Bewertungen für Mein Freund, der Delfin
St. Petersburg Times
Family-friendly Dolphin Tale has finally arrived in theaters. Rest easy, our critic says in his review. The movie gives Winter and Tampa Bay a squeaky clean polishing.
Sacramento News & Review
A sullen Florida adolescent (Nathan Gamble) finds a purpose in life when he befriends a wounded dolphin; he becomes a volunteer at the marine hospital where the dolphin is recuperating and enlists a Veteran’s Administration orthopedist (Morgan Freeman).
"Dolphin Tale" is an enjoyable, but predictable, feel-good live-action family film that suffers from mediocre 3D. Very few of the effects work and the overall picture is dark.
The true star of Dolphin Tale is Winter, a bottlenose dolphin who plays herself in a heavily fictionalized version of her own story. In real life, an injured Winter was discovered in a crab trap, rescued, and brought to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, whe
It's almost impossible to watch Dolphin Tale without thinking of Free Willy. Both films are about young boys who defy their parents (and eventually win them over) in order to help an aquatic mammal.
Dolphin Tale is a first-rate family film, from the same people who brought us 2009's Oscar-winning The Blind Side. It manages to fall short of being overly syrupy and schmaltzy, thanks to terrific perfomances from Connick as marine hospital chief Clay...
Over the years, I’ve reviewed hundreds of movies, and I’ve been exposed to dozens of types of movies. Depending on the film, how it is presented and how it is released, I am sometimes harder on it, and under other circumstances, I’m more kind.
These are movies that, when you leave the theatre, stick in your memory long after the lights have come up. A new film opens this week that joins this short list: Dolphin Tale.
In a move that's as remarkable as fitting a dolphin with a prosthetic tail, director Charles Martin Smith blends all of these elements to make "Dolphin Tale" the king of must-see movies. Just be sure to bring extra tissues.
Fan The Fire
When his cousin (Stowell) flies out for service, Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) feels lost. Struggling to find focus during the summer holidays, despite enforced classes at school, it’s not until a chance encounter cycling to school one day,
When I was an elementary school film critic, one of my favorite injured animal movies was Sammy The Way-Out Seal. It's okay if you don't remember that one. It was a Disney movie from 1962 and they used to show it a lot on television in the 1970s.
Dolphin Tale is as squishy as the ocean is deep, yet as far as feel-good family films go, Charles Martin Smith's inspired-by-true-events saga exhibits a general refusal to unduly manipulate.
Dolphin Tale is a heartwarming family film inspired by the true story of an adorable bottlenose dolphin named Winter, who was rescued by a young boy off the Florida coast and taken in by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
The Austin Chronicle
This true story of the world's first dolphin with a prosthetic tail provides solid family entertainment.
'Dolphin Tale' is about coping with disability and loss, and is based on a true story about the friendship between a shy and lonely 11-year-old boy and a seriously injured bottlenosed dolphin.
Most of the family films churned out today are so junky it's almost a shock to find one in which the animals never spout sassy one-liners, or show off their hilarious hip-hop moves.
Dolphin Tale offers both, recounting the true story of Winter the dolphin from around 2005 when she lost her tail fin in a crab trap, only to be later fit with a prosthetic tail. You can still watch Winter via webcam on her site.
Susan Granger Entertainment Commentaries
Back in 2005, troubled, fatherless, 11 year-old Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) was walking down South Beach in Florida, when he saw a young dolphin caught in a crab trap.
The Baltimore Sun
I'll be honest, in the spirit of the honestly shameless heartwarmer "Dolphin Tale." I saw it in a somewhat distracted, agitated state.
New York Post
'Dolphin Tale" is a reasonably uplift ing kids movie if you don't think about it too much. I get paid to think about things too much, and effective as the movie is, it nevertheless left me slightly put off.
Jackie K. Cooper
“Dolphin Tale” is a heartwarming family film whose story is based on a true event. The focus of the film is on an injured dolphin named Winter (who plays herself).
DOLPHIN TALE may not be a perfect film, but it is an ideal family film. Making one is not as easy as it sounds. Making it so that that 2D version plays so well that you needn’t waste the extra money for the 3D glasses is even better.
A picture like Dolphin Tale can rise or fall on the performances of the child actors involved, and luckily, both Gamble and Zuehlsdorff keep things low-key.
Time Out New York
A kids’ movie without condescension, Dolphin Tale never loses track of its most valuable asset: the squeaky marine mammal that inspired its story. Winter the bottlenose plays herself in this scrappy underdog.
"Dolphin Tale" is a sweet, feel-good film about a boy who helps save a dolphin, and how the dolphin then helps save him.
Dolphin Tale is the kind of movie that was born because a studio executive got dollar signs in their eyes while watching the Today Show a few years back.
Call it Prosthetic Flipper, but the truly inspiring Dolphin Tale is perfect family entertainment (although why it needs to be in 3D is a mystery).
Nearly drowning in Hollywood sap
Chances are, you've heard this "Dolphin Tale" before.
The sentiment runs thick and deep in "Dolphin Tale," a heartwarming family film based on a true story about a dolphin that was fitted with a prosthetic tail.
An Inspiring 'Dolphin Tale'
A smart, sweet and even -- dare I say it? -- inspiring kid-engineered story of real-life courage and ingenuity, "Dolphin Tale" is also about as WYSIWYG a film as you'll see this year, provided you've seen the trailer, which has been pretty hard to avoid.
Dolphin Tale is a dramatisation of Winter's story, but it's a loose one at that.
'Dolphin Tale' is inspired by the true-life rescue of an injured dolphin, after it became entangled in the ropes of a crab trap off the coast in Florida. That dolphin came to be known as Winter, and she sportingly plays hersel...
Shadows on the Wall
Dolphin Tale Relentlessly heartwarming, this film can't help but move us to tears. Honestly, it stars a disabled dolphin, an injured war veteran, a couple of cute kids and Morgan Freeman! It's also a great story, nicely told.
The movie is an educational tool for the young ones, and an inspiring tale for the adults. The production’s call to action for its audiences to preserve marine creatures is a strong one, and if you are interested to find out more about this true tale...
Alcon Entertainment’s Dolphin Tale is based on the true story of a young boy who develops a bond with an injured dolphin and who then takes great pains to ensure that the dolphin gets a new lease of life.
This movie could have fallen into the deep end of slop and sentiment at any given moment. And yet, thanks to a smiley-faced cetacean and some truly subtle turns from a veteran cast, Dolphin Tale clears every hoop of cliché before making a big emotional..
Every now and then, along comes a movie that doesn't attempt to be genre-redefining and yet manages to stand out. Apart from staying true to its original intent as well as entertaining its target audience, Dolphin Tale goes a step further...
Harry Connick Jr. and Ashley Judd play human sidekicks to a very cute dolphin amputee in this heartwarming and undeniably sincere story of an animal who gets a second chance, thanks to some kids and a group of empathetic grown-ups.
The film-makers have resisted the obvious pun of calling this A Winter’s Tail, as it tells the (mostly) true story of a dolphin washed up on a Florida beach having been caught in a crab trap.
IT’S NOT half term for another week, but here’s a family-friendly film which deserves to be a smash hit when the schools break up.
This family flick benefits hugely from its core casting coup: dolphin Winter, whose amputated tail was replaced with a revolutionary prosthesis, plays herself.
The Guardian UK
It's easy to roll one's eyes at Dolphin Tale, which is heavy on swelling music and how children – aw, shucks! – can teach adults a thing or two about holding on to hope. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) is a lonely...
Time Out London
Pack a few discreet hankies for this warm-hearted but schmaltzy family pic. ‘Dolphin Tale’ is based on the story of Winter, a bottlenose dolphin rehabilitated at Florida’s Clearwater Marine Hospital after becoming tangled in a rope at sea.
Lonely kid Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) meets injured dolphin and — here we go again — tries to heal his Huckleberry friend and, henceforth, the world. Taking the true story of a Florida sealife hospital that crafted a prosthetic tail (titular pun alert)
