Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 01/26/2009
"THE COVE is much more than a social-issue doc, combining investigative reporting, educational filmmaking and eco-thriller elements....Shot rivetingly by cinematographer Brooke Aitken..."
Box Office - 06/19/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] passionate documentary....Skillful, unsparing and blessed with a great protagonist..."
New York Times - 07/31/2009
"Like the director's cover story, the movie is a Trojan horse: an exceptionally well-made documentary that unfolds like a spy thriller, complete with bugged hotel rooms, clandestine derring-do and mysterious men in gray flannel suits."
Los Angeles Times - 07/31/2009
"THE COVE is a powerful and effective piece of advocacy filmmaking..."
Wall Street Journal - 07/31/2009
"THE COVE is many things at once: an eco-shocker about the slaughter of dolphins, a quasidocumentary framed as a high-tech thriller and, as if that weren't enough, a tale of sinner seeking redemption."
A.V. Club - 07/30/2009
"THE COVE offers a lot to think about in terms of the future of fishing....Whiel dropping facts and arguments left and right, Psihoyos is simultaneously staging a slick, nail-biting caper film."
Rolling Stone - 07/30/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "It has the breathless pace of a BOURNE movie, but none of the comfort of fiction. This is documentary filmmaking at its most exciting and purposeful."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/29/2009
"THE COVE is the rare documentary specifically designed as a thriller....Its images of blood in the water are worth a thousand preachy words." -- Grade: B+
Movieline - 07/30/2009
"[A]s a story of ingenuity and triumph over what seems like senseless brutality, it is exceptionally well-told..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/04/2009
4 stars out of 4 -- "THE COVE, a heartbreaking documentary, describes how Richard O'Barry, director Louie Psihoyos and a team of adventurers penetrated the tight security around the Taiji cove adn obtained forbidden footage of the mass slaughter of dolphins."

Product Description:

A shocking tale of human cruelty, this documentary goes beyond the traditions of the nature film to expose the horrific cause behind numerous dolphin deaths. Richard O'Barry, a dolphin trainer on the TV show FLIPPER, joins director Louie Psihoyos on a secret operation to Japan to stop the killing of innocent animals.
