Is It Any Good?

The lion cubs are adorable, and it It's interesting to hear about how a pride operates, but the real star here, as in many documentaries, is the footage itself. Infrared cameras capture night-time wildebeast ambushes and practice fights among cubs, and while it's a little slow-moving between fights, fans who like watching wild creatures and seeing different parts of the world will appreciate this slice of lion life.
