Big Miracle ranks among the best environmental movies of the year. First, there was Dolphin Tale Movie Review, and then there was The Whale, now we go to a small town in Alaska to see how the world is brought together in the act of ultimate sacrifice and compassion. This family movie review thinks that everyone should see this film that portrays the best side of humanity. The story takes place in small town Alaska where a news reporter recruits his ex-girlfriend to go on a campaign to save a family of whales that are trapped by ice in the Arctic Circle.

Parental Guide to the movies found this to be a movie that the entire family should see. Big Miracle was rated PG for language by the MPAA. However, this does not detract from the overall family values and compassion portrayed in the movie. The language to which they referred was well placed to emphasize the emotion of the moment, particularly during moments of suspense and frustration. Overall, Big Miracle did not go overboard in the language portrayed by the MPAA. The movie demonstrates how humans can come together to help the magnificent creatures with whom we share the earth.

In this family movie guide, the whales steal the show. They are magnificent creatures with a lot of personality. They are filmed beautifully and everyone will fall in love with them. The Big Miracle movie makes a point about the impact that humans can have on the lives of these creatures. It brings attention to the need for humans to band together for the sake of not only our own good, but also that of the creatures of the world. It also provides an excellent chance to learn about Alaska and the environment near the Arctic Circle.

The movie Big Miracle makes the point that every life is precious and about the precarious nature of life in the Arctic Circle. This movie is about breaking down barriers and putting differences aside for the good of all. In this movie, the US and Russian military put their differences aside in a gesture of good will to help the whales. Big Miracle has a positive message, not only about the environment, but also about what we, as humans are capable of if we try. Enjoy Big Miracle for a great day out with the kids.
