I docked one star for the fact that Mr. Ellis placed his face in front of the camera more often that required. It is my view that a narrator should be heard and not seen, at least not as often as Mr. Ellis. It distracted from the viewing experience.
Be forewarned. I've never had to return something through Amazon, but looks like this one will be my learning experience.
If you are in the US and thinking of purchasing this, I'd wait until they figure out what went wrong.
****Update on 6-19-12: This is the same movie I bought (as far as I can tell) as "3D Safari Africa [Blu-ray]" which was encoded as a United States Blu-ray 3D and sells on Amazon for $19.28. If you want to see this movie ("Safari 3D" for $11.99) then fork out an extra $7.29 ($19.28 - $11.99 = $7.29) and you got it. Do an Amazon search on: 3D Safari Africa.
BTW: I give the movie "3D Safari Africa [Blu-ray]" four stars. It is an enjoyable and interesting 3D film to watch but not 5 stars --- good not great. I'm glad I bought it (even though it cost me $7.29 extra). I will watch it again.
The first player I tried it in was my PS3 and it came up with a black screen with a warning and then back to a black screen where it remained until I exited out to the system UI. I tried this several times and it never played any sound or showed that it was playing a chapter when I hit the display button to show the disc's information.
The second player I tried it in was the Bluray burner drive on my laptop...it immediately said that the disc was not recognized so I tried it in the Bluray drive of my desktop where it was recognized but would not play.
I then tried it in a Samsung HT-D6730 Bluray player and it did not even recognize the disc...said "Unknown Disc" on the menu and did nothing when attempting to play it.
I do not have the model numbers for the other two players I tried it in, but one was a Sony and the other was a Sharp and neither one of them would play the movie. That's right, I tried it in SIX DIFFERENT PLAYERS and it did NOT work in any of them! I'm currently waiting on an email back from Amazon regarding the issue and their claim to it being "REGION FREE" because it does not seem to be region free at all. Either that or they received a bad batch of discs. Needless to say, it's going back!
If you live in the US and use your PS3 as your primary Bluray player or own the other model I listed above, you've been warned that it more than likely will NOT work!
The 3D is good and the scenery is nice but why just 3 stars. The pace is slow and they don't show any predators hunting. Perhaps it is because of the E rating that they have to cut out the graphic scenes...
