Entertainment Weekly
"With a patient gaze grounded in respect and adoration for his subject, director Otto Bell delicately observes the rousing tale of 13-year-old Aisholpan, a young girl who bucks the ancient, male-dominated tradition of eagle hunting in Mongolia." -- Grade: B
A.V. Club
"THE EAGLE HUNTRESS isn?t critical. It wants to make your heart swell, and it does a fine job of it." -- Grade: B
3 stars out of 4 -- "Bravo to veteran nature cinematographer Simon Niblett for devising ways to safely shoot such spectacular action -- from a self-made drone and a crane to an ?eagle cam" that employs a dog?s harness -- in such risky environs."
Los Angeles Times
"As unlikely as it is enchanting, THE EAGLE HUNTRESS tells its documentary story with such sureness that falling under its sway is all but inevitable."
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "[F]rom the moment we see Aisholpan climb down a steep slope on the snow-covered Altai Mountains to capture an eaglet for training, we're hooked."
New York Times
"[T]hrilling....The story is a simple and appealing fable of indomitability and father-daughter companionship."
Washington Post
"[I]t offers inspiration...taking the audience on a beautiful, thrilling journey to a part of the world that isstill largely inaccessible. And it introduces them to a young woman who gives bravery a bracing, unforgettable face."
The Guardian
"This is a very nicely filmed piece of work. Aisholpan is very personable, and there are some eagle-vs-prey scenes that could go into PLANET EARTH II."
