Quite moving in places, feel good film that lacked a little something.By mooviechic (150 reviews) from Durham , 27 Oct 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Based on a true story this is about 3 trapped whales and how everyone from Greenpeace to the government tried to help save them. Quite moving in places and a good feel good film but lacked a little something, it felt a little low budget and at times it was very obvious that it was a studio set but overall it was OK.

Families of UK - play cards instead!By trickydicky2002 (23 reviews) from Reading , 28 Apr 2013I guess if you rent a film with Ted Danson playing a ruthless oil tycoon and Drew Barrymore as an environmentalist it falls into the general category of 'what were you thinking of'?
It's a bit like the makers of BBC's classic drama 'I Claudius' casting Wendy Craig as Livia and John Inman as Caligula.
Truly dreadful cheese - and one to most definitely avoid if you are over 7 years old.
Big Miracle - family dramaBy MelissaMarabamma (218 reviews) from South Coast UK , 26 Apr 2013Gripping if you care about animals and want balanced people looking after them. It has a good plot and emotional storyline. The cast did a great job in a cold location.
Miracles do Happen!By a customer , 09 Apr 2013Three whales (parents and a baby) are trapped in Alaska in a small air hole as the sea is freezing over more quickly than normal for the time of year. Their escape route to the open sea has been cut off by a large ice mass. What starts out as a small local news item becomes national news eventually involving the White House! This is the true story of who became involved, the organisations and the effort by everyone, including the Russians, to get the whales to safety before they drown.
nice filmBy a customer , 06 Feb 2013Loosely based on the true story but a nice film. Good family viewing, sad in places so maybe not for the very sensitive
worth watchingBy a customer , 20 Jan 2013A slow start but it turned out to be worth watching, because of the number of characters [i. e. not concentrating on one person and much more like real life] and the different 'angles' of the people involved. Also, as others have said, it is heart warming.
