Movie Reviews

(3 out of 5 stars)

"It's ok. It has momments where it's really exciting and in the moment, but it wasn't enough to keep me entertand. Free Willy is more my style because it has action and is more recent. This might be becaus Namu is about the first whale capurted and they think it will kill everyone. But this is a good movie, and is very emotional in the end."
A very sweet film

"This movie was made in the 60s, but wears well. It is the true story of the first killer whale ever captured. Better than the Free Willy movies. And if your kids ever saw Shamu at SeaWorld and wondered what Shamu means, it means "friend of Namu" -- yes, this Namu in the movie."
