Critic Reviews for Blackfish
A troubling exposé of Sea World's hazardous entertainment trade.
Blackfish makes an especially strong case for the innate marvel of these animals: that they are smart, social, communicative and loving.
In the wild, orcas live between 50 and a hundred years. In captivity, it's half that. It's simply a strong argument to free all the Willies.
"Blackfish" is a disturbing movie, one that will make you rethink parks like SeaWorld and their value.
Blackfish is intended to rattle and provoke in the hopes of bringing about change.
Audience Reviews for Blackfish
A revolting and well-edited documentary that exposes the infuriating reality behind aquatic shows performed by poor orcas that are kept in captivity and in extremely cruel conditions - and let's only hope it will make people reconsider going to parks like SeaWorld ever again.
Blackfish is an eye-opening exploit drenched in heartbreak and controversy as it explores the extent of captivity. A documentary hell-bent on impact and change that is both memorable and provoking. 4.5/5
A heart-wrenching, truly saddening documentary which concerns the corrupt practices of SeaWorld, notably how they put the well-being of their trainers on the line in the name of money and profits. This film is geared to get the viewer angry, and it does that by giving many examples of how SeaWorld knew what they were doing was wrong, but still lied about it to cover their own tracks. The death of Dawn Brancheau and how they have the gaul to blame her for her demise instead of the killer whale that viciously murdered her. It is a heavy film, at times threatening to pummel the viewer down into submission, but ultimately is an effective one that will not leave you quickly.
