We slowly learn to see the water through their eyes, recognizing the different perils between lazy deep sea giants and the more brutish, tight curls that spit the brave straight onto the rocks.

It's dramatic, visually arresting and features two pretty interesting guys who love life, but it always feels safe and just a little predictable.

It's as real as a blast of saltwater to the face, and the film's moments of human self-doubt are as fascinating as the superhuman antics on view.

As giddyingly involving as the sports action is (and, at times, it is positively vertigo inducing), it is the themes of mateship, ageing, fatherhood and legacy that resonate most profoundly.
