Born to be Wild 3D - The Sudbury Star

This is the third story about the adventures of Sudburian David Lickley, who was hired by IMAX and Warner Brothers, to direct their new 3D.


What the Critics Have to Say about "BEARS"

"...views are never less than eye-fillingly grand."
--David Cote, Time Out New York

Kids . . . will love this beautifully-shot IMAX nature documentary showing bears and their cubs frolicking and struggling to survive in Alaska, Montana and northern Canada."
--Lou Lemenick, New York Post

"This spectacularly filmed, hour-long documentary is educational but also visually entertaining."
--Lisa Wilton, The Calgary Sun

"Filled with fun facts and aboriginal beliefs about the bear spirits, Bears is a great way to introduce children to these magnificent animals."
--Lisa Wilton, The Calgary Sun

"Black bear cubs gambol in the grass, making honking noises that sound hilariously like geese. Polar bears do 'strange tangos on the tundra.' And when the salmon spawn, grizzlies congregate at a river, jostling for position like unruly relatives at a family picnic."
--Laurel Graeber, The New York Times

"This movie never frightens the viewer even though its subject is the planet's largest terrestrial predator. Bears are shown nursing young, endlessly searching for food and often facing a fragile future.... There are several scenes that are downright funny. I couldn't help but laugh when I heard the "bleat" a black bear cub made and saw a black bear sow slide down a snow-covered slope - obviously out of control.... this is truly a family movie and one with an obvious conservation message and mission. There is even a little history lesson about President Teddy Roosevelt and teddy bears."
--Linda Stahl, The Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
