Editorial Reviews

From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Earth and Chimpanzee, comes Bears - an epic story of breathtaking scale. Showcasing a year in the life of a bear family, mother Sky teaches her two impressionable cubs, Amber and Scout about life’s most important lessons. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop, their journey begins as winter ends. Emerging from hibernation, the three face the bitter cold and an exciting but very risky outside world. Astonishing footage captures the fast-moving action and suspense of an endearing family learning to live life to its fullest in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming FUN for the whole family April 19, 2014
By Melissa
Quick note for parents: NO BEARS DIE. This movie is age-appropriate for the whole family including very young children. While there are a few mildly tense scenes (bear cub being separated from his mother, bears fighting, lone wolf stalking bear cubs etc), they are very short and nobody ever gets hurt in any way. Unlike other Disneynature films such as CHIMPANZEE where the baby chimp's mother is killed and AFRICAN CATS where a lioness and two cubs die, BEARS won't cause anyone to cry because all the bears survive and thrive. So fear not! It has a very happy ending and NO DEATH aside from a few clams and salmon that are eaten by the bears.

The cinematography in BEARS is phenomenal, as are the very intimate "up close and personal" shots we see. The film follows Sky and her two newborn cubs, a mama's girl named Amber and an independent boy named Scout in their first year of life. John C. Reilly is a surprisingly pleasant narrator and his comical voice flows nicely with the humorous and overall light-hearted tone of the movie. The bears are often shown acting really goofy and silly. Adults and children alike were constantly laughing in the theater, it was great! This movie is so beautiful and it made me feel a great respect for the wonders of the natural world. Sky and her cubs journey across incredible landscapes and throughout seasons. We follow them through miles of snow-covered mountains sporting picturesque peaks, green grassy meadows with brilliantly vibrant lavender flowers, impressive old growth forests with massive trees, beaches where clams hide in the sand, secluded coves and waterfall-filled rivers where the salmon swim free. The antics of the cubs are adorably endearing. Amber sticks so close to mom that she literally rides atop her back for much of the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alaskan Brown Bears and Their Struggle for Survival April 21, 2014
DisneyNature is back for another Earth Day release, this time about Alaskan brown bears and their struggle for survival. Narrated by actor John C. Reilly, Bears takes the viewer to the Alaskan wilderness, a land where harsh weather and even harsher realities shape the day to day lives of the few animals brave enough to call this area home.

Bears focuses its time on a mother bear named Sky and her two young cubs, Amber and Scout. The documentary shows the two babies shortly after birth and follows them on their post- hibernation journey from mountain cave to chilly streams flowing with tasty salmon. There are plenty of dangers along the way. Wolves and other bears are always lurking about and a mother bear must remain vigilant to these threats at all times.

This documentary, like the others in the DisneyNature series, is highly educational and great for the entire family. The documentary takes on a serious tone, for the most part, but there are several humorous moments that will get children giggling and adults smiling. This is good and necessary because there are some segments of the documentary that could be a little scary for kids. The humor helps to put viewers back in a good mood and helps relieve the tense moments.

Bears is great for its educational value, but even if you’re not all that interested in animals and their day to day lives, there is one other reason to watch Bears, and that is for the amazing cinematography. The scenery is magnificent and to watch these massive brown bears against the snowy backdrop of mountains is truly a sight to behold. Just watching the scenery sets your imagination soaring and it could convince some viewers to consider a family vacation to this region of Alaska, just to marvel at its natural beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't imagine a better nature documentary June 7, 2014
You know how nature documentaries used to be, with the prolonged shots showing a creature doing its daily business, with emotionless narration, dry facts about how the creature operates, and dull music? I figured this would be sort of that way but was still really looking forward to the beautiful landscapes and learning more about how bears function. Well, not only did it have the things I expected, but it was even better, because the narration is written with great levity and humor and narrated in the most colorful way imaginable by John C. Reilly! Less than two months after seeing it in the theater, I already am ready for it to come out on DVD/Blu-ray. The scenery is very, very beautiful, and the narration makes it even more enjoyable. (I also never thought I could LIKE bears, because I always thought of 'em as scary and smelly. I think it's interesting that when they filmed it in Alaska, the bears didn't feel threatened at all by the presence of humans. Maybe most creatures LEARN to be mean.) It feels like an adventure story more than like a straightforward nature documentary. I really love how it was done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another DAZZLING documentary by Walt Disney! May 1, 2014
“Bears” was one of the better documentaries I’ve seen in a long time. This comes as no surprise considering it was produced by Walt Disney. The film follows a mother Alaskan Kodiak Brown Bear and her cubs as they awake from hibernation and journey to find food during the spring and summer. I was in complete awe of how they were able to capture such footage of the bears on camera. One particular scene that comes to mind is at the beginning when they show in full color the bears in hibernation. There was no night vision or monotone lamps used just full HD color. I’d never seen this before. One amazing fact I learned was that the mother eats 90 lbs. of salmon EACH DAY in the spring and summer months leading up to the long, cold winter. They dig dens at the TOP of the mountain only to wake up in the spring and begin their long trek down to the beaches and bases of the river. When the camera pans across the Alaskan wilderness it’s really breathtaking. All of the wildness is National Forestry and it’s beautiful seeing the bears completely free and open out in the wild. I love this film and John C. Reilly was an awesome narrator and reminded me of the guy from “The Adventures of Milo and Otis”. If you haven’t already seen this film I HIGHLY recommended going to see it in theaters while you can. It’s packed with incredible footage, lots of factual information and a great story everyone is sure to enjoy. (4/4 Stars)
