Born To Be Wild 3D (2011)

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, Born To Be Wild captures a moment in the heart of Kenya and Borneo, where two passionate and fearless ladies have devoted their lives to rehabilitating and releasing orphaned Elephants and Orangutans.

A heart-warming, funny, visually arresting short film containing that third dimension which immediately draws you in. However, as impressive and magical as it is to see trucks and ‘tans at touching distance, the added dimension doesn’t always work, and often prevents you from stepping back and appreciating two stunning settings in all their glory.

Born To Be Wild is definitely worth a watch, but, as with many films, it’s debatable whether this needs to be done in 3D.

3/5
