I just caught this movie on HBO myself. I had no idea what it was about and just decided to watch it. So glad I did! It was a really good film! Choked me up a couple of times. More people should be like Jay Moriarity ✿
Oh and.. it's way better than Soul Surfer. Miles better.
Had no idea what "Chasing Mavericks" was about, nor had I heard anything about it. Luckily caught it at the beginning on an HBO airing. Needless to say, it sucked me in and 2 hours later I was in an emotional aftershock from how powerful this movie was. Just an excellent piece of artwork all around. It invokes emotions - fear, anger, jealousy, grief, and utter joy. I had heard about Jay as a child, growing up in San Luis Obispo, CA but I didn't know much about him. This movie will make you a fan of his. I don't want to spoil it... all I have to say is... Everyone should try to be a little more like Jay Moriarity.
@dopilus Exactly. I had no clue that this was a true story, and I liked it that way. It was beautiful well done film.
A Must see. 11+/10 Cheers...
I would have missed something wonderful!
Ok still think about if I had not watched the movie previously I would NOT watch it now!?
Knowing the main character might have erm d**d even sometime after film this is a spoiler for me????
I would never watch it now?? Perhaps I am a small percent but still think about users walking in and reading this now... some of us dont want to know a thing about flick other then the plot? So happy I watched it esp for the beautiful scenery, because if I read any of this Id have something wonderful!!!!
I don't know why but surfing movies tend to be good and I do not surf. This surf-movie was good. 7/10
I had no idea this was a true story...wow.
Watched it last night. Really quite good. But of the 2 recent true story surfer movies I prefer Soul Surfer slightly over this one
Deffinitly made me smile one minute and tear the next. Enjoyed this movie a ton loved it! Deffinitly recommend!
