Synopsis [T]ouching....It's fun to see the orangutans as they slither up vines. And the baby elephants are solemnly adorable. -- Grade: B[P]retty cool to look at....The attraction here is the cinematography, and it makes good use of Imax and 3-D technology, with lovely aerial views and startling close-ups.[A] captivating documentary....The film proves a rich and memorable journey.3 stars out of 5 -- This may be the first film in recent years worthy of the technology marshaled to make it spectacular....[The film] will not only captivate with its scale but engage with its tale.Immersing audiences in the presence of the animals heightens our sense of involvement...Shot in IMAX 3D, David Lickley's 40-minute documentary BORN TO BE WILD observes various orphaned jungle animals and their day-to-day behavioral interactions with the individuals who rescue them and raise them to adulthood. The film unfurls in two separate geographic spheres. Half of it takes place in the rain forests of Borneo, where celebrated primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas assists baby orangutans; the other half takes place on the arid savannahs of Kenya, where zoologist Dame Daphne Sheldrick works with baby elephant calves. The goal, in each case, is not simply rehabilitation but the ultimate return of these animals to the wild, where (it is hoped) they will function freely and independently. Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman narrates; Drew Fellman produced and authored the script.
