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

    Oct 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.

    Oct 20, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | 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.

    Oct 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.

    Oct 11, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • If it's a quality film about surfing you crave, track down John Milius' Big Wednesday.

    Oct 6, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The documentary stirs up most of its sporadic excitement in the surfing footage, of which there is plenty.
