My sister and I, ages 9 and 7, both agree that this tale of a killer whale is one of the best movies we've ever watched. The scene at the end, the whole jumping-over-the-wall part, that was amazing! The expression on the evil man's face, it was priceless! It was fun to watch the bond that grew between Jesse and Willy, and I can't think of ANY slightly bad part in this five-star movie. As a 9 year-old, I recommend this movie to kids aging 7 and up. This is also recommended greatly for adults.
