One of the most visualizing documentaries of the year
In Disney's newest documentary, it features some of the most beautiful creatures, that mankind has ever seen. Narrated by James Earl Jones; Disney Signature films follows the lives of three families consisting of polar bears, elephants, and humpback whales, during their spring migration periods. While displaying some of nature's other beautiful wild life. The cinematography for this movie along with the sound track was simply breath taking. I normally don't factor in sound tracks when judging documentaries, but this films score was so moving and captured the events of the film so perfectly, that I couldn't help but feel moved by it. The cinematography was top notch as it made the viewer feel like they were right there with the three families. As the film portrays these families during their migration struggles to survive the harsh environment of predators, dehydration and starvation. Even showing the vast flight migration and mating ritual of birds, that will make any viewer enthralled by the amazing images "Earth" presents. Although due to its obvious content, a few of the animals are shown getting killed in this movie. However, the movie changes scenes immediately as the animals get taken down, so audiences won't see any blood shed during an animal's demise. Sadly, this documentary isn't as informative about the wild life, as other documentaries in the past. As it seems like they pretty much shot this film for theatrical purposes only. However, it's still a pretty decent film for what it is, and certainly entertaining. "Earth" isn't the best documentary of the year, but it's definitely one of the most visually amazing ones out there.
