Reviews

Based on the inspiring true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.

Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend. With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales.

As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another and leads to a momentary thaw in the Cold War.

This DVD tells the true story about mankind assisting a small pod of whales to escape from the clutches encroaching ice of impending winter in Alaska. It is gentle, educational and enjoyable, and there is a surprising intervention of help from the Russian Navy. This is indeed a DVD that is suitable for viewing by all ages.

I remember the 'true story' back int he 1980s whn a family of wales were trapped by ice. The film stays very true to the real story but with a little bit of artistic freedom to make the story work for film. Very entertaining, uplifting and something you can watch witht he whole family.

This film is just so lovely, it's gorgeous locations and heartwarming story can't fail to put a smile on your face.
Children under about 5 or 6 probably won't understand this film enough to enjoy it but my 7 and 9 year old boys loved it and we can't wait to see it again on Blu-ray.

I expect more this movie, but it's a good movie to watch with the family, specially with the childrens, in a cloudy day eating a popcorn.
Just more a thing... the subtitles these movies (region free) that have "portuguese", it is the Portugal and not Brazil. There is some diferences between it, but it's possible to watch... This is a little tip for others consumers, like me, that wishes buy in the amazon.uk.

1988 Barrow Point, Alaska.

This film is based on a true story and includes news feeds from that era. Three migrating whales are trapped in the ice due to early freezing. It was a fluke they were reported on in the first place. Once attention grew, unlikely forces and alliances came together to save the whales. This included an oil company, Greenpeace, US and Soviet governments, the military, Eskimos, the community, private entrepreneurs, and a Barbie reporter. That was the Big Miracle.

The film contains the right mix of drama and comedy in this heart warming tale on what people can accomplish when they come together.

The end of the film shows a clip of Sarah Palin, then Heath, as a sportscaster.

Family safe.

I liked a lot this 2012 family drama and I am really surprised that it bombed at box office. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Let's begin with the TRUE STORY. On October 7, 1988, Roy Ahmaogak, a hunter belonging to Inupiat nation, discovered three gray whales trapped in pack ice in the Beaufort Sea near Point Barrow, Alaska. During following three weeks an unprecedented effort was made to create an escape route through the ice field for the trapped whales. This effort united Inupiat community, biologists, Alaskan state authorities, federal government, Alaskan Air National Guard, at least one oil company, medias, civilian volunteers and last but not least two Soviet(!) icebreakers, "Vladimir Arseniev" and "Admiral Makarov". On 28 October, Soviet icebreakers managed finally to create a large enough path for the whales to escape. From that moment nobody saw the whales again and it was supposed that the operation was a success - even if there is no definite proof that animals actually survived.

The film mostly follows the true story, but unavoidably some things were changed. Some more drama but also humour was added - but I cannot really be more specific to avoid spoilers. MAJOR SPOILER WARNING! The element of real tragedy from the real life was kept in the film, but, unlike in the true story, here there is no doubt left about the ultimate issue - there is a happy end. After all, it is a family movie... Also, the names given to the three whales were changed - here they are known as Fred, Wilma and Bam-Bam, when in real life they were code-named Bonnet, Crossbeak, and Bone.

The main character is a fictitious local news reporter named Adam Carlson (John Krasinski).
