Behold the truth behind the entertainment.

Many of us have attended the famous "Sea World" where "wildlife" comes alive. Notice how I used wildlife as a quote. There's nothing wild or natural about captivating orca whales to mentally destroy them and cause them to attack instructors. "Blackfish" examines multiple orca whale attacks in amusement parks such as "Sea World" and how these whales are treated on a regular basis. It's not only depressing to see these magnificent creatures held captive for our pleasure, but it's terrifying on how these whales get so mentally tormented that they attack humans. Chilling true events are recovered with shocking real-life footage to capture what the intelligent and well-rounded narrators state. This isn't a bias documentary about animal cruelty where we'll get pictures of helpless dogs trap in cages (which is still wrong). This is a science-based statement reflecting the characteristics of one of the most powerful mammals in existence. Put together like almost a horror film with suspense to intoxicate the heart, "Blackfish" convinces us never to support the horrific mental and physical cruelty that orca whales face on a daily basis while being held in captivity. Hopefully this will convince the tourists not to go to "Sea World." It sure as hell convinced me.
