    When I was a kid Free Willy was one of two VHS tapes I owned. The other was Batman. Watching Free Willy tonight I realized even though I owned the movie I must not have watched it much as I remembered nothing about it.

    The movie takes place in an unnamed Washington town (at least I never caught the name) that was clearly the same town the Goonies was filmed. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this…

    apart from the orca the plot was predictable and the actors were not OK! i didn't like it so much!

    The film is worth seeing once but every time I think of it, I think of poor Keiko, the Orca in the film: note his floppy dorsal fin. At least the film drew attention to the situation of marine creatures kept in these sort of conditions. To the film studio's credit, they thereafter attempted to improve Keiko's situation.

    Probably a better argument for what BLACKFISH was talking about than what BLACKFISH was talking about. I'll never know. I'll never see it. You have to be an ET clone for me to take anything seriously. The biggest thing though is it paved the way for me finally seeing the sequel, which was teased for me endless times before BATMAN FOREVER vhs screenings.

    Yeah, it's not really 4stars but its one of my earliest cinema memories and I remember waiting for ages for the VHS to come out so...

    It still holds up for what it is.

    Nice message to.

    ps - I always liked the idea that Madsen went from Reservoir Dogs to this. Got his character here pegged as a third Vega brother in witness protection. Or something.

    Part of my The great rewatching of 2014 list.

    Ah, yes, the infamous Free Willy. The first film I ever saw in a movie theater. Hadn't seen it since that first time, until now.

    This one was probably a mistake to re-watch. I remember enjoying it in the theater. I was very young, the theater was on a boat, the movie was in English and it had both Swedish and Norwegian subtitles. I understood none of these languages, but man…

    I haven't seen this movie since the mid-'90s, so I'm letting my inner nine year old rate this one.

    Before Free Willy no one cared about whales or little white kids and their anguish. Afterward it was like whales and little white kids have problems too. :o We wanted to kill Jaws why does Willy get a pass? Okay well Willy was a little cuter and not killing humans for having sex in beach water.

    Seriously I love this film, really its the perfect family film. I mean its like someone giving you a Mcdonalds gift coupon book and…
