This was cute and sweet and kind and funny. The kids will be safe from all bloodshed and survival of the fittest shots. It's so sanitized that I felt a bit uncomfortable considering it a documentary.
The scenery is luscious. The animals are captivating. But honestly, the most interesting part of the movie was the behind the scenes production info. Tim Allen was enjoyable...he did a funny thing that I won't describe and spoil for you.
I really saw the movie quite by accident. I was in one of the interchangeable action movies of this summer and had a horrible headache. The noise and jarring battle scenes were not helping my migraine, so I switched theaters after about seven minutes. Chimpanzee was cool and deliciously calming after the first calamity...but it just didn't quite convince me. I understand that my hero Jane Goodall liked it, so I suppose I should stop my grumbling and focus on the positive.
I really wish it had been a bit longer...I could have been persuaded to see some of the surrounding civilization that has been encroaching on the chimp territory. Ditto the poachers, who are integral to the tale of the demise of our close brethren. It could have been addressed without giving up the G rating, I feel certain.
If you have little ones, this is a good movie: not too long. If you are an animal lover, you will enjoy it. If you are a stickler for authenticity, this is going to grind your gears.
Oscar, a baby chimpanzee is enjoying his life with his mother in the jungles along the Ivory Coast. Without warning, young Oscar is tragically orphaned during an attack from a rival group of chimpanzees. Afterwards, he attempts to survive on his own, and to be accepted by the other chimps. But Oscar struggles, until he is surprisingly adopted by the Alpha Male of his group.
