This film highlights the extraordinary world of insects, Bugs! Photography is just incredible, and at its best when it focuses on the life cycles of a praying mantis and a butterfly from their birth to their inevitable demise in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia.
The film covers more than 40 tropical insects are featured, captured in minute detail for the first time ever in 3D Large Format. This is just remarkable photography.
You will see a caterpillar hatch from a single tiny egg to metamorphose into a butterfly, and watch as a praying mantis snaps up a fly for its dinner.
I noticed a few reviews complain this is not for children. I would just say this movie was made as a documentary...not a children's film. It shows actually life cycles of animals and that may not be what a mom or dad wants their children to see.
Don't miss this one...it truly is remarkable!
**Spoiler Alert** The praying mantis eats the butterfly. This may be quite traumatic for some children, but my 4th graders were perfectly fine afterward and required no counseling services as a result.
This is a well-done documentary, originally made for IMAX and made for BIG screens, narrated by Judi Dench giving much information about insects in the rainforest and centering on the lives of a butterfly and a praying mantis.
My 6-year-old son did well watching it and enjoyed it, although he did start commenting on how long the movie was at about 33 minutes of the 40 minutes run time. Admittedly, the movie was a little slow at some parts for a 6-year-old (and a 43-year-old), focusing on panoramic vistas and insect reproduction, but overall enjoyable.
One caution: do not plan on eating anytime after the movie ....
