The story of Tilikum, a captive killer whale that has taken the lives of several people, underscores problems within the sea-park industry, man's relationship to nature, and how little has been learned about these highly intelligent mammals.

    An amazing example of documentary filmmaking. It will completely change your view of marine parks like SeaWorld. Just be aware that it at times feels closer to "Jurassic Park" than "Free Willy." Not for young kids.

    One of the most moving and impactful documentaries I've ever seen.

    I watched this on Netflix after a buddy of mine recommended it and it was pretty entertaining and very informative. Blackfish dives (no pun intended) into a bunch of issues dealing with the capturing and training of Killer Whales for places like Sea World. It was honestly never an issue I never really thought about since I saw Free Willy like 20 years ago.
    The movie does show some of the attacks of the whales on the trainers but nothing ever really gets too graphic. There are some pretty intense scenes though that are probably not suitable for children. This movie is definitely worth a watch.

    Definitely a must see documentary. You'll still have to form your own opinion on things but this documentary is very compelling and will make you think twice about visiting Sea World or amusement parks with captive performance animals.

    It's streaming on Netflix. Catch it while it's there. And just know, I'd NEVER enter small pool with a killer whale. Ever.
