It gives the feeling of life
9 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I can't stop watching all these surfing films. I'm a huge fan of Chasing Mavericks and this was up to standard! It wasn't as good as Chasing Mavericks, but still really good, the old Hippie-Flower-Power thing is making it even better.

The choice of actors/actresses was fantastic, Sam Worthington, Xavier Samuel and Lesley-Ann Brandt, just to mentions a few - did a really good job. This movie gave both joy and emotional moments and the contents were perfect. This movie is for a person who's in to surfing, and who likes the sixties. The film begins with black and white color effect, which shows us the past and then switches to color when they are grownup. Like I said the story is really interesting, and it gets even more interesting when you know it has happened!

I recommend almost anyone to watch it, and especially you who've seen "Chasing Mavericks"!
