Dana is 18, gorgeous and a killer surfer with a shelf full of trophies to prove it. When her father pressures her to buckle down and go to college, Dana flees her Beverly Hills home for the beaches of South Africa, the site of some of the world's most awesome surf and her late mother's home country. With her mom's journal in hand and a mismatched gang of surf fanatics watching her back, Dana embarks on an odyssey along the breathtaking southern coast of Africa to fulfill her mother's dream-one long, flawless journey down the barrel of the killer waves of J-Bay.Written by
Blue Crush 2 isn't an imitation of Blue Crush... It is a coming of age story of a young surfer girl traveling to "find herself"
Blue Crush 2 isn't an imitation of Blue Crush.
It is an entirely different story.
Blue Crush 2 is a traveling/coming of age story. A young surfer girl goes to South Africa to follow in her mother's footsteps and in the process find herself.
The acting isn't great. But that isn't the point is it? The movie is about surfing and traveling to great surf spots in South Africa.
Yes it is a cheap direct to video sequel. They don't have the budget of the original and they don't have the same star power as Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez. However is the movie still enjoyable? Does it tell a good story? Do you enjoy the surf scenes? Do you enjoy meeting her "beach family"?
I think so. Perhaps it is because I wasn't looking for an Oscar caliber film. Perhaps it is because I wasn't even looking to replace Blue Crush and I'm not offended that Kate Bosworth isn't in it (the other reviewer obviously is crushing on Kate badly.) Perhaps it is because I've gone through my own life change recently and am envious of our lead character's ability to travel South Africa and surf the legendary surf spots.
The movie for me, is good fun, and helps me keep "life" in perspective.
I'm looking to start my "Odyssey" soon.
