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.
