Review Generally speaking, documentary viewers are divided into two categories: those who can't stand "nature" programs and those who love them. Considering the popularity of the Discovery Channel on television, the latter group is well populated. And, while Winged Migration is a significant cut above the average National Geographic Special (in terms of scope and cinematography), its appeal lies with the same core viewing audience. If you're fascinated (or just mildly curious) about birds and their habits, this is a must-see. If you don't care or bored by the subject matter, even the majesty of a film like Winged Migration may be unable to pique your interest...Winged Migration is a fascinating motion picture. It certainly isn't the ultimate documentary about birds and their migratory habits (any more than Microcosmos was the ultimate documentary about insects), but it's an excellent surface-level introduction that delivers some of the most amazing images of any movie in recent history. At its opening, Winged Migration informs us that no special effects were used in composing the film. It's good to know that, because some of the visuals offered by Winged Migration are more impressive than the most complex digital shot in The Matrix Reloaded.

Review Jacques Perrin's Oscar-nominated "Winged Migration" does for birds what the 1996 documentary "Microcosmos" did for insects: It looks at them intimately, very close up, in shots that seem impossible to explain. That the two plots intersect (birds eat insects) is just one of those things...The movie, which is awesome to regard, is not particularly informative; it tells us that birds fly south in the winter (unless they live in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case they fly north)...But facts are not the purpose of "Winged Migration." It wants to allow us to look, simply look, at birds--and that goal it achieves magnificently. There are sights here I will not easily forget...I am pleased, actually, that the film has such a tilt toward the visual and away from information. I wouldn't have wanted the narrator to drone away in my ear, reading me encyclopedia articles and making sentimental comments about the beauty of it all. Life is a hard business, and birds work full time at it. I was shocked by a sequence showing ducks in magnificent flight against the sky, and then dropping one by one as hunters kill them. The birds have flown exhaustingly for days to arrive at this end. It's not so much that I blame the hunters as that I wish the ducks could shoot back.
