Wild Wolverine adheres well to both its title and its existence as a Curiositystream nature documentary. It provides a wealth of narrated educatioal information and well-shot audiovisual footage about the small but fierce wolverines of the northern tundras and forests. The footage is extensive, covering not only wolverines but also an array of moose, bears, deer, and foxes who also play large roles in the life and daily habits of a wolverine.

Because the footage is all shot in one unnamed area of frozen forest, it doesn't pack quite as much emotional power as other Curiositystream nature documentaries. In addition, there are some strange technical aspects such as an unexplained foray into the life of a family of bears and music that doesn't fit the emotional undercurrent of whatever's happening on screen (e.g. a wolverine dragging around a dead bird is scored with an oddly mysterious chime). These bizarre technical elements, in addition to the common idea that nature documentaries might be boring for viewers who aren't already interested in biology/ecology, make Wild Wolverine into a watch that is worthwhile for its subject matter but also somewhat forgettable.
