"Don't believe the hype. It was okay, but not as great as people have made out. The whole concept of the killer whale could just as easily have been replaced with a car crash or farming accident or anything. It only served one narrative purpose. It could have just as easily been pulled out of a hat of "crazy accidents we haven't seen on film before just to be different." Her involvement in the fights was out of place. The sequence with the kid on the ice was predictable and tacked on. The final shot and how they end up is like a whole film in itself (think Rocky). Only emotional attachment I had was at the beginning when he's scouring the train for food."
