A coming-of-age story about family, self-worth, and challenging gender roles and unfair traditions, "Whale Rider" is extraordinary.

There are so many things that are perfectly done in this heartrending and spirit-soaring movie. Wonderful lensing, wonderful acting, wonderful depiction of a culture.

Whale Rider is a boring film about a girl who isn't able to fullfill her grandfathers wishes. In my opinion, this movie has no real substance. Sure, some people LOVE it, but I was so bored with it I wasn't even going to watch the end. But, I did, hoping that maybe it would turn out good. It didn't.

Lovely film about a girl that wants be part of the cultural and social changes given in her country. It might be not visually stunning, but is certainly beautiful. It has a very nice story and a great acting. The ending is great and gives to the film a fantasy touch turning it in something special. Watch it for take a break of holywood stuff.

Not good at all and I heard it was. No matter what you have heard stay away from this movie unless you absolutely love slow movie "feel good" family movies. I was bored and you will be too.
