I liked the setting and cinematography. The characters were likable and the story, interesting. The movie had very much of a Disney family feel to it, and that's OK for me, since I'm fond of those types of movies as well. Though they often aren't amazing, they are most often of the 'fell good' variety, and I like to feel good as much as the next guy. One other note, I liked that from a political perspective, the movie was fairly responsible in showing the two sides of the whale hunt, one of a perspective of fending off the potential extinction of these beautiful and intelligent creatures, and the other of a culture that for hundreds of years has respectfully hunting and killed them for their own survival, as well as their logical reasoning for why they have always intended to continue on with the tradition, though in reality, continuing to do so would likely end up with an ultimate end to their opportunity to do so anyway. Even more responsibly, the movie doesn't try to dictate what the viewer's opinion should be, but rather it just presents food for thought and understanding.
