There's a pleasantly dreamy quality to much of Eye of the Dolphin, and that goes a long way toward enabling audiences to ignore the formulaic plot and enjoy the laid-back charms of this innocuous indie.

There's real heart to be found in the story but it comes along with borderline saccharine sentimentality, a too facile ending, and clean outcomes that aren't earned.

Blandly acted, idiotically written, and incomprehensibly directed, "Eye of the Dolphin" is quite possibly one of the most incompetently made films I have ever seen.

Chicago Sun-Times

For all its good intentions, Eye of the Dolphin is unsteady and amateurish, with its own problems in getting its message across.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

A beautiful Grand Bahama island setting and majestic sea creatures can't offset an inert script and lackluster acting.

[An] unassuming, but sadly unexciting, family film.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

A limp coming-of-age tale set in the Bahamas.

Drugs and drinking make waves in family drama.

Acting is not very good, but it was okay. I was bored in the beginning but it eventually caught my attention and I finished it. I like the story...

A harmless parade of seaside cliches.
