Soul Surfer ★☆☆☆☆

"Soul Surfer's disturbingly simplistic and sanctimonious direction dilutes the genuinely interesting, real-life events into little more than Christian propaganda"

Sean McNamara's Soul Surfer (2011) stars Anna Sophia Robb as real-life surfer Bethany Hamilton, brought into the world by two beach bum parents (played by Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt) and inheriting their passion for the sport. Bethany is described as a child with "salt water in her veins", but when a devastating Great White Shark attack (resulting in the loss of her left arm) threatens to destroy her dreams of becoming a pro, she has to rely on her faith to see her through.
