Narrated by John Krasinski ("13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi," NBC's "The Office," "Amazon's "Jack Ryan"), Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film "Born In China" takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden snub-nosed monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard-an elusive animal rarely caught on camera-faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet.

Born in China is okay for what it is so I'll leave it at that
28 April 2017 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

When I decided to watch a movie with my movie theatre-working friend today, this is what we ended up seeing. I don't normally watch nature documentaries and after seeing this one, it may be a while before I watch another one. The scenes are beautiful, John Krasinski does nice narration, some of the animal action and the speeding up of film to show nature evolving is nice. Perhaps too nice as I had to fight sleep most of the time but my friend did laugh at some of the scenes. The most interesting part for me was the footage of the filmmakers explaining waiting for the weather to be just right to film in during the end credits sequence. So on that note, I'll just say Born in China is worth a look if you like these kind of films.
