run of the mill story in a beautiful setting

Author: Tiger (roguegenius) from United States

Although the screen was filled with elephants here and there, that is the best part of the movie. Seeing elephants in their natural surroundings was worth seeing. However, the plot line was pretty lame. Although, fairly well acted, none of the characters had much depth and were not developed much as the movie moved along.

While the movie might entertain small children who would be amazed by the elephant action, most adults would feel like they had seen this story too many times before. a trusted person is dealing from the bottom of the deck but gets caught in the end.

Watchable, but have a kid or two around if you do. They'll have a better time than you, but you might have fun watching them enjoy the pachyderm action.

While this is certainly no "Oscar" worthy effort, the other review on this site is much to harsh and also a bit ignorant. Marlee Matlin is indeed deaf, and while people of little intelligence, and even less "humanity" may indeed find her voice "annoying" it is by far less so than the ignorance they reveal with theirs. In fact, it is far less taxing to watch the film than to read the ranting of a fool. I would suggest that the film is not all that bad, and is in some ways enjoyable, however uneven,or stilted the acting. The photography is stunning, It is a mildly interesting story that could have been told better, It is by far better than all the vampire / werewolf trash.

simply awful

Author: Dean Edwards from United Kingdom

if you don't mind wasting your life then watch this film because it will make you physically sick it is that bad worst film of all time in my opinion 8.3 is a joke 1/10. the acting is really bad one woman is supposedly deaf but she hears fine so basically you just have to put up with her annoying voice for 75mins. people say this is a good film because of the scenery, yes it is but at the end of the day you watch documentaries to see things like that, you watch movies to be entertained and that was the worst thing i have ever seen. the worst part is they must have spent millions making that film and i have never been so insulted that i had to sit through that film, absolutely terrible, if you came on here wondering if you should watch it or not, don't, you will regret it the rest of your life
