Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Lions speak with British accents while struggling with self-identity and turbulent relationships in this enjoyable--if sometimes scientifically questionable--live action drama. Combining documentary footage of a Tanzanian pride with tame lions and Jim Henson animation, the film tells the story of rebellious cub Suki (voiced by Kate Winslet) who wants to be a vegetarian and keep prey as pets, and her tentative brother Linus (Rupert Graves) who must learn to protect the pride. While its often cloying dialogue is aimed at young children, the 90-minute film may not hold their attention and some of the naturally violent lion life may be too much for them. Although the single lion death is discreet, there is plenty of fighting, hunting, and carcass-chomping. References to mating and nursing may also be too blunt for some parents, making it best for children ages 6 and older. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Product Description

Real animals are the stars of this groundbreaking, live-action family film, set against the visually stunning backdrop of East Africa. By combining breathtaking natural history footage, cutting-edge animation techniques and a high-profile voice cast , Prideallows the animals to talk to each other and tell the story themselves.Accepting the traditions of family life can sometimes prove too much for a mischievous young lion cub like Suki. But on the whole, growing up in the Serengeti is good, and it seems nothing can disturb the harmony of her peaceful pride. Then tragedy strikes, and it tests her courage and exposes the laws and forces of nature in her struggle to survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shame it hasn't received more attention October 26, 2004
By Andrea
Format:DVD
I was a bit skeptical about a film with live lions and a bunch of British actors doing the voice-overs. I was surprised at how well this A&E and BBC original film turned out! It's witty, clever and entertaining, even for an adult like me. Kate Winslet is truly enjoyable in the lead role. I hope she does more voice-overs in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and satisfying February 19, 2007
Format:DVD
Set in picturesque Africa, "Pride" is an engrossing coming of age tale about three spunky lion cubs and their relationship with their pride. The pride faces many dangers in the wild especially when a pair of marauding male lions invade their turf.

Majestically photographed, this movie intertwines footage of real lions, elephants, hyenas, etc. with sequences using domesticated animal "stand-ins" who can follow human direction. The amazing scenes of wild animals going about their business were recorded by the use of an ingenious "mini" camera on wheels which was operated by remote control. Two mini-cameras were used, one disguised as a rock and one hidden under a pile of artificial elephant dung.

In the fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette included in this DVD, you see the wild animals pawing and sniffing the moving rock/camera and dung/camera when first introduced. After awhile the animals' curiousity wears off and they relax and accept the camouflaged cameras as part of the natural landscape. The activities captured on film by the mini-cameras are so undisturbed and intimate that they feel voyeuristic. The viewer is drawn into the animals' consciousness.

The lions' nuanced voices are provided by a who's who of the British cinema which includes Dame Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Jim Broadbent, and other notable thespians. The dialogue spoken by the lions is by turns dramatic or suprisingly witty depending upon the situation. The action sequences are skillfully staged and quite suspenseful. They get your adrenaline flowing.

"Pride" is an unusual and satisfying production by the ever reliable BBC. It is appropriate for viewing by older children and adults. Well done!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Movie February 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I happened across this DVD on Amazon and purchased it because it wasn't that expensive. I was actually thinking this was a nature documentary about lions when in fact it's a fictional based movie about a pride of Lions. In the movie the Lions talk, have feelings and there's...DRAMA!

Pride is quite entertaining and because all the footage is from previous nature documentaries it adds a funny twist to the movie because the action is real. There are few CGI smiles and CGI was used to make the mouths look like they talked, but other than that Pride is like a nature documentary with commentary by the lions themselves!!!

I was highly entertained by this movie. Plus, Sean Bean has such a wonderful voice. He absolutely made the movie for me!

4.0 out of 5 stars An addition to your family library... with "Pride" June 27, 2004
By kinsmed
Format:DVD
Not since "Born Free" has a movie given such breadth, such tension and hope. We are privileged to following the breathless perils of Suki and Linus, a precocious pair of lion cubs as they continually get in trouble with every conceivable danger surrounding them- they encounter enough adventures to fuel a series!
As Suki grows, children learn to understand the process of their own development and the courage and curse of their own individuality.
Seamless digital compositing provides a fascinating portrayal that is fun and engaging for adults, and yet compelling and educational for children.
Boasting the vocal talents of Britain's finest personalities coupled with the majestic sweep of the African savannah, "Pride" will easily become a classic that parents will want to use to introduce their children to the beauty and drama of the wilder side of nature.

4.0 out of 5 stars African lions with english accents : D August 14, 2008
Format:DVD
Pride is a wonderful BBC film about lions that live on the Pride. They have english accents which makes it a little silly, and it's live action. They animate the mouths as people have done in the past in many other films. It's about family, finding ones self, and survival.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful DOCUMENTARY (hint the 'D' word) January 2, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
Why do shoppers (and reviewers on IMDB) mistaken this as a kid's movie. People are giving this bad reviews because it's not something that it was never intended to be. Just because the lions talk does NOT make it a childrens' film.

Now I have that off my chest, let's get down to details. 'Pride' is a DOCUMENTARY film about two lion cubs, Linus and Suki, who are growing up on the Masai Mara in Kenya. They have to contend many dangers, such as buffalo, crocodiles, hyenas and worst of all, the 'wanderers,' a rival pride of lions. The characters are hillarious, and the villians are nice 'n nasty! A great way to step into the world of lions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pride September 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is a childhood favorite of mine, I remembered it and had to buy it. The lions' dialogue is humorous and the moral is a good lesson. However, the effects aren't really that believable, so don't buy it if you want to think the lions are actually talking.

I had heard about this movie via a website. The trailer looked wonderful but I couldn't find it at any of our local video stores, so I ordered it. I'm so happy I did. We really enjoyed watching it.
