Consensus: Much like its predecessor, Dolphin Tale 2 offers animal antics and sweet, old-fashioned drama that the whole family can enjoy.

This is innocuous, heart-in-the-right-place family fare, but its well-earned points about animal rights and preservation would be better taken if the relentless sentimentality didn't force viewers into flippers-in-the-air submission.

"Dolphin Tale 2" cares about the right things: the details of marine rescue, the dedication of the individuals involved, and the lives and personalities of the animals under their care.

[Dolphin Tale 2] is a movie and a world where adults are evil, children are mighty, and justice is won with a hug.

In a world full of cheapened, bombastic entertainment aimed at children, this modest, honest little movie feels special in its own way.

The aquatic photography is very good and there feels like genuine emotion for Winter. It's formulaic and predictable, but hey, it sort of has to be.

A heartwarming sequel with Winter, everyone's favourite dolphin. Whilst the sequel is not as good as the original it still keeps you entertained.
