Having recently watched and enjoyed "Dolphin Tale" with my 7 year old daughter, we had high hopes that this film would be similarly entertaining. It wasn't. We found it slow and dull, with too much emphasis on the dramas faced by the adult humans, and not enough on the main stars of the film, Mee-Shee & the children. This would not have been so bad if the story had been easier to follow and the acting less wooden. Also, it was difficult at times to understand what the characters were saying, as they appeared to be mumbling. The special effects, however were ear-splittingly loud.
This film could and should have been much better. We were left disappointed.
