Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There's a spirit that soars in this nature doc about a 13-year-old who becomes Mongolia's first female eagle hunter in 12 generations. You'll be hooked. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 3, 2016

Fresh: The film lends itself to grand pronouncements about feminism or animal rights or some combination of the two, but at heart this is an engaging story about a girl and her eagle. – Abbey Bender, Village Voice, Nov 4, 2016

Fresh: Otto Bell's The Eagle Huntress is everything you could ask for in a documentary, and more. It's the more that distracts from time to time, but not enough to spoil our pleasure. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Nov 3, 2016

Fresh: For every misgiving "The Eagle Huntress" invites, it offers inspiration in equal measure, taking the audience on a beautiful, thrilling journey to a part of the world that isstill largely inaccessible. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Nov 10, 2016
