- 1 hr 32 min
Orca: The Killer Whale is a story of one whale’s revenge against the crew that killed his mate and child. Captain Nolan, played by Richard Harris, is responsible for the death of a female whale that is netted and pulled onto his ship to be transported to a local aquarium. He captures the whale, never realizing that he is signing the death warrant of not only himself but his crew as well. The movie starts with a great white shark targeting a scientist that is aboard Nolan’s ship. The killer whale comes out of nowhere and kills the shark, saving the scientist but drawing Nolan’s attention. Believing that the whale is a male, Nolan captures it, wounding it in the process. Once the whale is on board the crew realizes that it is not only female but pregnant. The female whale miscarries and the crew just hoses the fetus over the side of the boat while the male whale looks on screaming. When the grief stricken male attacks the boat, one of the crew lets the female go. The next morning the people of a seaside town find the body of the female on the beach where the male had pushed her. The male killer whale is now set on getting revenge for the death of his mate and child. It comes to light that killer whales are like humans; they mate for life and seek revenge if you hurt their families. Nolan and the rest of his crew race against time to kill the whale before it kills them. Not only does the whale attack the crew, he starts attacking the village as well to get the crew to come to him. He wants them to follow him out into the middle of the ocean so he can have his revenge.
