Critic Reviews for Dolphin Tale 2
This is innocuous, heart-in-the-right-place family fare, but its well-earned points about animal rights and preservation would be better taken if the relentless sentimentality didn't force viewers into flippers-in-the-air submission.
Some angst away from the dolphin tank feels like padding, but there's enough bona fide narrative to please tomorrow's marine biologists and their parents.
In a world full of cheapened, bombastic entertainment aimed at children, this modest, honest little movie feels special in its own way.
"Dolphin Tale 2" cares about the right things: the details of marine rescue, the dedication of the individuals involved, and the lives and personalities of the animals under their care.
Children will revel in Dolphin Tale 2 with its rapturous, lovingly filmed sequences of dolphins playing, swimming, and generally frolicking about with each other and with their human friends.
Audience Reviews for Dolphin Tale 2
A heartwarming sequel with Winter, everyone's favourite dolphin. Whilst the sequel is not as good as the original it still keeps you entertained.
Dolphin Tale 2 is a sweet, albeit slight family film. Well-meaning and cute, the actors are all spot on with the two younger kids not being overly cutesy. The film works as wholesome and charming family entertainment, even if the emotional impact isn't as great this time around. Rating: 64
While it may not have the emotional impact that the first film did, I really admire the fact that both films are based on the continuing true story of these people. These filmmakers really to feel like they care about this incredible story, but the big issue this film has is that it should have waited a little longer to be made, because it does not have enough material to fill it's running time. Yes, it has some very genuine moments, the cast is loveable and the animals are the main focus in the film once again, and yes those portions are all terrific, but there is something off the entire time, making it a little distant from what made the first one special. Again, it is still based on the true story, so there are no flaws in the film, but I just wish they had waited to explore more. "Dolphin Tale 2" is a very well-written film that is good for anyone of any age and I had a very good time watching it. It is a solid film that does not quite compare to it's predecessor but all the heart is still in the right place!
