  • The Cove plays like a thriller. It has the breathless pace of a "Bourne" movie, but none of the comfort of fiction. This is documentary filmmaking at its most exciting and purposeful. show more

  • The caper-movie touches and cocky self-awareness may wear thin, but you can't discount the importance, or the horror, of that footage. show more

  • The film makes its case graphically, to say the least, yet muddies its bloody waters with an excess of artifice and a dearth of facts. show more

    I cannot believe this could go on in the world. Knowledge is Power! Thanks to Ric and Many like him for allowing us to see this. I can only hope that by making this movie it can lead to changes in the world. God Bless him and all the others involved in making a change.

    There are not many things in life that can provoke emotion and anger as much as this film. Ever person on the planet should see this film and then then take their emotion to do something about the injustice that is occurring to our oceans. This film is real, it is pure, and it deserves the Academy Award. Lets hope that they get it right for once.
