Worldwide acclaim for the film -
Variety - Peter Debruge
"Given the sheer scale of the format, Imax provides an ideal context in which to experience 3D, allowing the eyes to wander about each periphery-filling frame and focus on whatever catches our interest, the way we do in the real world."
"From marching penguins to BBC's hi-def "Planet Earth" series, nature docs have evolved dramatically in recent years, and yet for sheer spectacle, nothing beats the time-tested impact of the Imax format."
Los Angeles Times – Gary Goldstein
“The captivating documentary ‘Born to Be Wild 3D” spotlights the amazing efforts of two unique women.”

Wall Street Journal – John Anderson
“A moving, engaging and revelatory IMAX attraction with two heroines and a crowd of charming beasts.”
