After witnessing his mate and child's death from Nolan's hands, Orca, the killer whale, goes on a rampage in the fishermen's harbor. Under the villagers' pressure, Nolan, Rachel and an Indian sail after the great beast, who will bring them on his own turf. Written by

Whales and dolphins don't breathe automatically like humans do. They sleep with half of their brain at a time because they need to come to the surface to breathe. If someone really tranquilized an orca like Nolan did with the needle in the harpoon, both halves of its brain would be asleep at the same time, and it would stop breathing and drown. See more
If you're so sure I can't catch a killer whale, why are you so upset?
Listen, you won't catch one, but you might butcher a couple dozen in the attempt!
Oh, that's not my style at all.
My Love, We Are One
