Eventually suffers from its accumulation of admittedly spectacular but repetitive images and would probably benefit from both extensive trimming and projection on a large-format screen.
A superb documentary that delves into the science, emotions and danger surrounding the handful of men and women who risk their lives searching for the ultimate thrill.
A dog's dinner of profiles, repetitive narration, safety tips and banal 'insights' into the joys and dangers of cresting waves that sometimes reach 70 feet.
