AWESOME movie. It gives hope and encouragement not only to someone handicapped, but also to someone looking for a step up in hope

This is one of the best Christian movies. I have ever seen. It shows how a whole family goes through a difficult time, and thier faith supports them. Cheryl Lynn Schellenberger Mason

I absolutely loved the movie!!! Very well done and what a story to share. Going thru difficult times in life can be very difficult but with the Lord showing you the way it is much easier. Great Christian movie! Would like to see more movies like this!

The New York Times
As a portrait of a spirited, resilient athlete, the movie succeeds best, unafraid to face its heroine's daunting challenges directly. Full Review

USA Today
The inspiring story of surfer and shark attack victim Bethany Hamilton deserves a better dramatization. Full Review
David Hiltbrand
Philadelphia Inquirer
The aquatic and surf scenes are spectacular. The story, a clichéed climb to inspiration. Soul Surfer is more parable than plot. Full Review
Glenn Whipp
Los Angeles Times
That Soul Surfer rates as a giant leap for this team speaks well about the conviction the movie's actors bring to the material as well as the respect afforded the Hamiltons and their faith. Full Review

Time Out New York
Superb limb-erasing effects and lush cinematography are bonuses, though not so much the cloying presence of American Idol's Carrie Underwood. Full Review
