Willy the whale is back, this time threatened by illegal whalers making money off sushi. Jesse, now 16, has taken a job on an orca-researching ship, along with old friend Randolph and a sarcastic scientist, Drew. On the whaler's ship is captain John Wesley and his son, Max, who isn't really pleased about his father's job, but doesn't have the gut to say so. Along the way, Willy reunites with Jesse, who helps Max realize that whales are a little more than just cheese burgers. Written by
Part of the birth scene at the end of the movie included real footage from the birth of K'yosha, an orca born at Vancouver Aquarium to parents Bjossa and Finna, both of whom are also seen in the birth footage. (Finna also had a bent dorsal fin, allowing him to be used as "Willy".) See more »

Granted, I understand how others were expecting adventure kind of things in this movie but it was not bad at all. This movie was more, how I like to say nonfiction than fiction meaning that it tells of what really happens without exaggerating the facts like most movies do. Most people who gave it a low rating were expecting exaggerated things, amazing adventure like no other and hence they were disappointed. This move, though short (that's what I thought), was simple and sensitive. The ending was rather lame they could have spiced it up like sending the guy to jail or something like that but right afterward you see the female whale give birth-hence with the facts without being too much like a lot of movies are nowadays. So this movie deserves a solid "A" and even Sisko and Ebert gave it two thumps up and they are movie experts, so there you go.
