In addition to featuring some of the best professional surfers , this film also stars a few of the most notorious North Shore rough necks. Although Kala Alexander, Kai Garcia and Makua Rothman all excel at surfing themselves, they are best known as enforcers of wave riding etiquette at Sunset, Pipe and other North Shore Beaches. These men are the quintessence of Hawaiian surf culture. When you see them on the screen, they are not merely actors, they are the real deal. See more »

In Hawaii, Anne Marie Chadwick (Kate Bosworth) is a local surfer girl, who had an accident three years ago when she was on the top of her career. She almost died in a huge wave, but now she is preparing for an international competition, with the support of the best friends Eden (Michelle Rodriguez) and Lena (Sanoe Lake), and her younger sister Penny Chadwick (Mika Boorem). Anne is traumatized with her accident, and is quite afraid of the big waves, but she aims to achieve a sponsor to follow her career and have the necessary financial support. Some days before the competition, she has a crush on the football player Matt Tollman (Matthew Davis). 'Blue Crush' is a good popcorn film, having a shallow story but compensated by the wonderful places and the big waves in Hawaii, and the very beautiful young cast. An excellent entertainment for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon for the whole family. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): 'A Onda dos Sonhos' ('The Wave of the Dreams')
