I posted this in the review section, but feel this film deserves mention here, where I haven't seen it discussed. The following is a direct copy from that post:

This was probably the best integration and presentation of 3D that I have seen to date. I bought this Blu Ray 3D when it was released and don't regret it for a second - something I can't say about several other recent purchases. The 3D imagery is never, ever gimmicky or used to "show off". It is simply breathtaking in its execution and there are several moments of truly feeling like you are right there in the wilderness with the animals and their caretakers.

Those looking for in-your-face stunts won't find many of those, but the depth and beauty of this presentation will win them over nonetheless. I simply cannot imagine a better use of 3D in giving a viewer the immediacy of this film, along with an interesting story that parallels two similar women as they devote their lives to these spectacular animals. It's absolutely reference material in my view and shows how 3D can not only add value, but do it seamlessly, without drawing direct attention to itself as the reason for making the film.

I received this as a gift after not wanting to pay 3D Blu-ray prices for a 40 minute documentary. Well, I was wrong. The use of 3D here is really terrific. I think this is a disc I could use to sway people who don't usually care for 3D. This will get a lot of replay because it is just provides a great 3D experience.

Would buy this if it wasn't priced so high for a 40 minute movie. Getting laserdisc pricing flashbacks!

Yes, saw this in the theater and viewing it on my LG 65LM6200 is just as awesome of an experience. The film is so incredibly and tastefully done while still telling a wonderful story that it is worth owning. The only downside to it is that it's too short! I found myself annoyed in the theater that is was only 43 minutes but it was an amazing 43 minutes both at the IMAX and in my family room!

I just ordered this on Amazon with a gift card, along with Underworld: Awakening 3D. Looking forward to viewing both on my Samsung. I've read nothing but good reviews about Born To Be Wild, and its use of 3D. I too, wish it were longer than 40 minutes.

I was lucky to find this yesterday at a Pre Played store for $19. Well worth the $. One of the best 3D I have seen to date. Simply amazing.

Yeah, but for that price on some LDs, you got a full feature film, occasionally with extras. I can't recall any laserdiscs at that price for a 40-minute film!
