Free Willy 3: The Rescue

reviewed by Vivian Rose, age 14, from US

"Free Willy 3: The Rescue," the latest thorn in a movie critic's side, is such a bore that movie theatres should do their patrons a favor and give free coffee away at the concession stand. (I kept wishing I had some to help me stay awake through the movie. Afterward, I thought that I should have stayed home and spent two hours watching the Nature Channel.)

It's about Willy, the whale, and his human friend, Jessie, a youngish male adult in training to become a marine biologist. Jessie lands an internship with several scientists who are trying to ascertain the cause of the declining whale population. Meanwhile, the son of an illegal whaler decides he doesn't approve of his father's trade and befriends Willy and Jessie. Sound familiar?

Yes, it's pretty close to the plot of the first two movies (neither of which I liked). Jessie rescues Willy #1. Jessie rescues Willy #2. And now Jessie rescues Willy #3.

If you happen to be a whale, a kid under ten, or a marine biologist, you'll probably find this movie a whole lot more entertaining than I did. But don't see it just because you want to save the whales or are an animal lover: I love animals, and I still hated it.

My rating : 1 star

Rating : PG
