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.
There's real heart to be found in the story but it comes along with borderline saccharine sentimentality, a too facile ending, and clean outcomes that aren't earned.
As Eye of the Dolphin makes some jarringly contrived plot twists, a viewer can imagine writer/director/executive producer Michael Sellers listing his assets and pondering how to combine them for one movie.
A limp coming-of-age tale set in the Bahamas.
Blandly acted, idiotically written, and incomprehensibly directed, "Eye of the Dolphin" is quite possibly one of the most incompetently made films I have ever seen.
A beautiful Grand Bahama island setting and majestic sea creatures can't offset an inert script and lackluster acting.
Drugs and drinking make waves in family drama.
The underwater parts of Eye of the Dolphin are kind of pretty. Unfortunately, the rest of this waterlogged drama is pretty ugly.
Eye of the Dolphin is much better than most films of this sort, and if it helps a generation of young girls want to grow up to swim with live dolphins rather than groom My Little Ponys, that's certainly not a bad thing at all.
A lonely dolphin serves as a mediator in the reconciliation of a father and daughter who don't know how to connect with each other.
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...
A harmless parade of seaside cliches.
