney nature films (i.e., "To Mara, Fang is the best daddy ever"), but the essential quality of the filmmakers' work shines through.
