About the Movie
Killer whales are beloved, majestic, friendly giants, yet infamous for their capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of the notorious performing whale Tilikum, who — unlike any orca in the wild — has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. Blackfish expands on the discussion of keeping such intelligent creatures in captivity.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It not only delivers astonishing, suspenseful footage that makes it a legitimate thriller, but also serves up thoughtful meditations about using wild animals for our own entertainment.
Fresh: "Blackfish" is no trumped up horror story fueled by Hollywood brand names and special effects. In this riveting documentary directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, all of the creatures are real, and all seem entitled to the serious chip on their shoulders.
Fresh: Informative, earnest, but less than briskly paced.
Fresh: 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.
Amazing documentary reccomed you watch this
If you LOVE animals watch it... If you hunt for sport you'll probably be bored. Could go on and on about all that I love about this movie. Watch it
I have been going to Seaworld for ever and this movie made my eyes open because i love these animals i have been studying them for my whole life and i had no idea about the dangers and such. When you talk to people about these amazing creatures they would say Oh My God! they kill people and are so dangerous thats not true. They don't have a chose they are forced to do this! So this movie is just solo inspiring
