Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of the movie.
Last weekend for family movie night, we decided to watch "Dolphin Tale 2". We enjoyed the original "Dolphin Tale" so we were interested in finding out how Winter's story continues. In case you have not seen the first movie let me just share a few details. The first movie is about a bottlenose dolphin named Winter and a boy named Sawyer. When Winter's tail is caught in a crab trap, Sawyer calls for help and comforts the dolphin until the Clearwater Marine Hospital is able to rescue her. When Winter's tail needs to be amputated, Sawyer comes up with the idea of having a prosthetic tail created for her to help her swim correctly.
In this sequel, the team at Clearwater Marine Aquarium has a new challenge to overcome when Winter loses her surrogate mother. Not only are they concerned about Winter as she grieves, but regulations require dolphins to be paired. With the possibility that Winter might have to be moved, they hope that they might find a companion for Winter before time runs out.
I love watching movies based on true events and "Dolphin Tale 2" met my expectations. It was both entertaining and family friendly. I also liked the fact that at the end of the movie actual footage was shown of some of the events seen in the movie.
"Dolphin Tale 2" arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD on December 9 from Warner Bros Home Entertainment and would make a great family-friendly movie to give at Christmas.
