Movie Reviews

Another astonishing piece of art from BBC, but disappointing
Xin Ning | Toronto, Canada | 07/16/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"July 16th, 2008:
This series has just recently been shown on CBC in HD here in Canada. I only watched 2 of the 7 part series due to schedule conflict. What can I say, BBC has done it again after their masterpiece Planet Earth. It portraits the natural beauty, the special animal species, and the people who live in harmonization, in various parts of China. Some of the scenes, according to the narrative, are the first time being shot. From the 2 episodes I watched, Wild China has some of the most stunning images and the picture quality is superb. I was so thrilled to see most of the things I have never seen either in person or on TV/Moive, even though I was originally from that country.
Now I am going to buy it off Amazon and will put it along side of Planet Earth as my permanent collection.

September 13th. 2008:
Regrettably, I have to agree with some of the reviewers that the Blu-ray production is a letdown! Comparing to the original TV series I saw, the color is not as vivid, the image drifts in and out of focus leaving one wonders whether it is really HD. And the voice of narrative is boring, I like the CBC version much better with Canadian TV host/environmentalist David Suzuki. It is very disappointing that such an amazing HD program came out to blu-ray like this.

I therefore downgraded my original rating from 5 to 3."
Wild China - Only to see is to believe.

"This is truly an incredible documentary. I knew that there were both marvelous animals and picturesque natural beauty in China, but never like this. Each episode [8 in total, viewing time of 377 minutes]makes you gape in awe at both the vastly diverse environments, animals and human tribes that make China their home."
If you like Galapagos or Planet Earth, you must own this one

"This by the far the best documentary for your money,23 dollars that has 6 hours of documentary! might not rival to planet earth in term of depth or rival gapagos picture quality, but anyway this is great documentary regardness, this is not your typical china documentary, you won't find forbidden city or other public well know sight, but isntead this more focus at the nature beauty landscape and landmark of China, which only native chinese know, example many of the scene of the wild china are never show in tv anywhere especially not in the west, only tourism will goes to those place, this mean it actualyl gave you a trip to china really, is that good. Also this one has large coverage of the popular china icon animal panda, which i sure please many, included coverage of tibet, most people think tibet as a religion and very harz place to live , but is far more than that and is very important for the survival of human kind. This does coverage of daily peopel lives but is balance with equal animal and nature coverage."
