All I hoped for
6 March 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

It is very much telling that "Bears", a 2004 IMAX documentary, has no reviews here on IMDb so far. I will break this cycle. It is among the lesser known IMAX documentaries for sure, but in my opinion it is also among the very best. The title says it all basically. This one is about bears: polar bears, brown bears, black bears and we even find out why teddy bears are called teddy bears, although I remember hearing that before. But most of it is nature photography and very stunning actually. I must say it became quickly very obvious that Lickley and Low have quite a decent share of experience in terms of (nature) documentaries. Experts at work here and it is one of the finest animal documentaries of the 21st century I believe. Plus it also has a great message that we have to make sure bears do not lose their natural habitat or get in danger of extinction. Okay, you may find the "Bears" song at the beginning and end a bit cheesy, but it's actually pretty catchy and the lyrics very much emphasize the film's message that we have to help bears. I certainly enjoyed the watch a lot and I highly recommend seeing it. Can't believe it did not receive any awards recognition. Don't miss out.
