[6.25/10] Soul Surfer (2011)

Soul Surfer (2011)

QuickRating: Considering the fact the movie is based on a true story makes it touching, inspiring and truly uplifting, plus, it features an incredibly charming and likable cast, and its gorgeous Hawaiian scenery is nothing short of breathtaking, however, its formulaic and thoroughly predictable plot, and cliched script bring the film down to the level of 'average'. In other words, "Soul Surfer" is pleasant to watch, yet utterly forgettable.

I wanted to really love this movie and it was sweet and touching, but it did have a rather dull, tv movie of the week feel to it. I could not tell you blessed thing about it now as it's been a while and nothing really stayed with me.

I didn't think it had a TV movie feel to it, but it was so predictable I could tell what was going to happen the next scene. I love Hawaii's exotic scenery and thought it was very well-captured in this movie. Yep, there's wasabsolutely nothing memorable about it, but I still enjoyed it.

What a shame! It should've been better.

Alex, it's a shame indeed. I expected a lot more from this one.
