Storyline

It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. Written by Warner Bros.

A cute movie, But Form Your Own Opinions.
11 September 2014 | by OrcalinkinparkSee all my reviews

Unlike the review below, I actually seen the movie, the movies is full of some amazing, but long underwater scenes, and some suspenseful moments. The movie does promote they true meaning of rescue rehabilitate and release, especially when morals con into play, when it comes to Winter's fate and a Dolphin Named Mandy. Many times throughout the movies it is said that these animals are "Wild animals" as well as when Asked if it was possible would Clay release winter. his response is one he puts into perspective from when he started the hospital. Just like in dolphins tale, before the credits role and after the ending, they show the actual stories of Mandy's release and Hope's rescue.

It does not promote captivity, but it does bring a reality of what happens when a companion animal is needed for an unreleasable one, either they're paired up or moved to a park which can provide one. Unlike the previous reviewer, I believe ALL SHOULD FORM THEIR OWN OPINIONS. You should go to the movie if you like and bring your kids I'm sure they would love to see the movie as well. MAKE YOUR OWN OPINIONS Don't GIVE INTO THOSE WHO ARE SADLY MISINFORMED.
