Sad tale of a killer whale

2016-10-09 08:59

Johannesburg - Rated one of the best documentaries by movie and TV website Rotten Tomatoes, Blackfish is a riveting and disturbing look at the complex tale of Tilikum, an orca who killed his trainer at US theme park SeaWorld.

Since its release, the public has called for a boycott of SeaWorld and an end to killer whale captivity, which is shown to be an astoundingly cruel, dangerous practice.

“Really great documentaries are like zeitgeist napalm; and Blackfish carries the torch,” said 2UE That Movie Show about Blackfish.

Cinema Crazed said: “It should be mandatory [viewing] for wildlife lovers and advocates, so we can prevent another corrupt organisation like SeaWorld from rising to prominence again.”
