But Sandy is not willing to go along with it. He runs away from home and finds a deserted island where he and Flipper can live. It's got fresh water, plenty of food, and a cave where the two can hide if anyone comes near.
Unfortunately, it's not as deserted as Sandy first thought. Some escaped convicts have landed on the island, but they escape marooning a woman and her two daughters instead. Can Sandy help them without giving away his presence? What about the father of the family who is being held prisoner by the convicts? And will Sandy's father Porter (Brian Kelly) ever find his son?
I'll admit that I was disappointed in the original Flipper movie. I felt it dragged. This one is slow in spots, but it is much more entertaining. The story moves forward at a mostly steady pace with just the occasional slow scene. There's more action and adventure in the climax this time around, too, which helps. Granted, there are some major plot gaps (Sandy helps the trio that much and they never suspect?), but I found them easy to overlook.
I noted with the first movie how different it was from the TV series. This movie acts as a bridge. It mentions that Sandy's mother has died but just in passing. It also sets up Porter Ricks' new job as a park ranger by having him at a training facility at the beginning of the film.
I'm glad I gave this second movie a try because it proved to be a much better film then the original. It will easily entertain kids and the young at hearts.
condition and has entertained him for hours.
The second movie moves quicker than the first and features not just the lovely tropical Florida Keys and the Bahamas as the backdrop but it details the deepening trust between boy and dolphin. Luke Halpin puts in an excellent performance as the central star in the movie spending virtually the entire movie in not much more than what became his signature cutoff jean shorts. What is also evident, given that Halpin did all his own underwater work, is what an accomplished athlete he was. He handled the skin and scuba diving scenes like an old pro and in our modern world of steroids and gym obsessed teen boys, it is good to remember the days when children were naturally fit from just the excesses of running (or swimming) around.Read more ›

Was fun to watch. The movie had a few holes in it as if someone was not paying attention to the story board and some of the script had factual errors. But over all---OK movie.Published 12 months ago by John Morin
