Movie Reviews

Must have been great in IMAX, a little short for DVD
Peter V. Tamas | New Brunswick area, NJ United States | 11/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fine documentary about the animal life of the sub-Antarctic Island of South Georgia. You see elephant seals, fur seals, at least two species of penguin and Wandering Albatross. The vast numbers of each of the species featured is impressive by themselves. Of course, you get interesting info on all these species. The male elephant seals fighting for the right to a harem until they are a bloody mess while disinterested penguins look on is particularly memorable. Unfortunately, this is only 35 minutes long. As good as this documentary is, it could have been much better with additional analyses and commentary. The cost of a DVD will be too high for many to justify this short piece. However, this is a solid nature documentary and well worth watching. I certainly recommend it for libraries, etc., where frequent watching will justify the cost."
