The filmmakers do a solid and intelligent job of weaving a fictional tale of romance and marine biology espionage with the facts of a real-life legal dispute. The conflict here is between environmentalists and the U.S. Navy over its lethal underwater sonar-testing policy. This sequel (with a different cast) to the 2006 Eye of the Dolphin, was also shot in the Bahamas. Underwater footage of humans romping with playful dolphins is beautiful and engaging.
