After Soul Surfer, 2011’s heavy-handed Christian drama about a surfer whose faith carries her from the hospital bed after a shark attack and back into the water proved watchable, a less overbearing film like Beautiful Wave, about a girl coming of age while immersing herself in surf culture, seemed like it might have struck upon the proper mix of saccharine and lighthearted drama. Instead, ironically enough, it lacks soul. David Mueller’s film has nothing to it whatsoever. It’s a bland, flavorless film where everything is so understated as to be ineffectual. The budding romance, the predictable happenstances, and the clumsy “heartfelt” reunion tying it off with a neat little bow arrive on the screen as if according to a checklist of coming of age drama clichés.
