My knowledge of Lemurs up until this point was simply that theyexisted. That and they look like squirrel monkeys. When I got theBlu-ray of this film, I groaned. "What is this? Looks like somethingtrying to capitalize off of the Madagascar movies." Then I noticed thatnone other than God himself (Morgan Freeman) was doing the narration,so I decided to embrace it. I embraced it by doing what most peopleshould before watching a nature documentary; I got really high. IslandOf Lemurs is a short, enjoyable film with vast, sweeping landscapes ofthe beautiful Island of Madagascar and the adorable, aforementioned,squirrel monkeys. The Blu-Ray/DVD combo also features the film in 3Dfor those who are lucky enough to afford said technology. The only drawback to this documentary is the run time. It clocks in at just 41minutes and for the asking retail price of $35.99, I feel that it's toosteep to warrant a purchase. Unless of course you just bought a 70-inchhigh-def television with your income taxes and need a tester DVD tothrow on and impress your friends, then Island Of Lemurs is right foryou!

It is a documentary short with a big message. Like an episode of David Attenborough's nature documentary series. I have never seen a live lemur nor I know their character like I do for other animals. So this film was a learning experience for me and I ask you to do the same, if you have zero knowledge about these wonderful creatures.
I enjoyed it, but still think they did not use the concept properly. Lacks the depth, I mean going details in scientific research. They have given, but only limited. They have started it by saying how ancient they are and who the reason for the existence of human today. How they found their perfect home in an uninhabited island millions of years ago. Very informative.
It was narrated by the actor Morgan Freeman. After the brief introduction, the rest of the film focused to tell an American primatologist's effort to study these animals and educate the local people how precious they are. The pride of Madagascar. I really surprised to learn lots of things, especially about their varieties. But specifying their evolution would have been even better. Since it was a short film, there were restrictions for many things.
"Lemurs are Madagascar's living treasure."
Once again a film to point out the human's destruction of mother nature. Those who rely on them completely are suffering. Lemurs are the main animal in the Madagascar, but since the humans present from the last two millennia, their numbers are going down. Now Madagascar's the only and final frontier for them. Whatever happened in the past, its time in this third millennium to bring the life back of the old world. Surely every one of us has a small offering that helps to restore it, only we've to commit it right away.
So this is a rare documentary. They might have already made a better documentary about the lemurs than this one, but I have never seen them. Since I am a film fanatic, this film came to my notice, but did not take it seriously until now. Mainly because nothing from the poster interested me. I thought it was one of those failed documentary films, with usually tried to impress with the technical aspect like predominated with the digital 3D visuals. I realised now how wrong I was.
The poster looks very creepy. I don't think the little kids would want to watch it if they see the film poster first. I thought it was an animation, about the ancient creatures like they do for the dinosaurs. The black lemur with the big blue eyes on the poster looked like an animated character, but he's real. So watch it to educate yourself, particularly if you are a nature and animal lover. Recommended!
