Samuel L. Jackson narrates African Cats and it isn't his finest performance I'm afraid. It isn't totally his fault as the script he was given was rather weak and for me was the only let down of an other wise wonderful wildlife film. It is nice to see Disney delve back into wildlife films as they were a studio which made them prodigiously many years ago. The problem here is that the film doesn't seem to know who its target audience is. The script is too child orientated to really satisfy adults, and yet the film is donating a set amount of revenue for African conservation groups, which if is the case, means surely getting bums on seats is the priority. Unfortunately the child like script isn't going to get adults in which means less revenue.
