Soul Surfer

Movie Review:
Genre: Drama,Kids/Family, Biopic and Sports
Runtime: 106 min
Released Date: April 5th, 2011

SOUL SURFER is an inspiring, powerful true story about young surfer Bethany Hamilton, who overcame great obstacles when a tiger shark took her arm while she was surfing. SOUL SURFER is an inspiring, powerful story with a wonderful performance by AnnaSophia Robb about a courageous young woman who has deep faith in Jesus Christ.

The movie tells the famous true story of Bethany Hamilton, a rising star on the teenage surfing circuit who loses her arm in a shark attack. Bethany, played wonderfully by AnnaSophia Robb, is, as her mother says, a mermaid. She’s surfed since early childhood in front of her parents’ house on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Her whole family lives to surf and is very competitive. She has two older brothers, Noah and Timothy, who drive her to excel, as does her father, Tom. Her mother, Cheri, adds some balance to the family.
SOUL SURFER has very poignant moments that will bring tears to your eyes. It has one of those endings that make the movie work, despite some light weight scenes. The good news is that real courage comes from deep faith in Jesus Christ, not just willpower. There are powerful church scenes, but they shouldn’t alienate secular viewers because they are extremely real.
