Blue Crush Movie Review
Set in stunning Ohuahu, with killer surf footage, the movie Blue Crush scores big on the eye candy. Stars girl surfers Michelle Rodriguez, Kate Bosworth and Sanoe Lake.
Blue Crush follows a group of girls who grew up in Hawaii and live to surf. Anne Marie (played by Kate Bosworth) is the best surfer of the bunch. She was on her way to going pro but a nasty wave introduced her head to a rock and she quickly bailed on her dream of making it big. Now, after three years, she's ready to try again. Eden (Michelle Rodriguez) and Lena (Sanoe Lake) are her best buds. Eden is kinda like her surf coach and Lena is kinda like her cheerleader. She also has to take care of her sometimes bratty lil' sis named Penny (Mika Boorem) who blames Anne Marie for the fact her mom bailed.
There are a lot of cute moments between the surf chicks as they try to make cash working as maids at an upscale resort. And, there's a pretty cool lil' romance between Anne Marie and a professional football player, (his linebacker friends are a total riot!) But mostly Blue Crush is about waves, which is good cuz the dialogue and romance aren't interesting enough to hold the flick together. As for realism... it's rather amusing to watch Anne Marie in the surf competition against all these burly, muscular surf queens when she weighs about as much as their thigh. (Kinda hard to believe she's actually competition for them.)
The footage of pipeline action and crashing surf throughout Blue Crush are unreal. No mainstream flick has ever had such wicked shots! The awesome surf shots, coupled with the killer tunes on the soundtrack will totally make you want to learn to surf, head to Hawaii or, at the very least, buy a new bikini.
