I have to say that Deep in the Heart: A Texas Wildlife Story is one of the best wildlife documentaries that I have seen in a very long time. Written and directed by Ben Masters, this is the best look at the wildlife and nature of Texas that has ever been created. It is going to wow you and also make you think, think about the way we treat nature and what we can do to help.

The Movie Review
A huge part of the appeal of this documentary is the narration. Deep in the Heart: A Texas Wildlife Story is narrated by Mathew McConaughey and he does a tremendous job. He is not only informative; his soothing voice gets you more invested and interested in what is happening on screen.
I knew that Texas was a huge and very diverse state, but I was truly blown away at just how diverse it is. From huge mountains to the Gulf of Mexico, this documentary hits all the major things and areas that make Texas so great. We get to see the small creatures that call the lone star state home as well as larger more imposing animals like mountain lions!
I learned so much about the wildlife of Texas with this documentary and that was great. However, it also can be hard-hitting as we learn about the dangers that many of these species face because of things that we do! It also teaches about the importance of conservation in Texas to try and help these amazing creatures thrive.
You do not even have to be massively into wildlife documentaries to enjoy this thanks to the incredible way it is made. Deep in the Heart: A Texas Wildlife Story is a documentary that grabs you right from the start and keeps your attention all the way to the very end.
The main reason for this is the beautiful way that it is shot. This is one of the most incredible looking documentaries I have ever seen and I wish that I could have seen it in a theatre. However, I was very excited to see this in the comfort of my own home in 4K, it looked amazing! Texas is such a colorful State, that it really is going to pop when you watch it in 4K.
While I will admit that the reason, I wanted to see this was because I love animals and I thought it would be a “nice” watch. It certainly was fun and cute to watch, but I was left with even more of an appreciation for nature and it made me want to try better to not leave a negative impact on the Earth that can affect amazing creatures like the ones showcased in this documentary.
If you have to watch just one nature documentary this year, Deep in the Heart: A Texas Wildlife Story has to be it. The wife and I both loved this and felt that it told a great story about the wildlife in Texas and the danger it faces. It is entertaining from start to end and you are certainly going to want to talk about it after!
- This is one of the best documentaries I have seen
- The way it is shot is breathtaking
- Mathew McConaughey is wonderful as the narrator
- It will make you have a deeper appreciation for nature
- I think you really have to see this in 4K to get the full benefit of it
- It is a shame that this was only released in theatres in Texas, I would have loved to have seen it on the big screen
