Big Miracle, starring Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski, tells the true story of three whales who are trapped in the Alaskan ice and the humans who risk their lives to save them. Kidzworld has the movie review.

The Breaking Story

While reporting in the small town of Barrow, Alaska, Adam (John Krasinski) discovers a family of three whales trapped in the ice-covered waters. To breathe, they use their noses to constantly break open a small patch of water that is quickly turning to ice.

America Takes Action

A local news report quickly turns national when Rachel (Drew Barrymore), an aggressive Green Peace activist, gets involved. She uses her platform to summon political action. They enlist the help of an American barge to break apart the ice, creating a path to open waters where the whales can migrate. But when the barge gets trapped in a large ice pothole, things take a turn for the worst.

Scrambling For a Solution

Temperatures drop and the natives, reporters, political representatives and activists must work together to keep the ice from freezing over during the night. Without help, they’re forced to take matters into their own hands by using chainsaws to cut holes in the ice, leading a path to the open water. But with a massive ice wall standing in their way, the Americans have no other choice but to ask the Soviet Unions to break it apart with their barge. Will the political parties agree to let the Soviets save the day? Or will they refuse on spite and let the whales die?

The Bottom Line

Big Miracle (also starring Kristen Bell, Ted Danson and Dermot Mulroney) is a true story that took place in Barrow, Alaska in 1988. The time, effort and money put into saving these whales is heart warming, but the film didn’t offer enough feel good moments to make seeing it worthwhile. Nearly the entire film was stressful, especially for those who can’t stand watching animals get hurt.

How Many Whales In Captivity?

  • I think there are 10 orcas left in captivity.
  • There must be at least 35 around the world.
  • Is it about 48 killer whales?
  • I thought Keiko was the last one.
