Not as good as the original...
31 January 2021 | by Thanos_AlfieSee all my reviews

"Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove" is an Adventure - Drama movie in which we watch a young girl finding a baby Orca in a lagoon close to her grandfather's amusement park. She tries to help and rescue the baby Orca.

Since I had already watched the original franchise of "Free Willy" I knew what to expect from this movie. "Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove" is the new version of the movie "Free Willy" of 1993. The interpretation of Bindi Irwin who played as Kirra, it was good but not enough to save this movie. I am not saying that "Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove" is a bad movie, I am just saying that it's another below average family movie and nothing more. Finally, I have also to say that if you want to watch a nice family movie with the same context then you should definitely watch the first movie of "Free Willy" of 1993.
