Comforting classic.
Verified purchase
This film gets me everytime and my post-millennial daughter loves it too. I was a baby when this film came out. It uses some synth music which really goes with the ocean theme and I sort of miss this type of soundtrack music. Deep down inside it's all of our dreams to free the orcas long as all of us have a heart. It's in Seattle so everything is very beautiful. I prefer this movie over all the other Free Willies because it's more of a journey and less of a teen drama sequel. It raises a lot of good questions about Foster families and how children relate to the parents. I think showing the mother and child relationship between the orcas is important to show because it makes us realize how we affect them.

Free Willy and Reminisce Yourself
Verified purchase
My four-year-old granddaughter liked the movie. I liked it too, but it was made a long time ago. Killer whales had a much more benevolent personality then when a trainer or two hadn't been killed by them. Sea World was still in full swing then. If you were a parent or a child in the seventies, this movie will be for you.

Uncertain this was not not a sale of a preowned bluray represented as new.

This was not a new item. Wrapper was a not manufacturer original. Cover looked suspiciously reproduced. No leaflets. Disk had small scratch. Disappointed. Will try to find elsewhere.

AWESOME movie!
Verified purchase
My sister and I, ages 9 and 7, both agree that this tale of a killer whale is one of the best movies we've ever watched. The scene at the end, the whole jumping-over-the-wall part, that was amazing! The expression on the evil man's face, it was priceless! It was fun to watch the bond that grew between Jesse and Willy, and I can't think of ANY slightly bad part in this five-star movie. As a 9 year-old, I recommend this movie to kids aging 7 and up. This is also recommended greatly for adults.

This is a nice, family movie
Verified purchase
This is a nice, family movie. It has everything; adventure, comedy, drama, action, you name it. I love the song, at the end, by Michael Jackson. It could be one of those preachy movies, but it isn't. It did bring to light an important issue during that time, and it made people aware of an important species. The acting is great. Even the children give great performances.

Free Willy is for everyone

Something you can watch with your family or let them use it by themselves and it is a comfort video. So happy we bought it

Loved this movie as kid. Loved this movie as an adult. The version we rented still included the 1-800 number at the end of the movie to call and learn more about Orca whales. We called...and got forwarded to their website. But now I have adult money to donate, so that was exciting. My husband's crush on Lori Petty was also reignited.

blu ray looks great

**not commenting on the plot/actual movie, I read reviews to make sure it's not a british region copy that won't play on my blu ray or something like that. To each their own with what the movie is about.
