Movie Reviews

AV Club - 9/10 by Keith Phipps While Chasing Mavericks has a couple of eye-catching moments, it doles them out stingily.
Blu-ray.com - 9/10 by Brian Orndorf Chasing Mavericks is a gentle effort with modest thematic goals, and while it's compellingly made, its spirit is diluted by dreadful formula.
Reeling Reviews - 9/10 by Laura Clifford so overstuffed with life altering events some of them drift off into the ether. What [it] does phenomenally well, however, is capture the the immense power of the ocean and the strength and wits necessary to attempt to scale its biggest waves.
San Jose Mercury News - 8/10 by Mark Conley "Chasing Mavericks" ... trained its glossy, big-budget Hollywood lens on the surfing culture and did something unheard of: It got it right.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - 8/10 by Dan Lybarger If Chasing Mavericks is short in the originality department, at least directors Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) and Michael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter) know how to make the film seem believable.
Detroit News - 8/10 by Tom Long Never really [delivers] the sun-in-your-face, salt-in-your-hair, sandy-cocky thrill of surfing or surf culture.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert "Chasing Mavericks" is made with more care and intelligence than many another film starting with its template might have been.
RedEye - 8/10 by Matt Pais Jay's hard work and persistence ... is inspiring. This kid's attitude is contagious.
Spectrum (St. George, Utah) - 7/10 by Bruce Bennett Almost redeemed by a thrilling final 15 minutes; at its best during watery action scenes while avoiding the trappings of a shallow, clichéd script.
Schmoes Know - 7/10 by Mark Ellis Chasing Mavericks has an engaging story that is capably acted on land, and only gets more thrilling once it decides to get wet chasing mavericks.
Time - 7/10 by Mary Pols Chasing Mavericks may treat its characters with a little too much reverence, but it gives its titular subject its awe-inspiring due.
Screen It! - 6/10 by Jim Judy It might not be a complete wipeout, but it's far away from hanging ten in any sort of awesome way. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)
