It was one of the hottest films out of the Sundance Film Festival, but "Blackfish" will leave you with chills. Critics have praised "Blackfish" for being an "emotionally powerful" and "mesmerizing psychological thriller" that could double as a teaching tool. Thank you for watching CNN Films' documentary "Blackfish" for more information, please visit cnn.com/blackfish.

Captivity is unnatural and it is time for people to realize that it was only profit that propelled this industry. It is time for Tillikum, Lolita and all the other orcas and dolphins to have one last breath of freedom. Wakeup world do not breed another generation of children that think this is normal or natural.
#Blackfish - if the justification for display is education SeaWorld shld ensure the education is not biased by corporate interest

How did trainers plan to desensitize possible predatory drift? Tili was taken from the wild. What was he taught before capture? Did he see some of his family murdered during his capture? I don't consider his behavior toward any of the unfortunate humans, who lost their lives, aggression.
These animals are prisoners in the name of big business. Its pathetic to see how these animals are puppets for our enjoyment. Don't just watch this show, do something. Join an organization to help save these abused animals.
From the very first thought and action to capture Tilikum, they knew this was immoral. They stole him away from his family. The way they 'trained' him with punishment and the way they 'stored' him at night in a metal box is DISCUSTING and heartbreaking. What a horrible life he has had to live. SeaWorld is sick! I hate them. I cannot believe that this type of behavior continues. They should be fined, put in captivity themselves, and SHUT DOWN!!! My God!!! I HOPE and PRAY that those involved in this hidious, immoral, evil act of stealing animals/mammals from nature get what they deserve one day. How do they sleep at night?! FREE the Blackfish!!! ;(
