If you are expecting some footage about a tiger, you are looking a wrong adress ! it's all about Soon park, his martyrdom waiting a glimps of tiger, about what he was (Soon park not tiger) eating during months, how lonely he was feeling ....than about Chris Morgan, following Soon Park, about he was in love about tiger, how smart he was(Chris Morgan not tiger), following a path of both.

2.0 out of 5 starsToo much Chris Morgan, not enough tigers!19 Oct 2012
By triple0triple1 - Published on Amazon.com
I wish they would've showed more of Park's amazing footage of the Siberian tigers, with an offscreen narrator. But there's maybe 20 minutes of that great tiger footage and the rest is close ups of Chris Morgan (who thinks we should know who he is) in a documentary of Chris Morgan. Instead of the narration being about Park and the families of these rare tigers, we hear a lot Chris Morgan saying "I" and "me" in just about every sentence. Park has a right to be aggrieved if he sees this, because it was his years of solitude and danger in the Siberian wilderness that made it all possible, and then Chris Morgan pops up and makes it more of a story about Chris Morgan. In the end, there's even too much Park. This documentary is an hour long and like I said there is maybe 20 minutes of tiger footage.

4.0 out of 5 starsGreat insight20 Oct 2012

Despite the fact that indeed there is bit of camerawork devoted to the host, he has a job to do and he does it well. As I watch this show I am moved by the story of not only the tigers, but the man who brought them to us. His story and his sacrifices are incomprehensible by today's standards and I appreciate them. One quote I remember is that in the city "people are god, in nature, not so". (Loosely translated). His insight into the love of nature, (even when it could kill him in one instance), and his amazing discipline, is so very rare these days. He is an inspiration to people of every age. Sooyong Park is to be admired and supported as he understands the word "devotion" and the knowledge that comes from that. His insight on the human situation of solitude is not to be missed also. Well done.
