IMAX: Born to Be Wild 3D


IMAX: Born to Be Wild 3D Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

'Born to Be Wild' observes various orphaned jungle animals and their day-to-day behavioral interactions with the individuals who rescue them and raise them to adulthood. The film unfurls in two separate geographic spheres, one following baby orangutans and other, baby elephant calves.

IMAX: Born to Be Wild 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Like its 2D counterpart, the 3D release of Born to Be Wild dazzles as much as it delights, and not just because of David Douglas and his team's stunning photography. While not every shot has been captured in native 3D, the depth and dimensionality of the 1080p/MVC-encoded image is quite remarkable. Orangutans swing into the foreground and mug for the camera, baby elephant trunks snake toward the screen, trees retreat into the folds of a seemingly endless jungle, grass plains extend to the horizon, and the animals are showcased with a reach-out-and-touch-em realism that makes the experience that much more absorbing and, when it comes right down to it, entertaining for young viewers. The resulting 3D experience is a playful one, forgoing subtlety on occasion to indulge in a few pop-out pranks that will leave children grinning from ear to ear. And it all happens without any troubling aliasing or ghosting. Even displays that are prone to crosstalk won't have much of an issue with Born to Be Wild 3D. In fact, three instances of shimmering are the only anomalies that caught my eye this time around, negligible as they were.

Both the 2D and 3D presentations preserve every unruly orangutan hair, craggy elephant wrinkle, wiry Savannah twig, and windswept rainforest leaf that leaps, plods, floats and flitters across the screen. Lush jungle greens, dusty oranges and earthy browns, lifelike skintones, and savory black levels bring the image to life, complete with consistent contrast (hot as it inherently may be) and striking clarity. Distracting noise and significant compression issues (macroblocking, banding and the like) are nowhere to be found either, and only the slightest hint of infrequent crush caught my attention (before being summarily dismissed). All the while, edge definition remains crisp and refined, textures and fine details are impeccably resolved, and nary a scene goes by that doesn't have a bounty of visual wonders to offer the wide-eyed kids and equally wide-eyed adults in the room. Born to Be Wild 3D is one of the better 3D nature documentaries on the market and, so long as its rather high price point isn't a deal breaker, one that proves to be well worth the investment.

IMAX: Born to Be Wild 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Born to Be Wild's absorbing DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track presses in and envelops the listener, creating a spectacularly immersive soundfield that brings the rainforests of Borneo and the plains of Kenya to startling home theater life. Rear speaker activity is as engaging and playful as the orphaned orangutans and baby elephants on screen, serving up aggressive jungle ambience, impressive cross-channel pans, remarkably convincing directional effects, or some other sonic treat with every scene. Mark Mothersbaugh's music, meanwhile, wraps itself around the soundstage like a warm blanket, surging and relenting without ever threatening the mix's near-perfect prioritization. The LFE channel makes its presence known too, romping about with weighty elephant stomps, hearty earth-shakes, and plenty of lively, low-end oomph. Through it all, voices are clean and clear (whether indoors or out), air hiss and wind noise are kept to a reasonable minimum, and Morgan Freeman's narration is strong and steady.

My only complaint? Every now and then, the rear speakers are a bit too eager to join in the fun. In one scene, an orangutan wrecks one of the supply rooms at Camp Leakey. As the animal crinkles some plastic wrap, the sound comes from every direction, as if we're suddenly surrounded by orangutans rustling through a kitchen instead of one orangutan sitting directly ahead of us. Thankfully, such shortcomings are few and far between and rarely detract from the experience. Born to Be Wild's lossless track is as satisfying as its video presentation. Fans of all ages will be thrilled.
