Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Opening The Cove is truly a mind blowing documentary. Richard O'Barry the man who captured and trained many famous dolphins for movies such as Flipper, sets out to show the world what the Japanese have been hiding in Taiji from the world for many years. They extract dolphins from the ocean into what is known as “The Cove”, where the dolphins are sold all around the world to places such as Marine Land and Sea World. The dolphins that aren’t purchased by these companies are killed and sold all around Japan. When watching this film it seems pretty hypocritical of O’Barry to be showing the world what the Japanese have been doing to these poor animals because he was the biggest dolphin trainer in the world. He was famous for the work he did with Flipper but, O’Barry quickly realized what he was doing to these animals when Flipper – also known as Kathy – committed suicide in O’Berry’s arms because of the stress of being held captive. O’Berry then set out to create an “Oceans 11” type team to show how many dolphins are being slaughtered a day by the people of Taiji. He brings along a number of people with special abilities such as a couple of free divers that can dive up to 150 meters on one breath to place video cameras and microphones in the area where the dolphins are being held captive and slaughtered. Like I said before, this movie is truly mind blowing. It opens your eyes completely on what is going on around the world. I had never heard about the dolphin slaughters in Taiji until I was shown this film by a friend. When I first heard of this movie I really didn’t have any interest in watching it but the film really gets your heart beating when the team encounters multiple police and security officers when breaking into “The Cove” and also tears your heart up when you see the dolphins being killed and when you hear their screams because they know what is going on. But most of all the part that will really get to you is the amount of blood that fills the cove from all the dolphins that are killed. The Cove is a great movie for all ages. I believe that everyone should take a look at what is going on in Japan and try and help the cause for these poor animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horrifying and Gripping ! I recently watched this heart wrenching documentary about the cruel slaughter of Japan's dolphins. The footage in this film tells it all. There is no way you can walk away from this film hearing the haunting, eerie sounds of the dolphins, and not change the way you see these gentle creatures without feeling overwhelmed with horror and sadness. I think it's a must see!
