With two arms, she was just a surfer. But it takes one arm to be a Soul Surfer.

The movie doesn't come out for another week but I saw a screening of it last night. Great looking cinematography of Hawaii, and it's based on the true story of Bethany Hamilton, whose arm was bitten off by a shark. The CGI is outstanding - YOU WILL BELIEVE ANNASOPHIA ROBB ONLY HAS ONE ARM. Otherwise, it's a very Christian-themed TV movie of the week. I generally liked it though it's really aimed towards young people and families. The credits with real footage of the real Bethany Hamilton are worth sitting through.

I'll ask the question we're all thinking: How did Carrie Underwood perform in her screen debut?

As stiff as a surfboard.

I would've expected nothing more.

Can there really be spoilers in a "true" story?

Sure. If you don't know anything about the story and want to find out by watching the movie. I knew Bethany Hamilton's arm was bitten off but I knew nothing else about her prior to the movie.

For a movie about setting sail to find the Fountain of Youth, On Stranger Tides feels old and tired. Only thing memorable were the mermaids. Those gorgeous, deadly mermaids. Without the mermaids, they really had nothing we haven't seen before.
