Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Noteworthy because it represents a kind of fevered moviemaking insanity that we rarely see these days.
Fresh: A beautiful film, but it's also a troubled one.
Fresh: Although special effects and careful editing pitch in, the wild-kingdom authenticity on display is an astonishing achievement.
Fresh: This is a family movie on a grand scale, enhanced by lush cinematography and throbbing music, with a minimum of dialogue and an endless assortment of thrills.
A sweet movie for kids
My daughter loves tigers, so she loved this movie. It is a touching tale of two tiger cubs who live very different lives and then find eachother when they are grown. There are some slightly scary parts, but it all ends happy. My daughter saw it originally in the movies when she was 5. She is now 10 and wants me to buy it, so I will. It is not outstanding, but it is worth the money. Overall, a good family movie. We recommend it, especially for animal lovers of all ages.
I saw this movie with my children- ages 12 and 9 at the time. It was the saddest story the entire time until the last 3 minutes. We were all crying and miserable. This makes Benji and Old Yeller look like cartoons. If you are at all an animal lover you will not enjoy this "entertainment". I felt sick after this movie and I am not a baby. Only one other movie left me in a heaping mess on the floor. And to think that this was for kids? Maybe Michael Vick could handle it but not those of us who love animals. That's my warning to all.
Too the people that said that its horrible and sick you cant just look at the saddness of the story you have to get the big picture. Its a very inspirational movie to me.
