As I’ve mentioned many times Johnny has a love for animals. Granted, his focus is on sea life I thought this movie would be perfect for him. He was super excited to see this movie. We had just watched Oceans the night before and he loved it. He loved as it showed not only the good side of flamingos but also the bad. It doesn’t just show you the historical side of the bird it walks you through the life. Johnny absolutely loved when all the birds were together and the noise they could make. If you have surround sound this movie will truly let you realize how great it is.

As a Mom I thought what a great way to get children excited about topics they otherwise wouldn’t have learned about. The picture and clarity of this movie is amazing. There are certain scenes in this movie that could almost make you feel as though you were right there! Johnny is almost 10 years old and it held his attention. I worry though that for a young child this movie would be too much. Gavin walked away in the first ten minutes although popped in and out and had moments where he was definitely interested.

You can purchase The Crimson Wing from on DVD for $29.99 or the DVD & Blu-Ray Combo pack for $39.99
