5.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning footage of the world's greatest predators
This is a superb piece of natural history film making, even by the BBC natural history unit's high standards. The series focuses on the great predators of the animal world and how they catch their prey- but it's not all blood and guts, the focus is on how predators have evolved sophisticated adaptations to "outwit" their prey.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nature goes Techno
Why not present nice wild life scenes set to sound with annoying weird electronic whatever? Well, sure there are 1000 reasons, which none of them Mr John Hannah has thought of. Some stunning footage, high frequently cut, but don't forget your earplugs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning footage of the world's greatest predators, 17 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Predators [DVD] (DVD)
This is a superb piece of natural history film making, even by the BBC natural history unit's high standards. The series focuses on the great predators of the animal world and how they catch their prey- but it's not all blood and guts, the focus is on how predators have evolved sophisticated adaptations to "outwit" their prey. Innovative film-making techniques make the series visually stunning as well as informative. At one point viewers are taken aboard a golden eagle as it hunts for mountain hares: the eagle's reaction times are beyond belief! A must for anyone with an interest in natural history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing special effects of the worlds greatest predators, 16 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Predators [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Predators captures for the first time the moment where life hangs in the balance, the split second that the human eye would never normally see. Using on-board miniaturised cameras, action replay and computer animation, tactics are analysed from every angle to reveal the awesome strength and determination of a predator and the matching skill of the prey. This is not a story of blood and guts - it is the behind-the-scenes drama of a gripping battle of wits that decides which animals get a meal or which escape becoming one. Predators is a new breed of natural history television. Animals are built for the critical moments in life when predator and prey clash, and like the goals in a football match these events happen so fast that to analyse them they need to be deconstructed and reconstructed to sense the acute action and drama. Only then does it emerge that a sprinting cheetah actually spends 50% of the time with all its feet off the ground, a diving gannet hits the water at 60mph and giant hornets can kill 30,000 bees in just three hours.

Bought this for 1p second hand plus postage (£1:26) works fine apart from one jump but content is good and the specialist photography is excellent

4.0 out of 5 stars Killer Instinct, 15 April 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Predators [DVD] (DVD)
Wolves are my favorite critturs, and for the birds give me an eagle every time, I found this film very beautiful - appealing and yet the fact that its moments of savagery were so appealing made me see myself differently, was I right to be so often on the side of the killers,I do not know, but for anyone who love Wild life that is really wild buy this disc, you will play it often pure escapism
