"This documentary delves into the many incidents that have occurred where orcas become violent towards the trainers. Orcas in themselves arent violent creatures, which is what makes this so compelling to try and understand how these events came to pass. A sad and moving doc that's worth watching and reminds us to be respectful of all life on earth. It's unfortunate they removed it from tubi."
"This is a great documentary but it leaves you feeling just heartbroken 💔 "
"Very good documentary. Honestly just a tragedy all around. The orcas being taken from their homes and being held captive. All the people that died from this. It really just annoys me that easily avoidable things like this won’t ever stop happening. After seeing this I really just hate zoos and things like that in general. I don’t know how this came as a surprise to the people at sea world and such. These animals have such a small space, sometimes barely are fed, and are literally made to entertain us. It sucks because the trainers themselves seemed very passionate about the orcas and one of them even teared up. It’s unfortunate but I’m glad I watched it. Very well made and interesting."
"Story is told really well. Makes you question all zoos and trainer/company ethics. "
