Surf's Up Reviews

    Poor writing, almost no climax. Very clique with the stronf stupid guy and the OG help the main character. Chicken man was the only good thing.

    While it doesn't fully commit to the mockumentary aesthetic and essentially becomes another conventional animated family film halfway through, Surf's Up is still a unique animated experience as the documentary format was genuinely unheard of in an animated film before, the voice acting is good (yes, even Shia LaBeouf's), the humour matches well with the mockumentary approach (my personal favourite is when the chicken who behaves like a stereotypical stoner is being cooked by a nearby tribe on the island where the sporting event takes place and casually leaves none the wiser and when they come back for him, its a weird squid-thing that tastes like chicken that gets them off his back) and the animation looks amazing. Even though it was only Sony Pictures Animation's second full-length feature film and this was 11 years before the visually mindblowing Into the Spider-Verse, the backgrounds look stunning and the CGI water is on par and, dare I say, even better than Finding Nemo's computer-generated water, which might be taken for granted nowadays but was groundbreaking back in 2007, especially since this wasn't done by Pixar or DreamWorks. All in all, Surf's Up is much more fun than its poor timing - the third penguin movie to come out after March of the Penguins and Happy Feet - and seemingly one-joke premise of "birds on surfboards" seem to imply.

    Surf's Up is the most underrated animated film of all time. It is stylistically the most creative animated film thanks to its reality tv/documentary style. The voice cast is not noticeable but yet is a huge part of the quality of the movie. The story itself is a well thought out story following a character who evolves throughout the movie with the help of others. It is family friendly and funny in nearly every scene. The scenes that aren't as funny are the emotional scenes that add a surprising amount of depth to the story. An absurd premise mixed with great execution make for a surprisingly awesome film.

    Overall it's an entertaining film that's delivered in a documentary type format that really works well.
