Free Willy 3: The Rescue

Newtown Elementary
Mount Pearl, Newfoundland

By Pascoe P. (grade 5)

Free Willy 3's star is Jason James Richter (Jesse). I would say this movie is top rated for kids. It is a thrilling movie with suspense, action and drama.

Jesse teams up with a friend (Max Wesley) to save Willy from illegal whalers in a fishing boat. Max thinks his father is just on a fishing trip, but he is really hunting whales illegally. When Max finds this out he doesn't report it to the police for fear his father will go to jail, and they almost get Willy! Max's father asks him to take a shot with the harpoon. But Max recognized Willy and tries to miss him. He misses him, and his father gets mad and yells at him.

At the beginning Jesse gets hired on the boat called the "North Star". But he knows more than the captain of the boat, so he calls Willy in by using an instrument that gives off sound vibrations. The rest you will have to find out for yourself.

I personally liked this movie. I know my dad really liked it. I would probably get the movie if it comes out on video. I would rate this movie about 4 and a half out of 5 stars and highly recommend that you see it. The movie is rated PG.
