Excerpt: It is 1988 and Adam Carlson (John Krasinski), a reporter for a small town dreams of making it big. While filming another lame story Adam discovers that a family of three gray whales has become trapped in a small hole in the Alaskan ice. He submits the footage to his station and it is soon picked up by NBC and goes viral. Soon every major network is sending reporters to cover the whale story.
Summary: "Even though they're big and powerful, they're so much like us. We're vulnerable and we get scared. We need help sometimes too." A film worth viewing for its messages and shades of brilliance from Drew Barrymore. Soundtrack and direction was average but the screenplay was good.
Summary: Adam is a local journalist reporting from Arctic where he finds a family of three Grey Whales trapped on a thickening ice of the region. This instance in a way unite communities and re-unite with his girlfriend, Rachel, "the lady from Green Peace" *** I knew that this film would not name itself "Big Miracle" without something big in it. I was right and I really love the film.
Conclusion: An unlikely combination of characters club together to help save some trapped Whales in a race against time in this feel good family film. This is an interesting film as it is based on a true story concerning environmental issues from 1988. Personally I enjoyed it whilst others a little skeptical of the intentions of the film. A good film for the family although some of the younger children did become restless.
