Critic Reviews for Blue Crush 2
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
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.
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.
This actually wasn't a bad movie. By far better than the first Blue Crush, but nowhere comparable to Soul Surfer. Overall, not a bad watch.
