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.

Hey there! After seeing what Jamanise do to the Delphine I feeled so sick and helpless. Can t belive whats going on in this sick wold. It s like always, money money money makes people to animals. I give my vote for this documentary 4 stars but for the Team who fights against this 5 Stars. You all sould see this Movie and start doing more to not ignore killing of Dolphins. This F ing Japanise are

I wrote to both local theaters requesting a showing- this area has an indian tribe that REALLY wants to kill whales so we'll see.

The Hollywood Reporter
Shot rivetingly by cinematographer Brooke Aitken, who combines digital, night-vision and thermal-imaging formats into a formidable package, the footage is edited tautly by Geoffrey Richman and enhanced measurably by J. Ralph's suspenseful score. Full Review
San Francisco Chronicle
The caper-movie touches and cocky self-awareness may wear thin, but you can't discount the importance, or the horror, of that footage. Full Review
The New York Times
Like the director's cover story, the movie is a Trojan horse: an exceptionally well-made documentary that unfolds like a spy thriller, complete with bugged hotel rooms, clandestine derring-do and mysterious men in gray flannel suits. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
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. Full Review
Eco-activist documentaries don't get much more compelling than The Cove, an impassioned piece of advocacy filmmaking that follows "Flipper" trainer-turned-marine crusader Richard O'Barry in his efforts to end dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan. Full Review
