Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 08/16/2002
"...The director, John Stockwell, communicates the thrill and peril of the support with sufficient clarity and intensity.... David Hennings's shimmery photography carries the breeze and spray of the island right into the theater..."
USA Today - 08/16/2002
"...[The film] gives you a feel for what it's like to enveloped inside a wave..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/23/2002
"...Engaging....[The film] carries a charge of genuine excitement....[The] interweaving of digital effects, rapid-fire downshifts to slow motion and back, and whooshing, crashing, in-your-ears sound creates a foam-peak of exhilaration laced with anxiety..."
Rolling Stone - 09/05/2002
"...Bosworth is a star in the making....[The surf footage] is flat-out spectacular..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/01/2002
"...It cuts to the core of what it actually means to face your fears and to ride the big metaphorical wave that is life....The energy is palpable..."
Variety - 08/19/2002
"...[Bosworth] projects radiance, delicacy, uncertainty and inner strength....There's an undeniable sexiness to both the cast and the surf..."
Total Film - 05/01/2003
"...[With] an endearing unpretentious tone..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2003
"...Kate Bosworth's central performance combines conventional 'movie-star' looks, athletic prowess and a winning sense of determination..."

Product Description:

Set among the white beaches and thunderous waves of Hawaii's North Shore, BLUE CRUSH is an adrenaline-drenched surf picture that boasts a star-making performance from Kate Bosworth. Bosworth is Anne Marie, a determined surfer who shares a beachside shack with her best friends Eden (Michelle Rodriguez) and Lena (Sanoe Lake), and younger sister Penny (Mika Boorem). Just days away from the infamous Rip Masters surfing contest, Anne Marie's life is thrown into turmoil. After being fired from her housekeeping job at a luxury resort hotel, she is courted by the hunky NFL quarterback Matt Tollman (Matthew Davis). As she tries to contain the wild emotions that are threatening to overwhelm her, Anne Marie tries to come to terms with a surfing accident from her past that nearly killed her. In order to survive the contest's deadly, crushing waves, Anne Marie must reach deep within herself to find the courage necessary to come out on top. With BLUE CRUSH, director John Stockwell gives the audience what they want: bikinis, music, romance, and surfing. His picture is graced with David Hennings' gorgeous photography, which captures the beauty and the excitement of the immensely popular sport.
