The Cove

"In the 1960's, Richard O'Barry was the world’s leading authority on dolphin training, working on the set of the popular television program Flipper. Day in and day out, O'Barry kept the dolphins working and television audiences smiling. But one day, that all came to a tragic end. “The Cove,” directed by Louie Psihoyos, tells the amazing true story of how Psihoyos, O'Barry and an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers embarked on a covert mission to penetrate a hidden cove in Taiji, Japan, shining light on a dark and deadly secret. The mysteries they uncovered were only the tip of the iceberg (Synopsis Source: Golden Village website)."

I feel that it's impossible for human to stop killing endangered species as there are always demands and supplies around the world. The other reason why whales and dolphins are still being slaughtered in some part of the world may be due to the people of certain countries who have been enjoyed killing from the past till now. Anyway, The Cove is a great film and I hereby "salute" to those who were risking their life in making the film a success in order to reveal the secret hidden from Taiji's city government (Overall Rating: 3/5).
