Blu-ray Review - Nature: Jungle Eagle


The docile PBS program "Nature" takes a more summer blockbustery approach with its latest offering, "Jungle Eagle."

Instead, it's a bit of an "Ocean's Eleven" sequel, with Beeley and his crew attempting to infiltrate an impenetrable treetop fortress, planting cameras and carefully timing visits to avoid being torn to shreds by the very beast they're seeking to observe. Beeley definitely deserves credit for building excitement, helping goose the educational aspects of an otherwise passive nature documentary. Read the rest at
