'The Wild Life' Blu-Ray Review

Our story opens with a parrot named Mak (David Howard) telling us about a man named Robinson Crusoe (Yuri Lowenthal). Now Crusoe was sailing the Pacific Ocean and his ship runs into a terrible storm. The ship can't handle the weather and Crusoe and his dog Aynsley make it to a small island with some pretty quirky animals. Mak was out with some of his friends just strolling down the beach when they run into Crusoe. The problem is that the animals had no idea what Crusoe was, they had never seen a human before. At first the animals were very suspicious of Crusoe but as time went on they realized that this man actually needed them to survive. You see Crusoe was pretty clumsy.

Some of the other animals were a tapir named Rosie (Laila Berzins), an anteater named  Epi (Sandy Fox) and a almost blind goat named Scrubby (Joey Caman). Crusoe needed a place to stay and it's Mac who at first decided to help this human. Little by little the other animals lend a hand and Crusoe has a place to lay his head when he wants to sleep. The animals were pretty lazy. You see, they actually could have laid back and eaten bugs all day and would have been happy. It was Mac who always questioned if there was more to the world than just their little island. Life becomes complicated when two cats land on the island and stir things up. The cats want to take over control of the island but when Crusoe and the gang realize what they're up to all the chaos begins.

Lionsgate brings this wonderful story to Blu-Ray on November 29th, 2016. The quality of the Blu-Ray is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. Children will love the animation and story, and the whole family can sit back and enjoy this wonderful tale of adventure. You will definitely want to add this one to that personal library. Enjoy.
