Unoriginal, very predictable, poor story and not credible, Soul Surfer brings to us a schmaltzy story where that nor the charismatic characters neither the stunning waves can rescue.

Minus one star for having to much religions, I like this movie because it gives me hope, yes she lost her arm in a shark attack but she never gave up on her passion as a surfer. In reality, if that was me or another person you may not have that courage to continue on but after watching this movie it gives me hope that no matter what happens to me, as long as I have faith anything is possible .
PLUS 1 STAR FOR BEING INSPIRATIONAL

This is a good non-fiction movie it's nice to see the director's view it should have been a little more like the real thing. I do love the message and the meaning in this story.

This movie is great for children because it's telling them not to give up and try again

Very inspiring true story that lets you know anything can be overcome.

Beautifully told rendition of an amazing true comeback story. I loved it! Annasophia Robb was the perfect casting choice for the brave & inspiring surfer Bethany Hamilton. Also, impressive cgi & prosthetic makeup work on the removal of the arm.

Actually quite entertaining...

One of the examples were 'professional' critics simply err: This movie is much better than their ideas. Of course you need to like a drama, but if you do you will be well entertained and at times heartbreakingly taken away by the storyline. You also do neither have to be a Christian nor otherwise religious to like this movie.

This movie is complete TRASH! This is one of "those" movies that try to be inspirational but it fails to do so.

Despite some of the holywood cliches and over acting,it is the story that still makes up for the film.

Soapy but cute at times

This one is a wonder, an incredible story that can't be brought down by the horrible acting. Definitely worth seeing.
½ February 24, 2016
It's a light and entertaining story. It could have had less of a "generic" hollywood feel though.

Bad acting doesn't help make this movie any better than it sounds

Cheesy film. That preaching thing is particularly unbearable.

Soul Surfer is a decent film. It is about teenage surfer surfer Bethany Hamilton who overcomes the odds and her own fears of returning to the water after losing her left arm in a shark attack. AnnaSophia Robb and Dennis Quaid give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Sean McNamara did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and sports.
