Considering the rotten quality of the original film, it seems all the sequel had to do was show up and surf. Instead, we get elephant poaching and endless looks of pinched bewilderment. I've never missed John Stockwell more.
Audience Reviews for Blue Crush 2
This direct-to-video offering isn't too bad. It's a pleasant teen drama, nothing too original or ground breaking, but I've seen worse. It's a story of teen angst (father-daughter conflict), competition, and confidence issues set against a backdrop of girls' surfing in South Africa. The lead, Dana, undaunted by any obstacle and pretty hot too, and her friend Pushy (last name galore? I don't get it either) pursue their odyssey together, so if you're a fan of female surfing, so-so hot girls, or even female empowerment, you may want to watch.
They have a real community of free spirits there, symbolized by the Grateful Dead's "Truckin" being cranked out as well as gorgeous scenery throughout. The acting is better than the script, but the cast doesn't compare to Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez in the original 2002 film. There are plenty of deficiencies here and some needless subplots, but there are a lot worse ways to spend a little time than watching pretty girls surf.
Haunted by the memory of her deceased mother, Dana leaves Malibu behind and heads to South Africa to fulfill her mother's dream of surfing Jefferys Bay.
The movie was not that bad to me. Sure it isn't at all like the first film except that there's surfing of course but this movie to me was also inspirational and overachieving. Don't mind the acting because there's barely any, just concentrate at the story and enjoy the scenery it brings.
This chapter tells the story of a young rich girl named Dana (Jackson) grieving over the death of her mother and absence of her father's love. She knows that her mom always dreamt of surfing Jeffereys Bay in South Africa so she decides to leave the security of her Malibu home behind and venture to Africa in order to fulfill her mother's dreams. Once there she meets two other young female surfers by the names of Pushy (Mathis) and Tara (Vinson). One, Tara, is a successful 'Roxy' surfer and the other dreams of being one. So Dana and Pushy decide to conquer their surfing dreams together, while some bitter rivalry ensues with Tara.
While there is some decent, not spectacular, surf footage, this movie is about a cookie cutter as it gets. The acting is a half step up from poor, the story has no surprises or twists, and the ending is exactly as you'd figure it to be. Sasha Jackson has a tremendous bikini body but seemingly little talent. The original was so much better than this. They should have left well enough alone.
