Autumn’s Whale Rider Review

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2013 by lilkickster9

I thought the movie Whale Rider was an interesting movie. I liked that the culture was so strongly represented in the film. I also liked the activities we did in class to strengthen our understanding of the themes. The posters we made helped me understand the traditions we have in America and how other cultures share different beliefs. The actual story line of the film was compelling. The relationship between Pai and her grandfather was complex and sometimes confusing but it brought a captivating aspect to the film.

I thought the story “Whale Rider” was boring.

I thought the story “Whale Rider” was boring. It seemed as though it was leading up to something, but nothing happened.

Whale Rider was an interesting and compelling story that showed a true tradition and how one girl could break that to prove to her grandfather that she was an equal. I liked the movie and thought it was a good mix into the lesson.

The way the movie Whale Rider was shot and written made it feel too realistic and the result was that the movie was not that interesting. Even the title sounds more mythological than the movie actually was.

I felt the movie was relatively close to the book. I felt like I got more emotionally attatched to the movie and the material was more wisely used.

The beginning¬† of the story was hard to follow. It got kind of slow in the middle and I didn’t understand the part where black stuff came out of her nose. The end kind of wrapped up too quickly.

I did not enjoy this movie. It was boring in my opinion and a waste of time to read a story when you already know what will happen because of the title.
