Movie Reviews

One of the best family films.
River Blue | Minnesota, USA | 02/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Free Willy 3 is primarily about Max, an intelligent, inquisitive ten-year-old who accompanies his father on a whaling expedition. His conscience bothers him about his father's career, but instead of taking the usual route of performing a string of silly pranks (like you would see in a lot of children's shows), he tries reasoning with his dad. He also asks question after question -- not just about the technical aspects of whaling, but he also delves deeper into the more important questions of life ("Do you always have to do the right thing, even if it hurts?"). One of the things I liked best about Free Willy 3 was the realistic and sympathetic portrayal of the father, even though he was the "villain" of the story. He was a man doing a job that has been in his family for years, and without it he wasn't sure who he was. Despite having a career others disagreed with, he was a caring, compassionate person who loved his son. Other characters are drawn out nicely as well -- Jesse and Randolph, from the first two films, and their new co-workers on the sea -- showing their tempers as well as their more positive sides.Couple all these features with stunning cinematography and a beautiful score, and you have one fine film!"
The Rescue-The Best In The Willy Trilogy
Lydia | Massachusetts | 01/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is great, despite what you may be thinking. More realistic that Free Willy 1 and 2, it's plot is seamless and easy to believe. Jesse (Jason James Richter) interns with Randolph (Schellenburg, the Native American guy) as a research assistant. They find Willy with Jesse's harmonica call played 24 hours a day throughout the Canadian sea. They encounter a whaling boat, but the captain's son, ten year old Max, is silently opposed to whaling. Max and Jesse work together to try and stop the whaling boat. It isn't kid-ish like the other two Willy movies, and features less of Jesse. The whales are beautiful, and there is a pleasant surprize at the end. Hopefully there are more Willy movies ready to come out!"
Free Willy 3
S. Oxford | Santa Clara CA | 08/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Free Willy 3, is a great follow up to the first two movies.
My oldest Son Derek, enjoys watching the first one so much,
after a hundered times or more, its time to move on. So
I bought Free Willy 2, then this latest one Free Willy 3.
I the parent, injoyed the movie alot but for my son I think
it was a little bit hard for him to watch, the harpooning of
whales I think bothered him, he see's Willy as his friend,
and is very hard to see a friend get hurt. I still think if
your a Free Willy fan you need to have the hole set. Bring on
Free Willy 4.

They Replaced Jessie

(2 out of 5 stars)

"I liked this movie but they replaced Jessie. They had This 10 year old kind of come in and try to be the hero. I mean what was so special about the first too movies is that Jessie was the only one Willy trusted and then they had this ten year old come in and all of the sudden he and Willy were special friends. They should have left it alone with that special friendship between Willy and Jessie."
