Barely coherent story, less entertaining than a cardboard box.
I think the movie, albeit animated, was too violent to be rated as General. Most of the kids in the theatre left before the midway point. A mana losing her baby after delivery, vicious polar bear attacks, killer whale attacks, a Canada goose bird having her neck broken by a killer whale are some of the scenes in the movie.
We took our gang of 3 - 5 year olds to see it this weekend. First off, the visual treatment of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the near-Arctic / iceberg area is beautiful throughout the film. The music and audio is also quite excellent, keeps you engaged in every scene. The kids did find it a bit scary, as the story revolves around a beluga who is constantly getting into dangerous situations and an evil Orca that makes his life difficult. The dubbing in English from the original French is "OK", but sometimes the dialogue seems forced. Overall, much, much better than the kids slop on YouTube or Netflix these days. We talked about it for days after the movie, definitely stuck with us.
Best Beluga movie ever! Nice message, too!!
