A Tale Of Aquatic Proportions defined and designed for the big screen to evoke all forms of emotions
Our film grounds off by introducing our main humane lead in which before we are introduced to our beautiful aquatic lead. Dolphin Tale sets up its sub-plot first by establishing us to our human leads relationship with his brother. Before our main plot soothes in like a wave helplessly frozen in the winter introducing our lovable, aquatic beauty, Wynter, who is entrapped in a trap and injured but is saved by our main lead, Sawyer. In which during this scene a connection is created a sense of trust and love between Wynter and Sawyer. After the connection she is taken to Clear Water Marine Hospital, which is run by Dr Clay Haskett, his father and daughter as well as his family help run the marine hospital, who are on their last limbs of their wonderful hospital. As Wynter's prognosis looks weak, they stick it through with her even at the hardest of all time when she loses her tail. But then our story smoothens together like a wave hitting the shore. In which the main plot and sub-plot submerge in with one another. In which begins the introduction of Morgan Freeman's character, Dr Ken McCarthy. In which Sawyer comes up with an idea for his new friend whose life is in danger. But the question remains... Can they save the life of Wynter before the funds expire and the hospital is to be shut down? In this tear-jerker of a heart-warming drama about a tale of testing the limits, taking all the risks and an unforgettable tale of friendship.
Our cast comes in the form of some of the unknown and some heavy-hitters from the likes of Kris Kristofferesen and God aka Morgan Freeman. While Kris is somewhat of a cameo to fill the background and Morgan Freeman is the headline name to sell the movie. In which both headline casts add a lovely atmosphere to the film with their warm loving characters. Our film is kept alive by our main lead played by Nathan Gamble who does a splendid job of a performance. But the star of the film and the show lies in the real-life victim of the film and the beautiful creature that is Wynter, who relives the traumatic experience for the big screen.
Dolphin Tale is a smoothly directed and the pace is divine and never reaches a dull moment. It feels all completely true and realistic to its source material. The film has its moments in which every moment this screen rages its waves on your theatre screens, its always focusing on developing the characters or plot of the film and the director even goes the extra miles. They go that extra beautiful mile by not only casting Wynter herself in the lead but treating you to the touching and tear-jerking real-life footage of the story accompanying the end credits
While Dolphin Tale has a pretty simple impressive plot and character development it's not visually amazing but it has some impressive sequences that are designed and defined to provoke tears weather they are accompanied by sadness or joy. The director creates a visual treat that is like getting your favorite biscuit out of the biscuit tin. It's a delight to endure with a smile on you face.
Overall Dolphin Tale is a grand aquatic achievement of an amazing true story defined to be told for the big screen. An achievement in film-making adapting a true story to the big screen and maintaining the integrity of its plot and character development of a heart warming tale of friendship designed to shed tears of all forms of emotions. It some what feels like Dolphin Tale entails the magic of Disney's old animated classics... A grand achievement of aquatic proportions.
