'Bears' is an engaging tale that pulls you in while rooting for their survival

Is a documentary a cinematographers dream? Or is it all up to the film editor to pull a nature story together with no computer affects?

Documentaries are always entertaining. Disney has a way of taking a candid wild animal saga and turning it into a story, with 'Bears'.

The stars of the movie 'Bears' include Sky, a brown mamma bear with her two cubs, Scout and Amber. After emerging from their den after a winter in the mountains, the story follows the trio as they make their way across the peaks all the way to the shore hunting for food…mainly salmon.

Hungry male bears try to eat her cubs and other close calls make this story death defying. Sky is in constant battle to provide food and safety for her family.
Although the bears have distinct personalities, a better story-line would be learning more about bears rather than humanizing them.

In 'Bears' we watch how fast they grow. There are perils and sweet moments to keep spectators in awe.

It is an engaging tale that pulls you in while rooting for their survival. It takes a team of explorers, cinematographers and film editors months and a lot of film to get the right pieces together to create a documentary.

Scenic views of the Alaskan wilderness, appropriately inserted warm and fuzzy music, a moderately-toned narrator and that Disney touch keeps the family audience captivated. John C. Reilly narrates.
