Steve Ramos quote iconSappy melodrama, clumsy dialogue and heavy-handed proselytizing derail the inspirational story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton who survived a vicious shark attack in 2003 but lost her left arm in the ordeal.

C. Fuchs quote iconOverall, the film is decent enough, but considering the amazing true life story behind all of it, I was expecting or at least hoping for an equally amazing dramatic version of it.

Tomatometer quote iconThere's an amazing true story at the heart of Soul Surfer -- and unfortunately, it's drowned by waves of Hollywood cheese.
