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."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
"Scattershot, often beautiful to look at and just as often earnest to the point of self-parody."
‑ Steve Simels, Boxoffice Magazine
"Made with the passion of the committed and the sincerity of the believer, Whaledreamers is both an ecological and a spiritual film, urging us to consider the upside of harmony and the downside of ignorance"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"There's maybe an excess of hugging in the film, but that doesn't really detract from what are some quite amazing and moving moments."
‑ 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
