Synopsis


Soul Surfer
A champion surfer loses her left arm in a terrifying shark attack, but summons the determination to make an incredible comeback in this inspirational sports drama based on an incredible true story. A lifelong surfer who always felt at home in the sea, Bethany Hamilton (AnnaSophia Robb) honed her surfing skills in Kauai, and went on to compete in numerous surfing competitions. Then, one fateful Halloween morning, the wave-riding teen was taking part in a national surf competition when a 14-foot-long tiger shark emerged from the depths and changed her life in the blink of an eye. By the time Bethany reached shore, her left arm was almost completely gone. But just when it started to look like she would never ride a surfboard again, young Bethany used her faith and determination to reclaim the title of champion while being cheered on by her supportive parents (Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt), and Sara (Carrie Underwood), the kind-hearted leader of a local youth group. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I actually rented this movie from Netflix before recently purchasing the Blu-ray-DVD combo from Best Buy. Never heard or knew anything about the movie before adding it to my queue. However after watching it I thought it was one of the better rentals I watched. Parents may want to use some viewing discretion with younger kids because of some of the graphic scenes involving the shark attack. Even though the shark attack might be a little scary subject matter for young kids it is still a great family movie overall since the movie is very inspiring for anyone trying to over come difficult challenges in their lives. I have not seen the blu-ray version yet, but imagine it should exceed the DVD in video and audio quality. However the DVD copy I saw looked and sounded great on my home theater system. There is also a modest set of extras included. If you get a chance pick this one up, or rent a copy.

    Very inspiring movie based on a true story. I remember when this happened as well as when she returned, successfully, to surfing, so I was very interested in seeing this movie. It was great and I would recommend it to anyone suffering any hardship. Hardship is such a relative term.

    Fabulous film that I turn to time and time again! Fabulous story that keeps you entertained. Cinematography and special effects are so good, you never stop to think about them (everything is seamless!). If you are looking for a great inspirational flick, check this one out. Even more stunning on blu ray!

    Excellent true story...some of the actors could have been better cast, but when you know this story of Bethany Hamilton is true, and how her faith in God not only helped her survive but caused her to be triumphant and fiiled with joy, it is truly inspirational.

    The acting in this movie is great. Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid did a great job in acting this story. They were believeable that Anna Sophia Robb was their daughter with concern and love. Great inspirational story with a great and loving family.

    I bought this movie because my son has decided he wants to surf and I worry about the dangers that come along with it. This movie shows those dangers, but also shows how to keep following your dreams and not give up in the wake of tragedy.
