Product Description

Fourteen year old Alyssa (Schroeder) has been living with her Grandmother Lucy (Ross) since the death of her mother a year ago. It s been a tough year for both of them and Lucy decides it s time for Alyssa to go to the Bahamas to live with Hawk (Dunbar), dedicated dolphin researcher and the father she never knew she had. Alyssa s arrival on the island comes at a decisively inconvenient time for Hawk, who is busy fighting greedy politicians and experts who are determined to turn his research center into a tacky tourist attraction. It s a prickly relationship between Hawk and Alyssa, but Tamika (Adams), Hawks girlfriend, and Daniel (Harris), Tamika s father, smooth the way. Alyssa soon adjusts to island life and discovers the gift she shares with her father for communicating with dolphins, a skill which leads her into a powerful relationship with a wild dolphin which her father, for legitimate scientific reasons, cannot condone. But when the powers-that-be threaten to close down her father s research station, it is Alyssa and her wild friend who hold the key, and have the power to bring all parties together.

While I didn't write this review, I thought it was important to share because it really speaks out about what's important about the movie.

______________________

In Eye of the Dolphin, Alyssa is a troubled teen. She's recently lost her mother and is in trouble in school (and wearing way too much make-up so we know she's troubled). When her grandmother can do no more for her, she takes Alyssa to the Bahamas to meet the father she never knew she had (and vice versa). Her father, Dr. James Hawk, is researching dolphin communication in hope of being able to understand them. Alyssa and her father must find a way to rescue her life from the edge of catastrophe. Can they each rescue each other from their troubles?

OK, that sounds a lot like some kind of after school special. And in many ways, it is. That isn't saying anything bad about it, but it does have a target audience of teens and parents. Such a film may not develop characters and relationships as fully as other films might, but the film is designed to focus on an issue.

The real issue that is dealt with in the film is communication. Communication and its difficulties are central to the storyline. The research into communication with dolphins serves to sets the stage for the challenges that the characters face in their struggles to hear and be heard.

There are many things that get in the way of real communication. One is distraction by other voices. In the film, this is shown through the ear buds that people use while listening to iPods or earphones that Hawk often wears as he listens to the dolphins. These shut out other voices. I think the film thinks it's a good thing that in her first encounter with the dolphins, they steal Alyssa's iPod and ruin it.

First let me say that I and everyone in my family thoroughly enjoyed this film. The combination of Animals (in this case Dolphins) interacting with humans, has always been appealing to audiences in Hollywood feature films, Eye of the Dolphin is no different. Aside from that and the remarkable production value with plenty of under water scenes, this is a true family movie and is a tribute to the independent film makers of the world. If you review this film like a 100 million or even 20 million dollar film, on some level that is probably flattering to the producers, as they made this film for considerably less. That being said, this film is all about communication and not just (although it is addressed) limited to communicating with dolphins, and that is something that just cannot be stressed enough in any and all families. This is a values based film and one that all parents with tweens and teens should love. Carly Schroeder has both charisma and a genuiness about her that comes across beautifully. This family drama about a parent and a child discovering each other is a must see.

Great film!

It reminds me of those old Disney classics like Robinson Crusoe or Swiss Family Robinson! It takes you on an adventure that you never want to return from! I would definitely recommend this to families especially those with pre-teen or teenage girls.

And I love Carly Schroeder! Why can't she be in more movies? She's much better than the vapid, vacuous wannabes who call themselves actresses. (*COUGH* Lindsay *COUGH* Lohan!)

Frankly, I thought this movie might be a bit slow and boring, but I and my family really enjoyed it. A lot more realistic about dolphins than, say, "Flipper". I highly recommend "Eye of the Dolphin" for any age movie watcher!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David H. Norton on January 24, 2008

For awhile, I thought this was going to be mostly a remake of the wonderful 1970s Mike Nichols-directed "Day of the Dolpin" with George C. Scott. Both are about dolphin research in the Bahamas. Both are about groups of money-grubbing people who want to stop the research. The major difference (beside the terrorist-political aspect of "Day") is that this one has the lost-father, lost-daughter aspect, which sometimes almost gets in the way of the main point--people and dolphins have to communicate. My recommendation is: see both movies. In their individual ways, both are excellent.

I was glad to see a lot of positive reviews on this website. This film truly deserves some good ratings. It's a fun, well done family film. I'll admit some of the acting isn't world class but Carly Schroeder is a fresh new talent and enjoyable to watch.

As for any comments that this film is not "family friendly," the drug use is brief and condemned and condemned. As for the condom: God forbid a film promotes safe sex to teens. Anyone who doesn't think 14 year olds know about sex is just fooling themselves.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on January 21, 2008
Format: DVD
I really, really liked this movie. I loved that it was filmed in the Bahamas and had dolphins in it and the way Hawk and Alyssa grew closer and closer to having a father/daughter relationship. The only thing I didn't like is that Alyssa was always surrounded by people older than her. There wasn't a single kid with a big part in the movie besides Alyssa. Maybe if she had met a few girls (or boys... hehe), I'd have rated this 5 stars instead of 4.

Good movie overall, though.
