Great movie, but a little long
I am a HUGE fan of "feel-good" movies and this movie is right up there with the rest of them. To me, this was a modern day "Free Willy", but based in fact.
It is at the center, a love story, between a news reporter and an ex who works for Greenpeace who he still has feelings for. It also is the story of how people from different backgrounds, nations, and beliefs can come together for the good of nature.
I'm NOT going to lie, I'm a man's man and there were moments that I actually teared up during this movie. The big one is a HUGE spoiler, so I don't want to say what it is, but your eyes will tell you for SURE.
It's a VERY heartwarming film and definitely one the whole family can see.
My main problem with this movie, however, is its length and it's enough for me to knock it down from "Must Go" to "Go". The pacing is a little slow, and even though it clocks in at around 1:45, it feels longer than that. If that's NOT a problem for you, then by all means, go see it!
