The Ruby Review: Soul Surfer

Soul Surfer Official Movie Poster

Soul Surfer - 3.5 stars

Since I was a little kid, I've heard about the incredibly unfortunate shark attach on Bethany Hamilton. This movie may not have been the best I have ever seen, but it is sure an inspiring story. Starring Anna Sophia Robb as Hamilton, this film shows the life of the girl known for losing her arm to a 14 foot tiger shark. Living in Hawaii, surfing was her life. Most would abandon the sport after losing an arm, seeing it as an impossible task. But Hamilton, a truly brave soul, overcame the challenge and is today one of the top female surfers around. Highlight was the beauty throughout the movie. Not only were the islands lush and pristine, all of the actors looked exactly as dedicated surfers should- very tan and very blond.
