Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Whaledreamers is clearly a labor of love and a call to action, but it's undermined by the sheer volume of topics it tackles in addition to the main subject."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The September 11 segment is one of the clumsiest works of montage you're likely to see."

‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile

‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"A thought provoking film that touches on issues of climate change as well as the killing of whales and includes compelling images of the great mammals themselves as they respond to the calling"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
