Outstanding!
23 September 2013 | by amymloreSee all my reviews

My family saw this film over the weekend and loved it! All the way down to our 5 year old daughter. This is a documentary that plays more like a movie. You will be cheering, clapping, crying, cringing, laughing, etc... it gives you all the emotions that you want after seeing a film. The camera work is amazing as well as the storyline. It will truly have you on the edge of your seat. Forget about the animated movies your children want to see, take them to this and they will walk away from it with a type of value and knowledge that they would have never of had before. I can't say enough terrific things about this film! Truly spectacular in every sense!
