PORTLAND – In this week’s Mad About Movies, Shawn Levy reviews Blackfish, a new documentary that takes a harrowing look at Orcas in captivity. 

The movie, which hits Portland theaters Monday, examines SeaWorld theme parks in California, Florida and Texas.

Levy says the film is “not pretty” as it focuses on the 2010 death of a SeaWorld trainer who was interacting with Tilikum, a 6-ton Orca who had already been involved with two human fatalities.

“There are some disturbing sights in Blackfish, but the most troubling thing about it isn’t what it makes you see but what it makes you think,” Levy says.
