Soul Surfer

What it's about:

The inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again through the love of her family, her sheer determination and unwavering faith.

What the critics thought:

"Shamelessly pandering to the elusive Christian family audience, a committee of 18 producers and seven writers has removed nearly every trace of grit from this airbrushed portrait."
- Lou Lumenick,New York Post


"Soul Surfer is the kind of sturdy, satisfying family drama that doesn't get made very often anymore. But even beyond that, at crucial moments it shows there's actually a brain behind the camera."
- Stephanie Zacharek, Movieline


"Bethany's determination and faith are remarkable. It's too bad this movie made a brave young woman's life appear like an unremarkable soap opera."
- Claudia Puig, USA Today

When you come back from a loss, beat the odds and never say never, you find a champion.
