I have to say I walked into the movie expecting it to be another kids movie I would have to sit through. The reality was that it was a story that had great actors with an amazing story that happened to be true. I looked over to my fiance and she was crying half way through the movie. I think it is a story that should be told and it was done in a terrific way.

Review of Dolphin Tale

3 years ago at Mar 15 21:32
For a film that's supposed to be based off a true story, the whole film feels as fake as the many prosthetic tales made for the star of the film; a dolphin named Winter.

The movie is about a young boy named Sawyer, who is very anti-social, and not doing very well in Summer school. One day, he finds a beached dolphin entangled in a rope and a crab trap. The boy immediately has feeli... read more

Through the loving care of the Florida Marine Aquarium and two young children, Winter (who plays herself) learns to swim without her tail and later receives ... (more)

“Ahhh...Dolphin Tale...

I have to say,it's not that I was expecting an oscar-material type movie,but I was expecting a little more....a little more dimension,you know?Maybe a little more character development or fleshed out characters...maybe a little less cheesiness and songs just so playing at the right time...However,I did enjoy it very much.So what,it's no mind-blowing stuff but it sure is heartwarming...and hopeful...and sweet...and memorable.And if that doesn't make a nice film, I don't know what does.

An average movie

“Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but Nick, my step-son, really loved it the first time he watched the damned thing so I thought we should check it out together. Honestly, I didn’t like it much, I’m afraid. I mean, basically, it is one of your typical sappy family features and, either, you are 12 years old or you love this kind of flicks or it will pretty much really bore you. Sure, it is based on a rather amazing story and, indeed, it is actually a powerful tearjerker with some touching scenes here and there but they added way too many sub-plots in my opinion. On top of my head, I could name a few : the main character has some problem at school, his father left him, his cousin comes back wounded from an unknown war, there is a storm, they want to close down the anima” read more

“A sweet down to earth film but It was just really too long of a film, with these kinds there is only so much you can do with the story, ans Harry Connick Jr should stick to acting instead of boring me with saying tune all the time on American Idol.” read more

“Dolphin Tale was a cute movie that is kind of like a new take of Flipper. The cast is good with Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, and Morgan Freeman. I think it was really interesting to see a real dolphin with this kind of problem. The acting was good especially from good ole Winter the dolphin. The plot was different and had a heart to it. It's a nice family movie to watch.” read more

Review of Dolphin Tale

“For a film that's supposed to be based off a true story, the whole film feels as fake as the many prosthetic tales made for the star of the film; a dolphin named Winter.

The movie is about a young boy named Sawyer, who is very anti-social, and not doing very well in Summer school. One day, he finds a beached dolphin entangled in a rope and a crab trap. The boy immediately has feelings for the dolphin, and stops by the marine animals hospital everyday to check on the creature. It appears there is little hope for the dolphin to survive, do the dolphin's tale (or more specifically; lack of).

Among many problems with this film, the biggest is the movie's lack of a reason to exist. The story has obviously been greatly fabricated from it's source, the acting is passible, th” read more

"I suspect I'd feel much much more inspired if I went and actually met Winter than I felt while watching the bland version of her story that is told in this film. The movie's got good intentions, but there's not a lot to get excited about here. "

“HIgh FIVE to the movie, indeed one of my favorites. A great inspirational and motivational movie, especially recommended for those who have lost hope in life due to some tragedy.

Dolphin Tale, inspired by the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who joined hand to save her life. The core story is about a young dolphin caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where her fight for survival has just begun.

To sve the life of Winter her infected tail had to be amputated and without a tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy ” read more

Ashley, Morgan, and Harry made roles down to earth characters come to life. Morgan Freeman did a great job in supporting role. The roles that took over the screen was that of the two kids and the dolphin. I can see a big future for the two kid actors.

I love the tie in of the wounded warriors and the damaged dolphin tail. It was one of those movies you have to see when you think life is hard and you want t” read more
