i love it, 21 September 2003
Author: melissa duquette from montreal, quebec

I love this movie, it's not the best that I ever saw but it really good. The movies of free Willy are all really good I know that in the end they say the no one got hurt but still you never know unless your really there. Like in free Willy 2 the whales got oil all over them and all most died I know they really did not die but still.
