Dolphin Hunters Threaten to Sue "The Cove" Film, If They Watch It

Posted: October 21st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dolphin Hunters Threaten to Sue "The Cove" Film, If They Watch ItSubmit Comment
"The Cove" is a documentary which exposed the annual slaughter of thousands of dolphins in the small fishing town of Taiji, Japan. After appearing at several film festival, the filmmakers returning to Taiji and were happy to see that there were no dolphin killers in sight.

Now that Japan is hosting a screening of "The Cove" at the Tokyo International Film Festival, a coalition of Japanese fisheries (which strongly supports the killing of dolphins) have sent an angry letter to the festival organizers, threatening legal action if they see something they don't like in the movie.

The letter is hilarious and is written before the fishermen actually saw "The Cove." "We've heard that the film includes factual errors," they wrote, "and so we may take some sort of action, including legal steps, if we watch it and find problems."

The Taiji fisheries official added that the town would keep hunting dolphins.

If the movie is about slaughtering dolphins, and everyone (themselves included) are open about the fact that they slaughter dolphins what exactly are they worried about seeing. Instead of a shirtless fishermen whistling a jaunty pirate tune as he hacks away at a dolphin with a machete the films creators may play ominous tonal music? Slaughter is slaughter, you can't really show it in a positive way.

Anyone that kills a dolphin, whale OR shark should be made into Soylent Green.

I can't decide weather Dolphins are cool or not. On one hand they are so friendly it's stupid, on the other hand i use to watch Flipper and Lopaka as a kid.

They will look like killers no matter what cause people thinks it's crazy to kill a dolphin, but it's legal for them so who cares if they kill them. They are lower on the food chain. How about tune safe dolphin on the shelves?

I am going to play a little devils advocate here on a only semi-related subject. Have any of you ever seen Free WIlly 3: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Willy_3:_The_Rescue

well the plot goes a little something along the lines of whale lovers and whale hunter's 10 year old son defeat the whale hunters and convince the errors of their ways. Interestingly enough the film decides to openly address the issue that the father of 10 year old has no idea what he is going to do with his life now that he has realized the error of his ways. This the film leaves unresolved.

Anyway i always felt really mixed about this. Sure I loved willy, but like come on, the dad's family has a history of hunting whales, its like tradition, and has helped their family along for like over 200 years in the film, and they throw that all down the drain because of a couple people trying to protect 1 orca.
