Film Review – The Cove (2009)

The Cove

The Cove

I only recently came across this film.

It’s the story, as told by himself, of Ric O’Barry, the guy who  trained  Flipper the Dolphin for the original TV series (actually a number of dolphins).

After finding fame and fortune doing that, he discovered just how these and other cetaceans are captured and has made it his life goal to stop it.

If you are an environmentalist or animal lover you will find it interesting, strangely uplifting  but deeply disturbing.

If you are a techno-junkie you will love the high tech used to get the footage.

If you are interested in how Governments, corporations and vested interests (in this case the International Whaling Commission) will collude for money you will find it reinforces everything you think.

If you simply admire people who have a belief and stand up for their principles, look no further than Ric O’Barry.

Whoever you are, you will probably never want to visit a dolphin show again.
