Critic Reviews for Eye of the Dolphin

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6)

There's a pleasantly dreamy quality to much of Eye of the Dolphin, and that goes a long way toward enabling audiences to ignore the formulaic plot and enjoy the laid-back charms of this innocuous indie.

For all its good intentions, Eye of the Dolphin is unsteady and amateurish, with its own problems in getting its message across.

[An] unassuming, but sadly unexciting, family film.

Audience Reviews for Eye of the Dolphin

Acting is not very good, but it was okay. I was bored in the beginning but it eventually caught my attention and I finished it. I like the story...
