Critic Reviews for Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton

  • At a long two hours, the film gets as repetitive as the tide.

    October 20, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film may not shed any new light on Hamilton, but the footage of him riding 100-foot-high waves is nothing short of awesome.

    October 20, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Take Every Wave's major fault (and this is true when filming any professional sport) is that the presentation makes it all look too darned easy.

    October 19, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's last shot is a gasp-inducing long look at Hamilton triumphantly skimming across a wave for what seems like minutes. In the end, that ride isn't worth the work it takes to get there.

    October 12, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton" doesn't exactly wade deep into the psyche of the legendary surfer, but his spectacularly filmed exploits on the water are awfully fun to watch, even for those not immersed in the sport.

    October 12, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • If it's a quality film about surfing you crave, track down John Milius' Big Wednesday.
