Blackfish expands on the discussion of keeping such intelligent creatures in captivity.see more...

- "This documentary was really interesting, and I found it to be very informative on the nature of Sea World and how they mistreat their aquatic animals." in 20 reviews
I enjoyed the movie because of all the old footage you got to see and the story behind how they got the orca's originally. I do how ever think everyone watching this documentary do research afterward on the people in this film because a lot of them have said that their stories and words were twisted among other things they found wrong with the film.
This is a powerful documentary. If you plan to watch this make sure you also plan on a box of tissues. The treatment of these beautiful animals at Sea World is sickening. Sea World and similar aquarium attractions need to be SHUT down,
This really made me feel terrible about ever going to seaworld! it's a very honest look into the practices of whale captivity. this movie is what made me become a vegetarian. not that i was eating whales before, just to clarify.
This film really made me see Sea World differently. I've watched it at least five times. And Sea World was my favorite theme park! But the way these whales are living in such small areas is just heart breaking. Must watch.
This documentary was really interesting, and I found it to be very informative on the nature of Sea World and how they mistreat their aquatic animals. It was great to watch, but the subject is saddening (yet eye-opening)!
This documentary is shocking, disturbing. SeaWorld is an absolute disgrace and this documentary shows just how awful they treat the beautiful whales. Boycott SeaWorld!
This movie brings you inside the world of seaworld's orca whales. You truly feel bad for these giant Whales who are trapped inside small cages. It is an amazing movie and you learn a lot from watching it! I watched it for free on netflix. Highly recommend.
This documentary is very eye opening and very informative, my heart broke and I cried at some parts. For those who say that this is false representing seaworld, seriously? No animal deserves to be locked up to be deprived of food just to do stupid tricks.
Wow this documentary was an eye opener i really enjoyed going to sea world when i was a child but never knew of all the behind the scenes and how these animals suffer ! i don't think i will be visiting sea world ever again after watching this
Black fish has opened my eyes to a whole new light. this movie is very enlightening and very, very sad. it helps you understand the animals better and will make you hate all amusement parks that keep these animals captive for entertainment.
