Very good for kids to see and understand the circle of life.

As breathtaking as the imagery is, however, the script, which is narrated by John Krasinski, is a mess of anthropomorphic goop.

The film patly confirms what The Lion King already taught '90s kids: we should take comfort in knowing that everything in life is natural when seen as part of the circle of life, as surprisingly effective voiceover narrator John Krasinski reminds us.

To the extent that Born in China is, by its very existence, a minor act of cross-cultural diplomacy, its most progressive effect is to unveil the majestic diversity of Chinese landscapes.
