Soul Surfer Movie Reviews
User reviews on Soul Surfer
This film is based on true story about surfer Bethany Hamilton whose hand was bit off by a shark while surfing. The film is inspirational and very emotional and it was just not my cup of tea. I felt that the film was trying to make me cry and I do not like movies like that, however my girlfriend loved the film and thought it was very touching and brave. Myself, I thought that the special effects were kind of cheap and unimpressive and the shark attack was not surprising or scary at all. The film also has heavily Christian themes and i never appreciate being fed religion when i am at a movie theater. Overall, if you are a guy, stay away from this film.
What an absolutely wonderful, inspiring, and uplifting film this was. I highly recommend seeing this film in the theaters. The film is based on surfer’s Bethany Hamilton life whose hand was bit off by a shark while she was surfing in Hawaii. The film is packed with amazing actors like Helen Hunt, Denise Quaid, and AnnaSophia Robb and they all did an amazing job with their roles. I will be honest that the film make me cry more than once and I am absolutely not ashamed of it. It was kind of weird to see Carrie Underwood in the film but I think she held her own and did pretty well. Overall, this is an amazing film.
A tremendous true story that walks through a family's most difficult struggles and the hope they find in the midst of an amazing tragedy - full of hope, laughs, fun and real people, this was a great film!
