    Synopsis


    Chasing Mavericks
    A young surfing prodigy enlists the expertise of an old pro in order to conquer a truly epic wave in this drama detailing the incredible true story of surfer Jay Moriarity (Jonny Weston). A Santa Cruz teen with a natural born talent for surfing, Moriarty can't resist the temptation to conquer the mountainous Mavericks surf break. Moriarty realizes that his lack of experience could spell doom while attempting such a formidable feat, so in order to ensure that he's well prepared he seeks the wisdom of veteran surfer Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler). Meanwhile, as Hesson teaches Moriarty how to stay balanced and focused in the face of danger, the two surfers establish a close bond that gives them the strength to face any challenge. Elisabeth Shue and Abigail Spencer co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I enjoyed the film, your basic coming of age story of a great surfer. I've always been a fan of big wave surfing, not a surfer by any means, just enjoy the ocean's beauty and the sport of surfing. Mavericks surf spot has always intrigued me so learning about the discovery and the skill it takes to surf that spot was pretty evident in this film. Acting was ok, nothing to blow your socks off, visuals were cool, great shots of the massive waves that can brew up at Mavericks. Overall a great watch IMO.

      This is a good family-oriented movie based on the true story of an inspirational young surfer. There's great acting by Jonny Weston & Gerard Butler & nice surfing scenes. This movie showcases that family can include people you love that you may not be related to by blood.

      3 out of 4 Blu-Ray movies I bought at the same time were defective. This was one of them. The others were Django Unchained and World War Z. This review will probably be rejected by Best Buy as they were not pleasant when I tried to replace these three disks.

      Even though the movie got off to slow start, the overall movie was enjoyable, and worth watching multiple times. The movie shows that some people can still meet their goals in life and live it to the fullness.

      This movie is very good. Love me some Gerard Butler and I love movies based on a true story. You really get invested in what is happening and you feel for the characters.
