About the Movie

SOUL SURFER is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid. In the wake of this life-changing event that took her arm and nearly her life, Bethany's feisty determination and steadfast beliefs spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A by-the-numbers biopic about young surfer Bethany Hamilton. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Apr 8, 2011

Rotten: Shamelessly pandering to the elusive Christian family audience, a committee of 18 producers and seven writers has removed nearly every trace of grit from this airbrushed portrait. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Apr 8, 2011

Fresh: It's Bethany and Alana's friendship - its sturdiness and vulnerability, its laughs and sincere apologies - that rules the day. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Apr 8, 2011

Fresh: For plenty of family viewers, this film will catch a wave. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Apr 8, 2011

one of the best movies i have seen so far. i cried through most of this movie.
really inspiring and loving. its a must see and a must buy.

We need more movies like this one...

Excellent, heart-warming, edge-of-your-seat, spiritual movie that can change lives for the better.

Amazing but not that amazing

So I liked the movie and it was really cool. I also bought some of her devotionals. It is truly inspiring. But I have a friend who is obsessed. If u don't love the movie then u can't be her friend. What the movie taught her, I don't know. She thinks she's perfect bc she knows all the bible verses from the movie. Omg!!! I know twice as many. This is just nuts.
