Sporting a cast of up-and-coming actresses, John Stockwell's surfing flick offers up a slice of entertainment that acknowledges its roots and whose throw away pleasures arrive with no guilt.

Apesar de um ou outro diálogo se render ao clichê do "vença-seus-medos!", o filme é bem realizado, conta com protagonistas carismáticas e transforma o surfe em um esporte com incrível apelo cinematográfico.

Surfing is not a particularly complex thing to figure out from the outside, but here the photography and editing do well to demonstrate the beauty of how it all looks while moving with a momentum that wraps us up in the physical drama.

The acting is generally not bad in this movie... but the real star is the camerawork.

In all, American girls could do worse than have Blue Crush as their own summer action movie.

No hay mucho material histriónico definitivamente. Pero la Bosworth no lo requiere (jeje). Brilla una colección de fotografías impresionantes de acción y olas. Sólo eso.

There's absolutely no reason why Blue Crush, a late-summer surfer girl entry, should be as entertaining as it is

The amazing film work is so convincing that by movies' end you'll swear you are wet in some places and feel sand creeping in others.

Blue Crush is a real Splashdance...filled with jaw-dropping photography that breathlessly drags you into the waves head first and leaves you soaked with awe.
