  • Chasing Mavericks manages to sufficiently overcome the obstacles with admittedly affecting results. show more

  • Chasing Mavericks is made with more care and intelligence than many another film starting with its template might have been. It's better than most movies targeted at teens. And the cinematography of the big Mavericks scene by Oliver Euclid and Bill Pope is so frightening that you sort of understand why Frosty stays on the shore, watching Jay with binoculars. show more

  • The reason to see Chasing Mavericks is the same reason why people flock to shore locations when a hurricane approaches: the waves. This is less effective as a bio-pic of Jay Moriarty than it is as a big screen National Geographic Special. show more

    I watched this movie 3 times in a weeks time and CAN NOT explain or pinpoint exactly what this movie has done to me. All I can say is NOT ONE day has gone by since I watched it that it has not crossed my mind. I think about Jay, Kim, Frosty & Brenda EVERYDAY!!! I recommend this movie 100%. It is a MUST see!
