Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This solid documentary is a standard "big cat attacks and devours prey" journey, but it's bolstered by an interesting locale and unusual animals like the guanaco. Mountain lions are scrappy and tough creatures at the top of their food chain, but notably, this docu also examines the chain reaction of their kill as it affects other, smaller animals. It's not necessarily riveting, but fans of cats both big and small will appreciate this peek into the mountains.
