Well Executed Story For Both Adults and Kids
Yes, there were simplistic clichés, but for a PG-rated movie and the confines therein, Big Miracle is about as good as it can get. The Inupiat people, the reporters, the extraction industry – all sides were treated with a degree of nuance. The take-away message was really important too – that you can accomplish things with people you don’t agree with or even like. And we really enjoyed the efforts made to set the film properly in its late 80s period.
I disagree with the other reviews that found the special effects lacking. I don’t think they detracted from the story, which in the end was quite compelling.
As an animal lover, I looked forward to this movie but ended up being offended by it. It mostly amounted to anti-Reagan, anti-Republican, anti-oil drilling propaganda and pro-tree hugger philosophy. The opportunistic price-gouging of the townspeople in the frozen tundra was made light of ($40 for a 1×2′ piece of cardboard to stand on?) yet the wealth of the oilman was mercilessly persecuted. Although the efforts to save a small family of whales is laudable, I somehow find it ludicrous that so much time, effort, human risk and financial funding was spent when those resources could go to medical research, education, etc. The main message seemed to be how the media can spin anything to suit the biggest spender who is only interested in PR for his/her cause; this is disgusting to everyone, including Greenpeace and insulting to the general public. I cannot recommend it despite the good acting and cinematography.
