Its a natural history epic. Its a compelling detective story. Its scientific adventure at its best.
Flight of the Butterflies is an interconnected scientific adventure story that spans not only thousands of miles, but generations. Its about the remarkable Monarch butterfly migration, the most incredible migration on Earth, and the determined scientist who spent 40 years trying to discover exactly where the butterflies mysteriously disappeared when they flew south for winter.
Flight of the Butterflies is that rare kind of documentary that not only imparts bounteous information, but which also speaks directly to the heart repeatedly.... Technical merits are first rate, and Flight of the Butterflies comes Highly recommended --Bluray.com, July 2, 2016
Since this film was shot with IMAX cameras, you can expect some excellent telescopic shots of all the insects, and each closeup and image is perfectly shown with the best detail possible. --highdefdigest.com, July 6, 2016
Shout! Factory has done a great job with this combo set, it has all: 4K, 3D Blu-ray, and Blu-ray on two discs (the 3D and 2D versions of the film share the same disc)…. While the 4K disc was gorgeous, the 3D version of the film really wowed me. Ive seen a fair amount of 3D movies and this was one of the best as far as pulling the viewer in with a great feeling of depth. The scenes where the Monarchs are fluttering through the trees in a forest are simply beautiful with butterflies going in all directions, appearing to fly in front of and into the screen --DVD Talk, July 8, 2016

as with most IMAX films the image quality is top notch, especially for the scenes involving butterflies. There are other scenes with interviews, many of which could have been done as voice-over on the butterfly scenes - the way it's done gives it a bit of a classroom feel. Explanation of the scientific parts of the content are easy to follow and pretty interesting - spoiler alert: the different generations of Monarch butterflies which develop through the migration cycle between Canada and Mexico until the cycle starts over. So Monarchs in North America only - nothing about any other species of these beautiful insects from around the world.
What's very nice is that this box contains the 4K UHD version (with HDR10 high dynamic range), but also a 3D version alongside the 2D on the included blu-ray. So if you're one of the few that have a working 3D setup, be prepared to be amazed.
If Monarchs are your thing or you want a disc to show the differences between 2D, 3D and 4K then is might be for you. As far as nature documentaries go, I'd have a closer look at BBC's Planet Earth II which is setting new standards for content and picture quality.
This is still well worth the purchase. The making of the movie extra was good as well.
Here is the BEST source for 3D blu-rays:
The sound quality is excellent/transparent on this disc.
Thanks to Amazons worldwide reach Americans can have it all!
