Born in China

Born in China ★★★

This was probably the first time I have seen a G rated movie in the theater in a long time and the first time I've seen a nature documentary on the big screen outside of a museum. It was a pretty fun experience to see grand shots of Chinese landscapes and to see the baby animals having some fun. It was pretty interesting to see the selective cuts that mostly hid the blood and killing of the wilderness and might have cut story lines into the movie (I'm pretty sure the snow leopard cubs were only seen on one or two days and enough footage was found to cut them into the rest of the snow leopard story). The stories get a little heavier than other Disney films because it deals with rejection by parents and more death in a nature documentary for kids than one would expect.
