Audience Reviews for In God's Hands

You can't judge this movie the same way you judge others. The story is a little weird, acting isn't great, but they cast real surfers because they didn't want the cheesy shots like Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush and they wanted to show more of a spiritual side of the sport. The performance by the surfers as actors can be put aside because it comes from the right place and the surfing footage is excellent. It is no Step Into Liquid but it is a great addition to the DVD library.

An enchanting hypnotic trance that intoxicates the soul into believe that we can escape gravity and soar into the limitless landscape of our dreams.

This film wasn't that great. I was expecting a surf drama meets "Endless Summer 2". This film cast surf legends peppered with real actors resulting poorly. The cinematography was good and it was nice seeing surf legend Shaun Thompson in a soul surf photographer role but that was all that was good about this film. The low budget and music made this feel like something you would see on Cinemax.
