This documentary follows a colony of honey ants in the Arizona desert.
1 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this documentary was very well done. The narration by Andy Serkis was excellent. The audience is given the ability to delve deep into the tunnels of these desert ants to see its inner workings. The documentary records the rise of an ant "empire" over a span of eight years. The camera angles are amazing and you watch as the colony ants fight and survive in the barren conditions of Arizona. It is an eye opening experience of how complex an ant colony is and its interactions with its surroundings. It is an educational and family friendly documentary that records one of the most well known insects. Some may find it boring but for those that find insects interesting you will greatly enjoy this documentary.
