Synopsis: Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle. –Universal
The Positive: Based on actual events, Big Miracle is a feel-good movie with a charismatic cast. The director puts humor and jabs in their proper places. Storytelling is superb as well as the animatronics. Better than the 3 Free Willy movies combined! Highly recommended for the whole family.
The Negative: It has a Disney feel to it which is not necessarily off.
STARMOMETER SCORE: 8.5/10
