Product Description

Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove (DVD)

Amazon.com

More a retelling of the original 1993 Free Willy film than a third sequel in the series, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove is the story of a young whale who's separated from his pod, used in a moneymaking scheme, and befriended by a young girl who ultimately makes a huge difference in the young whale's life. The film stars Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin and host of the TV nature documentary series Bindi the Jungle Girl) in her first film, and she is surprisingly believable and passionate in her role as Kirra, if not entirely polished. Beau Bridges plays Kirra's grandfather, Gus, a down-on-his-luck gambler and owner of a dilapidated amusement park who's obsessed with making money. When Kirra's father is injured, Gus is unexpectedly saddled with caring for his granddaughter over the summer. Bongo Mbutuma, Siyabulela Ramba, and Stephen Jennings round out the cast. When a young orca becomes trapped in the lagoon at Gus's ocean-side amusement park in South Africa, Kirra and her grandfather clash over the whale's future. Kirra quickly dubs the whale Willy and pleads with her grandfather to set him free, but Gus wants to use Willy to boost profits. When a mammal rescue group determines that Willy's underdeveloped echolocation makes him unfit to survive alone in the wild, Kirra bristles at their suggestion to put Willy down, and she vows to rehabilitate the orca. Meanwhile, Kirra's grandfather contemplates selling Willy to a neighboring park owner at a handsome profit, in hopes that he will have the necessary funds to properly house and care for Willy. More than just a story about right versus wrong, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove is an exploration of a much more complicated ethical dilemma in which the best course of action is unclear. As the characters each struggle to choose the right path, what becomes crystal clear is the power of perseverance and the personal growth that results from love, adversity, and challenge. While the CGI graphic scenes of the orca pods swimming are admittedly poor and some other aspects of this film could have been improved, Escape from Pirate's Cove is still a good family film with a heartfelt message. Bonus features include a fairly interesting featurette about filming on location in South Africa, Bindi's first movie diary, a quick look at the film's animal costars, two deleted scenes, and one outtake. The Blu-ray also features a pop-up trivia option that runs the length of the film. --Tami Horiuchi

This movie was a real surprise, our family has watched all theh Free Willy movies from the past and decided to give this one a try. Bindi Irwin is a very talented young lady and very believeable thorughout the movie. Beau Bridges is such a wonderful character actor and he plays the gruff grandfather very well. We througly enjoyed the movie and the friendship between two young children in the movie. Steve Irwin would be so proud of his little girl.

The 4th movie of the Free Willy series is truly a delight. I loved every minute of it! Bindi Irwin was truly amazing as Kirra. It is so amazing how much she looks like her father, and carry's on his legacy through her knowledge of animals, and her love for them...which makes this even better, because you can tell her passion for animals is really genuine. I also thought the scenery was so beautiful, the acting by all the cast was excellent, and this movie ranks up there as being just as wonderful as the other Free Willy movies. I thought the ending was very powerful and emotional, that it made me cry. Hearing the song by Bindi Irwin while the credits were rolling were amazing, and I recoginized her voice immediately. Bindi Irwin seems so down-to-earth, like I said before a genuinly passionate person, and I hope she remains following in her father's footsteps.

I am defintely going to buy it, and on blu-ray, so I get the highest quality, and so I can see the bonus features, because the one I rented didn't have any on there.

This is the 4th in the Free Willy series, but it's not about the original Willy. It is filmed in South Africa and Jason James Richter or none of the other cast from the first 3 movies are in it, but it's based on the same story line, a Orca is caught, can't get out, an evil man wants him and in the end he reunites with his family. I won't give details but it's a great family to watch. If you are a Free Willy fan it is a must see and buy.

I love the first two "Free Willy" movies (haven't seen the third)and I so wanted to love this movie. I have a nearly 5-year-old daughter and want her to love whales like I do, and thought that a "Willy" movie with a little girl (and who doesn't love Bindi Irwin?!) would be perfect.
Unfortunately, this movie drowns in a badly-written script, and too many slow and unnecessary scenes.
Spoiler Alert -- if you haven't yet seen the movie, I'm about to give much of it away.
The premise is predictable -- Kirra's dad is hurt and he ships her to Africa to spend some time with her grandfather while he heals. There she finds her grandfather seems a bit of a slacker. He sends someone else to the airport to pick her up because he's gambling. He owns a rundown amusement park that's getting its butt kicked by the movie's bad guy, who owns a super cool amusement park on the other side of town.
After a storm, a baby orca is stuck in the lagoon outside the amusement park. Kirra befriends it and names it Willy. I enjoyed seeing Bindi's Kirra interact with the whale -- even if it obviously was a fake whale. I think Bindi is a good actress. I hope that next time we see her, it's in a better movie than this.
The bad guy amusement park guy wants to buy the orca.
As mentioned earlier, the pacing was slow. My easily entertained daughter often was bored. At one point she said, "I hope something good happens soon." I pushed the "skip to next scene" button several times (was either that or stop watching). The new scene would begin and we'd find we hadn't missed anything important.
One big problem was that the "Kirra helping her grandfather realize and reach his potential" storyline was not fully developed.
And the CG was awful!

So rare to find a family movie where there isnt death or violence involved. I love this movie and so does my nine year old. Very wonderful message in the movie. Bought my daughter the orignal Free Willy and she was bored to tears. But not this movie..a big thumbs up!

Another "Free Willy" movie? Oh, brother. That was my initial reaction. When I discovered, however, that Bindi Irwin would be starring in it, I became intrigued. I grew up in Eugene, Oregon, attended the same school as Terri Irwin, and my heart has been linked to their family since Steve Irwin's early success as "The Crocodile Hunter" and the later tragedy of his death. How could I not give this movie a chance?

The story is quick-moving and fun-spirited. Bindi is a young girl from Australia whose father gets hurt in an accident. She is forced to go spend six weeks in Capetown, South Africa, with her estranged grandfather, the father of her deceased mother. Beau Bridges plays his role well, giving it a few moments of goofiness and some heartfelt scenes. He and his granddaughter do not hit it off right away. In fact, he is a gambling, unmotivated fellow who runs a downtrodden theme park. A storm brings the theme park an unexpected surprise, though, in the form of a young Orca. "Willy" becomes the catalyst for a granddaughter/grandfather relationship, as well as the source of rivalry and conflict from a bigger, better theme park.

The movie has some funny moments and some incredible scenery from the Capetown area. Beau and Bindi give the film a lot of heart. There are one or two slapstick moments, but overall it remains focused on its young female star and her desire to care for animals even while winning over her crusty, but good-natured grandpa. The only real weakness is the use of simulated underwater Orca scenes. They might work well in an aquarium presentation, but they don't do well in a film. And they seemed unnecessary, considering the very real Orca used throughout the movie.

I was pleasantly surprised by "Free Will: Escape from Pirate's Cove.
