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.
Sea World's behavior is almost as bad as that seen in The Cove (and if you haven't seen The Cove, you should, it's on Netflix). While I recognize the biological research you've presented over the years, Sea World, your time is OVER. Release your whales and close your doors.

I feel so horribly for the trainers who were killed but I seriously cannot believe the lack of responsibility Sea World is willing to take for anything. These whales should not be held in captivity at all it's only natural that they would go crazy being forced to be controlled by humans who do not understand that
Am so heartbroken over the animal cruelty perpetrated by Sea World (and tolerated by so many of us who didn't know any better at the time). Please realize that Sea World is not alone in its inhumane and immoral treatment of God's creatures: zoos, circuses, etc., are also showcasing abused animals for entertainment. Please consider joining PETA and other animal rights groups so that the impact of #Blackfish is felt for good.
It's sad because people still have the mindset of "Sea World" has been open for many years, and nothing will ever change. But, coming 2015, all wild animal circuses in the UK will be banned. Things CAN change, and they will, if enough people stand up and say that this abuse is unacceptable. Tilikum cannot stand up for himself, so it is our job to be his voice. He was never supposed to be in tank to begin with, and now he is being punished for doing the thing he would naturally do in nature. He is unpredictable. He is wild. And he belongs in the ocean.
