Editorial Reviews

It is a spectacle few have seen firsthand. Two foes trapped on an island in a remote part of Africa - and a battle to survive captured in high-definition over two years by award-winning filmmakers. Now, National Geographic takes viewers onto a unique battlefield in the Okavango Delta to witness the grueling fight for survival of highly specialized lions that prey almost exclusively on buffalo in Relentless Enemies.

The first true nature documentary to be released on HD formats and, boy, is it excellent!

This is a 90-minute documentary on a pride of lions and their buffalo prey trapped on an island in the Okavango delta. There is an extrememly informative narrative throughout the whole program with some fascinating moments.

The picture is truly amazing in HD. You can see every hair on the lion's mane, every fly buzzing around a buffalo, and every blade of grass concealing the hunters. Incredible.

The sound is an achievement, too. You've got to have surround sound for this. The bellows of the lions, the grunts of the buffalo, and the laughs of the hyenas surround you and immerse you in Africa completely!

And the narration by Jeremy Irons is worth the price alone.

If you have a Blu-ray player, this is a must-buy! I absolutely loved it!

This is one of the best lion documentaries I have ever seen, the Jouberts have done it again. Several giant-sized powerfully built lionesses have specialized in hunting buffalo, massive bulls and newborn calves alike. The buffalo are equally dangerous defending their own. If you enjoy real world wildlife battles as opposed to fake, computer generated conflict this film is for you. The notorious hyenas make a cameo appearance but the lions aren't all that concerned about them. The angry faces of the lionesses are hilarious at times. And a dark side of lion life is exposed.

The commentary can be turgid and overwrought, but the cinematography is superb and the music complements the action well.

Having both the SD DVD and the HD(Blu-ray) DVD versions, I can say without a doubt that the detail in HD is fantastic with the clouds of flies that surround the buffalos being clearly obvious. The detail of the Lions is such that you feel they are in the room with you. The program is exciting and keeps you on the edge of your chair for the whole 90min duration. Who will win? as the tables are turned time and time again, the buffalos or the lions? Expertly filmed and narrated. In 5.1 Dolby Digital audio, so the sound is also fantastic.
As it is Region Free, this BD DVD can be enjoyed worldwide.
A must for wildlife fans.
The HD(Blu-ray) format is really suited to wildlife/nature programs, and hopefully a lot more wildlife programs in this format will be available soon.

Fortunately, this disc plays without any problem in my Toshiba HD-A2 with the latest 1.5 FW update. It's a great film with all those incredible up-close brutal scenes!

I hear great things about this movie. Be warned though. Relentless Enemies will not play on any of 4 different Xbox360 HD-DVD players we've tested it on. They all have the latest updates from Microsoft and still will NOT play this disc. Shame on the manufacturers for such lousy quality control. They are clearly embracing mediocrity.

The film has great resolution (1080p) and crystal clear sound. It's amazing to hear the lions roar in a home theater system. A definite must see.

This is my favorite of Dereck and Beverly Joubert's films. I loved it so much I actually bought the companion book (also called Relentless Enemies, see my review). The cinematography is superb, the picture quality excellent and the creatures awe inspiring. The lions are the most beautiful I have ever seen, but the buffalo are just as impressive. These giants literally fill the screen with their amazing confrontations! I have lost count of how many times I have watched it and it's just as wonderful as at the first viewing. The narration seems a bit melodromatic at first, but with Jeremy Irons' perfect enunciation and timing it grows on you after the first viewing.
