Storyline

A nameless baby male elephant was just getting used to life in the herd, when poachers kill his mother, so he runs and gets lost. He's found by a grouchy female, Groove, the sister of a matriarch, who walks off disgusted with life in her herd. Not exactly wholehearted, she still takes the orphan under her wing, 'till we find your herd', but fails to find his herd, or a new home with males -who find him disrespectful and mouthy- or her own herd, which nicknames the kid whispers since his trumpeting is so weak. meanwhile the fear for poachers and (that is, in the movie) lions drives them north over the great river, a long and dangerous journey...

Cute Elephants But That's It
24 May 2008 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Being an animal lover, I decided to watch this film but it offers nothing new. The plot has been done countless times before. The storyline is thin. The voices do not match the characters. It's actually as if the voices were added to a documentary. The film really drags and fails to engage which eventually leads the viewer to lose complete interest. Voice actors Bassett, Derryberry and White do a competent job but the rest sound uninterested. Richardson's voice-over was quite annoying. 'Whispers: An Elephant's Tale' is filmed like a documentary (with unimpressive camera-work) and one is better off watching a documentary instead because at least they'll learn something and perhaps even enjoy the realness more.
