Based on a true account of international attempts to free a family of whales trapped in Alaskan ice in 1988, Big Miracle might look like a hopelessly bland, Animal Planet-ready family film in the Dolphin Tale mode, but under its crowd-pleasing...

Inspiring, real and heartwarming, Big Miracle is something of a miracle itself—a family film everyone in the family can love that doesn't talk down to its audience and makes more salient political points than Free Willy or Dolphin Tale.

The success of last year's "Dolphin Tale" proved this theorem: Imperiled marine animals plus true-ish story plus workmanlike sincerity plus happy ending equals a hit. Will the equation hold for director Ken Kwapis' whale movie "Big Miracle"?

If you're old enough, you probably remember the saga of three whales – nicknamed Fred, Wilma, and Bam Bam – who were trapped in Alaskan waters in 1988. The international efforts to free them dominated the news for a few weeks, not merely because it...

Big Miracle plays best as a passable family flick, enabled by an Eskimo lad (Ahmaogak Sweeney) shadowing Adam everywhere. That the story otherwise downplays the role of the Inuits, in favor of the interlopers played by familiar faces, is just business...

‘big Miracle” shouldn’t really work, but it does. It’s an exciting, charming and often quite funny family film inspired by the real-life 1988 rescue of three gray whales trapped in ice near Alaska’s northernmost point.

One Guy's Opinion
“Big Miracle” is obviously a very calculated feel-good movie that will certainly join “Free Willy” among whale-philiacs. But the curious thing about it is that when you look at the motivations of most of the characters, they’re hardly as white...

Well, check your heart at the door but feel free to bring in your selfish urges. Big Miracle uses the back-drop of a heartwarming true tale and blasts you with greedy human nature for the majority of the 107 minutes.

At the end of Big Miracle, we see the spirited spokeswoman from Greenpeace stand up at a meeting announcing the oil-drilling rights to a spot of land in Alaska and demand that the organization's own bid be read for the public record.

“Big Miracle” was ultimately entertaining for both kids and adults, so I recommend checking it out.

Big Miracle would be a very satisfying way to spend a Sunday afternoon. If you have kids or are a fan of sentimental animal movies, you’ll love this film. If you hate sentimental animal movies, you’ll probably still like it.

Big Miracle tells the story of this amazing real-life rescue effort. Well, sort of. The film is based on journalist Thomas Rose's 1989 book, Freeing the Whales, a firsthand account of the events that captured the world's hearts.

"Big Miracle," perhaps inadvertently, also delivers a message custom-made for our times: That somewhere between avarice and ideology there's a path people can walk together to save the planet.

Although it's a lightweight heart-tugger, "Big Miracle" distributes the reins to a full circle of interested parties who aren't simply heroes or villains. Even the Inuit locals, who range from traditionalists to profiteers, are depicted respectfully.

To help kids relate, Ahmaogak Sweeney plays a young Inuit native boy who befriends Adam and aids in the rescue. If you're fishing for a wholesome history lesson, "Big Miracle" provides a whale of a tale.

"Big Miracle" is one of those formulaic, bare-minimum efforts that confuses meaning well for being worthwhile. As directed by Ken Kwapis (2009's "He's Just Not That Into You") and written by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler (2006's "The Shaggy Dog")...

Adults will also be able to usefully use the subtext of Big Miracle to explain the Cold War and the then melting rivalry between the US, under Ronald Reagan, and Gorbachev’s Russia.
