Morning Light is a sunny, saltwater-splashed tale of inspiration.

It's extremely good at communicating the joy of sailing, of putting its finger on the unique aesthetic appeal it offers its addicts and of making us believe that it is a precious gift that will enhance the future of these young people.

It has a lot of postcard-pretty pictures of glorious sunsets and fresh-faced kids. But for a movie about a lot of hard work, it is rather laid back.

An OK sports doc that owes as much to reality TV competitions as it does to the genre of nautical cinema.

(T)his may be one of those achievements in human endurance that doesn't elicit cheers, but sneers. It's just too picture perfected to be powerful.

Any time...personal history is touched upon, it is quickly shoved under the carpet in favor of yet another sailing montage, complete with compulsory sunset.

Morning Light fails as film or TV. It's essentially a vanity project for sailing enthusiast Roy E. Disney.

This flat, uninspired sailing documentary from the Walt Disney studios has surprisingly little to say.

All good intentions aside, Morning Light is nothing more than a glorified television documentary.

The film may interest sailing enthusiasts. For the rest of us, Morning Light is a yawn.

It's just so Disney. It could make you very cross.

For those who love sailing, Morning Light will confirm their passion and please them right down to their Top-Sider encased toes. For the rest of us, this sailors' tale just smacks of naval gazing.

If you don't speak the jargon of sailing and racing, most of the conversations between teammates mean very little. Impenetrable editing reduces the action to a meaningless blur.
