Very Well Documented!
2 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw a screening of the movie today. They did an incredible job documenting this movie. It looked really cool over the IMAX Dome. I was truly amazed. A lot of laughter. Makes you think about what is out there in the world and how there is so much we can do to help others. I didn't realize that Baby Elephants can't survive on their own. The people that take their time to work with these animals are a blessing in this world. They have a lot of heart. The Orangutans have a lot of characteristics that we do. They can be humorous. They can get into trouble when they want. They cling to others for support. Make's me want to go out there and experience what I saw today.
