Storyline

With high speed camerawork and breakthrough new science, we enter the fast-paced world of hummingbirds as never before. Speed is their middle name. Their lives are moving faster than the eye can see. They possess natural born super powers that enable them to fly backwards, upside-down, and float in mid-air. And for the first time, we see them mate, lay eggs, fight, and raise families in intimate detail. They are great athletes, tender mothers, brave in combat, and up for any challenge. They are Super Hummingbirds, the smallest, most brilliant birds on earth.

Fantastic Photography but Poor on Evolution
25 November 2016 | by eiremike-84699See all my reviews

This documentary gets a 10 for the photography and a 10 for the science that the scientists are shown conducting, but a big 0 for the frequent references to "design" or suggestions that the creatures are somehow deciding to adapt themselves to their environments in particular ways. This kind of casual misrepresentation of evolution does a profound disservice to one of the most powerful scientific ideas in the history of humankind. David Attenborough, by way of contrast, always gets this kind of thing right, referring to evolution as a process that operates blindly on creatures without conscious intent or goal. Many of the American produced (or dubbed) nature documentaries take the inaccurate approach of Super Hummingbirds, which is a travesty.

This is very persnickety of me, but I also did not care for the narrator, Patricia Clarkson. She had a whispery, rather precious delivery that I found very distracting.
