If you’re ever in the mood to learn a life lesson, this movie might be your ticket. A touching film that teaches you to look at life through the eyes of a bear. Who are the monsters in this movie, the bears or the humans?
I was moved by some of the scenes, especially when Koda finds out the truth about his mom. I also thought Phil Collins did a beautiful job with the songwriting. The comedic parts featuring the moose Rutt and Tuke were hilarious! All in all, the film made for enjoyable viewing and I warmly recommend it.
The following excerpt is from a review by Stephen Holden “To a Grizzly, Humans are the Hairy Monsters” (Published: October 24, 2003 http://www.nytimes.com/)
The potpourri of myth and fantasy is swirled into a vague, all-purpose pop sermon whose message of restraint and empathy with all creatures great and small evokes everything from practicing the golden rule and following the Ten Commandments to supporting animal rights.
Sounds like Holden wasn’t to enthusiastic about this film. What do you think? Do you agree? ~~LMMolina
