BlackFish

Bullseyes:  ③ (out of 5)

Does anyone still go to Marineland?  Are we all still that stupid?  Well that's a shame. Maybe movies like Blackfish will tip the scale…?

Blackfish tells the tale of Tilikum the Killer Whale, a ‘blackfish’ as the Native American’s call them, a mammal which truly embraces its ‘killer’ label. After mauling a trainer in Sealand of the Pacific, Tilikum is moved from bathtub to bathtub where he systematically torments and executes a slew of hapless trainers.  

We watch eerie amateur recordings and hear eye witness accounts of Tilikum’s kills and near kills and scream along with the excited Aqualand crowds as they witness death and maiming – all for just $15.99! 

I was so depressed at the end I had to hop on the bus and go to the zoo.
