Overall Disappointing
21 May 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Drift begins with a family on the run from an alcoholic dad. It's a little pre-story to what's in store later. They end up on the West Australian coast looking at amazing swell coming in. Great! Let's stay here. The family makes a living shaping and selling surfboards, making wetsuits and winning the odd surfing contest. This over-arching plot has legs but they're not very nice-ly shaped legs. The sub plots though are where we're really let down. There's a lot of possible conflicts and resolutions that could be explored but the hints and clues go nowhere. The two surfing brothers fall in love with the same girl, Lani, an Hawaiian and there's a hint of jealousy in the air but it resolves without bringing the characters to a head. And that's just one example.

Surf shots are pretty good but that sort of footage is available lots of places. What we're looking for in a surf movie, guys , is a story.
