Impressive to view in Imax 3-D, it's a true story that will inspire viewers to plant a milkweed garden.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2015-06-04


You'll leave better informed about monarchs and environmental concerns, but also a little awed by the twists and turns and darn good luck behind a lot of scientific advancements.

Kim Ode, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2014-10-02


It's a story that begins and ends in Toronto and returns every year - and it's never been so spectacularly and passionately retold until now.

Marco Chown Oved, Toronto Star, 2013-04-12


Flight of the Butterflies stands out as one of the best of its genre.

Ivan Semeniuk, Globe and Mail, 2013-04-12


A feast for the eyes and clearly a labor of love, "Flight of the Butterflies" is one of the must-see 3-D IMAX movies.

John Hartl, Seattle Times, 2012-10-21


It's easy to forget "Flight of the Butterflies" is just a movie, as the 3-D documentary about monarch migrations looks and sounds so much like nature.
