Pros: There is some great footage of big whales, including a right whale coming up to a researcher's boat and bumping it in a curious way. There's even a brief section on the mysterious beaked or bottlenose whale. Some lovely footage of dolphins interacting with people in Florida, Australia, and one other area whose name I didn't quite get. A respectable amount of facts/footage to filler.

There are NO killer whales. Ignore the cover image.

Cons: "We" are of course responsible for everything bad that ever happened to whales, even if (in the NZ dieoff cases and the mysterious mass strandings) they admit that they can't find a shred of evidence that points to manmade toxins. It's a little wearying to be constantly told you're at fault when you recycle everything you can get your hands on.

There is also a tolerable amount of irrelevant footage, such as the researcher's children being cute and the researcher playing his instrument.

Best Whale Video
Susan | Novato, CA USA | 10/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the story of Dr. Roger Payne who has studied the right whales in Argentena for years. There is the wonderful music that Dr. Payne creates in addition to great footage of whales. This is a worthwhile treat for any whale lover."
This is a must see!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who is intrigued by the great whales will love this video. Roger Payne can not be applauded enough for the knowledge and understanding of these great creatures that he has contributed. There is great love and respect for these denizens expressed in this video, and an important message for the future. Five stars is not enough to praise this effort!"
