Abominably bad production, makes reality TV look like Kubrick!
8 May 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

What last years "Grind" was to bad skateboarding movies this movie is to horrendously conceived surfing movies. Unlike real surfing movies which show a lot of great surfers, this film takes a bunch of surf shots that were initially created for a Microsoft ad campaign and digitizes them into a couple of quick montages. The rest of film is a faux documentary of a girl being videotaped by her boyfriend while she searches for a legendary surfer called 'the Monk'. They repeatedly cut to the same 3 shots of the Monk surfing a giant wave everytime he's mentioned (which is a lot). Script was improvised and yes, it's very bad, especially since it was contrived from the minds of equally bad actors who have no idea of how to speak realistically. In fact, every character in the film is more an 'extreme caricature' that anything remotely resembling reality. The style of the film is supposed to be like "Blair Witch" with the actors supposedly filming themselves, but once again this film even fails behind the camera as much as it does in front. The leading actress shows her butt in one scene for no reason whatsoever, but like most of the film everything seems to have been created for it's 'selling points' rather than for its connection to what a good movie should be. Young cast, surfing, sailboarding, a butt, and few laughs may look watchable on paper but on the big screen it's merely one word - ABOMINATION!!! Zero stars - stay away! Even on DVD!!!
