At the Edge of the World chronicles the controversial Sea Shepherd Antarctic Campaign against a Japanese whaling fleet. The international volunteer crew, under-trained and under-equipped, develop a combination of bizarre and brilliant tactics with which to stop the whalers. But first they must find the Japanese ships, a far more difficult challenge than ever imagined - long-time activist Paul Watson and first-time captain Alex Cornelissen employ an array of strategies in the hopes of finding an elusive adversary in the vast expanse of the Ross Sea. With one ship (the Farley Mowat) too slow to chase down the whaling fleet, with their second ship (the Robert Hunter) unsuited for Antarctic ice conditions and with no country supporting their efforts to enforce international law, the situation becomes increasingly desperate. Against all odds, however, a real-life pirate tale unfolds - a modern-day "David vs. Goliath" adventure. Written by Dan Stone

Those who defend life over greed are ALWAYS right
2 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is the chronicle of Operation Leviathan (2006-07), the third campaign of Sea Shepherd against the illegal Japanese commercial slaughter of whales in The Antarctic Whale Sanctuary.

Operation Leviathan was one of the more "true" campaigns, before all the hype from Whale Wars and so on hit the mass media. I say true in the sense of having less resources available and the will to do what's right guided only by your heart rather than publicity and public opinion.

In a personal note, I find very strange how some people call this terrorism. Odd terrorists these are, who seek the defense of life and don't hurt any living creature. If you want to see terrorism, go to any abattoir or farm (see Conklin Dairy Farms videos). Simply put, the USA government created a state of paranoia since 9/11 in order to control citizens, get rid of civil rights and take out of the scene any dissident who put life over other state interests (money). I can only assume that those who shout terrorism are either brainwashed or part of the government.

Apart from that, to call those who fight to preserve life terrorists is not only an insult to any intelligent creature and all the billions of animals who are absurdly put through unspeakable suffering and murdered with no regret, but to every single person who was hurt or died because of real terrorist attacks.

This film is for people who aren't afraid to see the truth. It will be inspirational and spirit lifting to know that there are still heroes alive fighting for a greater good without looking for anything in return.
