Surf's Up is a laid back, visually stunning animated movie that brings a fresh twist to some familiar conventions. Its witty mockumentary format is fun and inventive, and the CGI is breathtakingly realistic.

Not a comedy tsunami, just consistent ripples of laughs and good vibes.
It's fun for a while, but the script doesn't have the structure to sustain 85 minutes.
Cranked out to an hour and a half, it had me flapping my arms in irritation.
It's probably not the kind of animated adventure that's going to garner Oscar talk, but it's a good-hearted, old-fashioned, family-friendly tale.
If you have to see one penguin movie, this is it.
Not exactly awash in cleverness, but it is good clean fun for the family.
On the surface, this may not sound like a particularly original idea, but director Ash Brannon handles the "documentary" framing device so well, adults may forget they are watching a cartoon.
What truly sets Surf's Up apart is the natural dialogue. The filmmakers brought the actors together to record their lines, an unusual step for an animated movie. The extra effort pays off.
O estilo mockumentary confere charme a esta animação, que também se beneficia da dublagem perfeita de Bridges e de uma técnica impressionante (a animação de fluidos é fabulosa).
The [filmmakers were] hard-pressed to come up with enough story for even an old-time six-minute cartoon short.
This is not just another penguin movie.
I'm still waiting for animation to go beyond talking animals and simplistic premises with almost take away value. I guess I'll have to sit on the fence with this one...
A light and clever animated tale that's main riff is jazzing stereotypical character cliches a little. Qiick and bountiful one-liners keep attention from flagging even when the story itself is ho-hum.See if you think if Jeff Bridges is merely rehashing his The Dude character.
I like the ending
The one with passion win the competition
The main character doesn't need to win but he defeat the enemy and got the answer.
Cute mockumentary following a young penguin and his hero.
What you may disregard as another computer animated film about penguins is quite a pleasant surprise and blows Happy Feet out of the water, literally. What makes it so original and fun is that it doesn't even pretend to be about animals but takes the shape of documentary about the biggest surf tournament of the year and its players, with all that includes: interviews, old footage, background stories and so on. It also helps that the animation is beautiful and impressive, water never looked better. The characters are lovable and fun, there are plenty of jokes, both slapstick and more subtle humor, it's just an all around fun film for all ages and actually one of the animated highlights of recent years for its different approach.
