Dolphin Tale 2

SHARE

(2014) ★★½

Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Friday 7 August, 7.45am and 5.15pm

Panic stations at Clearwater’s Marine Hospital when Winter’s poolmate passes on to the big blue lagoon in the sky. Regulations stipulate that dolphins cannot be left alone and if a partner can’t be found, Winter will have to be shipped to another aquarium. Director Charles Martin Smith plays the bureaucrat waving bits of paper in Harry Connick Jr’s face in an innocuous kiddie-flick sequel that gives the impression of treading water. As in the first film, Nathan Gamble is good – serious like schoolboy Christian Bale in Empire of the Sun. And if life lessons need to be dispensed, surely no one’s better suited to the job than Morgan Freeman. Soul Surfer’s real-life inspiration Bethany Hamilton lends her seal of approval to the Rescue-Rehab-Release proceedings. But the poolside drama seems drippier this time round, even though pelican Rufus remains quite the scene-stealer. The camera likes Mavis the yellow sea turtle, too.
