From Disneynature, the studio that brought you EARTH, OCEANS, AFRICAN CATS and CHIMPANZEE, comes WINGS OF LIFE -- a stunning adventure full of intrigue, drama and mesmerizing beauty. Narrated by Meryl Streep, this intimate and unprecedented look at butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers is a celebration of life, as a third of the world's food supply depends on these incredible -- and increasingly threatened -- creatures. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, WINGS OF LIFE utilizes riveting high-speed, closer-than-close filmmaking techniques to showcase in spectacular detail these unsung heroes of our planet.

Next time I watch it, however, may turn the sound off to avoid the narrative spoken by none-other-than Miss Meryl Streep. Don't get me wrong, Meryl Streep may be the best American actress Ever, and decidedly one of my favs. The narrative she voices was, un-enhancing to an already flawless nature film. Sooo, if you don't like it either, just turn the sound off, but whatever you do, DON'T let it keep you from enjoying this truly remarkable nature film about Hummingbirds.
I'm the Executive Director of GATE - Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment (John Raatz, Jim Carrey, Eckhart Tolle) and this is a film we all believe in. (I am not connected to this film in any way.) The photography and direction are gorgeous and spectacular! Louie Schwartzberg is brilliant and talented plus has a huge heart with his passion to make a difference in the world.
I must also say I learned so much about "the birds and the bees" ;-) and the flowers - INCREDIBLE!
A must see film for the whole family.
Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment
If you're into nature documentaries, this one is a must have. Meryl isn't quite as good of a narrator as David Attenborough, but she does a fine job nonetheless. The footage from this is on par, if not better than, Planet Earth/Blue Planet and the likes.
Very educational and fun for the whole family. Even my spastic kid sat still to watch this with us.
Disney's ability to use sharp graphics, crisp and clear photography has long been impressive. However, with the development of high definition (Blu-Ray) the images become beautiful and greatly increase the production value. Ad to this the clearly told story with the fantastic voice of Meryl Streep and a true masterpiece is born.
I highly recommend.
Peace and clear skies.
