“Bears” Movie Review

KELSEY PHARIS//KATIE PICKRELL

The movie “Bears,” directed by Alastair Fothergill, Keith Scholey and narrated by John C. Reilly is a wonderful documentary showing the lives of a brown bear family in Alaska.  Bears

Focusing mainly on the cubs, the documentary opens up as Reilly introduces a bear named Sky (the mom) and Amber and Scout (the cubs). The cubs learn what it is like to be a bear, defending what is yours and, most importantly, finding food.

Reilly’s narration was very entertaining and kept the movie lighthearted and funny even during the serious parts. Some of the comedy was needed, especially in the tense areas of the movie.

“Bears” will keep you at the edge of your seat as you wait to see what dangers lie ahead and whether or not the cubs or the mom will survive to the feeding ground.

They are faced against avalanches, lack of food, male bears who try to eat the cubs as well as a fox that never seems to give up.
For a documentary, it definitely deserves a four out of five rating. Overall, the cinematography, uplifting narration and the complete story made the film amazing. It was by far the absolute cutest movie I have ever seen.
