Yeah... nah.... I didn't like Soul Surfer. It's the true story of Bethany Hamilton, the 13 year old surfer who had her arm bitten off by a shark. With the help of family and faith along with steely determination, she pushes herself to get back up and compete in championships. There's no doubt its a powerful & inspirational story but the movie is made so badly. It reeks of over-sentimentality and tries to tug at every heartstring. The soundtrack is woeful and the performances are average... as is featured in the film, her family filmed her entire road to recovery and success and the real-life footage is featured throughout the credits... now THAT stuff is where the real power of the story lies. I would much rather see this story as a documentary and I believe there is a short-doco floating around. Perhaps I'll watch that sometime.
