Just a great family- classic from the 90s. I was extremely fascinated by the film as a kid and loved orca whales since then. For sure the real story behind the orca Keiko who played Willy in the film didn‘t end like the movie unfortunately and it is really sad that there are still approximately 60 orcas living in captivity across the world. So the important message is really to never support any amusement parks (like SeaWorld) that have Orcas in captivity.

Despite growing up on kid-friendly '90's flicks ranging from _Beauty and the Beast_ to _Beethoven_, this was my first time seeing any of the _Free Willy_ movies. What did I think? It was cute and touching, particularly the ending. Willy was a likable "killer whale," and it makes a great point about the danger of keeping feral animals in captivity. In short, if you like cutesy animal flicks, this is worth checking out. Content Concerns: Sex: Brief, slight kissing. 4/5 Nudity: A boy is seen shirtless briefly; a woman in a bare-midriff outfit; a postcard with women in bikinis seen from the back is shown twice. 3/5 Language: Other than one or two misuses of God's name, language is no worse than "shut up," "crap," or "screw". 4/5 Violence: Kids are chased by police; a kid throws a baseball through a window in anger; bad guys try to kill an innocent animal. 3/5 Drugs: None. 5/5 Frightening/Intense Scenes: This movie is rife with emotional intensity; Willy cries a lot, and is a very emotional animal. There is also strife between the human characters as well. 2/5 Other: A Native American prayer is said; talk of evolution. 4/5 Score: 4/5

The Five Faces of **_FREE WILLY_**





The film score is tinged with 80s era synths, which feels both nostalgic and somewhat cringeworthy. But it's cheerful and lovely most of the time. The only memorable part is **Michael Jackson's** end credits song _Wil More

**Despite being predictable and loaded with clichés, it is a film that marked a generation, alerted many consciences to very serious issues, and is still very beautiful thirty years later.**

This is certainly one of the films that made an impression on people during the 90's, and that maintained More

I guess Free Willy depends on how old you were in 1993.

For the most part, I really like Family Friendly, if they are done right they can be entertaining and uplifting. And, the kid in me can still see how people would love it, and still love it, if they saw it as a little kid.

But I was 13 wh More
