Reviews
Entertainment Weekly "[A] authentic and heartfelt movie....As Bethany recovers from her cataclysmic wound, AnnaSophia Robb's performance comes to life." -- Grade: B 04/15/2011
Movieline "SOUL SURFER is the kind of sturdy, satisfying family drama that doesn't get made very often anymore....At crucial moments it shows there's actually a brain behind the camera." 04/07/2011
Sight and Sound "Dennis Quaid is charmingly craggy....The lion's share of credit, however, should go to Hamilton herself, performing her own stunts and offering up some sweet surf sequences in the process." 11/01/2011

ReviewSource Orlando Sentinel
Review "Soul Surfer? is the best faith-based film ever made, an uplifting, entertaining and wonderfully-acted account of surfer Bethany Hamilton's life before and after a shark bit her arm off in the waters off her favorite Hawaiian beach...Co-writer/director Sean McNamara, a veteran of many a TV show, TV movie and "Bring It On? sequel, recreates Hamilton's seaside Hawaiian life, complete with surfing siblings and surfing parents. A coup; landing Oscar winner Helen Hunt to play the mom and the always athletic Dennis Quaid as the dad...Craig T. Nelson offers solid support as the doctor who treats Bethany and reassures the always-calm kid when she wakes up, "Those things you're not going to be able to do? So small.?...The religious subtext is handled as lightly as you'd expect in a movie about surfers. Bethany's faith gives her stoicism and resolve in the face of a calamity, alters her priorities and gives her purpose...If you followed dvds accounts of Bethany's story, you know she's one tough young lady. "Surfer? goes beyond the dvds to show her inspiring spirit and the soul that surfing, and her faith, have given her.
