I thoroughly enjoyed the surfing sequences
filmed on the north shore of Oahu with outstanding cinematography,
but that's where it ends.
It's like watching a rerun of something
you've seen a dozen times. There's no soul, charm, or wit.
If you're looking for summer popcorn fun,
you may feel cheated. Sucked into the undertow, Blue Crush
would have been better if the characters didn't speak.
A total wipeout.
Every generation gets their own surfing
film--Gidget this is not!
Instead, what you get is a techno/MTV/girl-power
film that completely misses the mark, with one of the worst scripts
of this endless summer.
When it comes to shooting the pipe, absolutely
stunning camera work takes over, but is it enough to save this
film from drowning?
It's hard to believe any one of these girls
has ever acted before.
is about three surfer girls. The problem I had with this sports
movie, is its humdrum storytelling by the numbers.
I was hoping to see a documentary about
real-life female surfers, but that wasn't to be; there was just
too much land-based silly talk for me, and not enough water-bound
There is some nice scenery, and the surfing
sequences at the end are great.
The story gave no reason to care.
