Movie Info

Baseball lovers have Bull Durham, football lovers have Friday Night Lights, and now volleyball enthusiasts get a chance to see their favorite sport shine on the silver screen with this tale of a fallen sports star who gets his second shot at greatness. Cameron Day (David Charvet) was a college basketball player whose proficiency on the court came at the sacrifice of his sanity. The mental demands of being a professional athlete were just too much for Cameron to handle, and just he was set to break big in the world of professional sports, the once-promising athlete mysteriously vanished for ten long years. Now that Cameron has learned how to effectively harness his inner anger, the time has come for him to have another go at greatness -- only not on the basketball court but on the pro beach volleyball circuit. Upon arriving in Manhattan Beach, CA, from Manhattan, the wayfaring athlete finds inspiration in Mia (Torrey DeVitto), an artistically inclined beach beauty who has never cared too much for jock types like Cameron. Regardless of her reluctance to date an athlete, however, Mia helps to enlighten Cameron by teaching him about the Green Flash: that fleeting moment when the sun falls over the horizon and all of nature become completely brilliant for a fraction of a second. Despite his early success, Cameron feels as is he has not experienced his own personal Green Flash just yet, though now as he makes it his mission to win the Manhattan Beach Open, he senses that true greatness could finally be within reach.

seems really forced and really rocky, containing weird messages like drinking volumes of beer makes you a better volleyball player

Audience Reviews for Beach Kings

Also called "Green Flash." Bad acting and worse dialogue. The script would have served better as toilet paper. Has some weird special effects thrown in for no apparent reason. A goofy turd with a Top Gun veneer. DeVitto looks good... and that is all.

Unintentionally hilarous! D3 meets Top Gun with volleyball instead of hockey/ piloting and more douchebaggery. The director tries to go for a visual style, but seemed to have given up halfway through, and the bad acting doesn't help. Unfortunately this is not soo bad it's good, it's just lazy and stupid.

Nothing better than watching a bunch of hot guys running around on the beach and sweating. The plot was pretty good to.
