Any time...personal history is touched upon, it is quickly shoved under the carpet in favor of yet another sailing montage, complete with compulsory sunset. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- Morning Light fails as film or TV. It's essentially a vanity project for sailing enthusiast Roy E. Disney.

Rating: 1.5/4 -- This flat, uninspired sailing documentary from the Walt Disney studios has surprisingly little to say. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- The aristo-brats are required to jump into a swimming pool and tread water for five minutes with their shoes on. Horrible! Still, one of them nearly drowns, proving that he shouldn't be allowed near a body of water larger than a bottle of Poland Spring. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The documentary is enjoyable, though it could have been edited more tightly.

Rating: 2.5/4 -- A vanity project...[but also] a sincere love letter to sailing, as seen through the eyes of a handful of very lucky youngsters. [Blu-ray] Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- If you don't speak the jargon of sailing and racing, most of the conversations between teammates mean very little. Impenetrable editing reduces the action to a meaningless blur.

Product Description:

Experience a riveting and inspiring true life adventure aboard the high tech sloop Morning Light. Fifteen rookie sailors have one goal in mind, to be part of her crew, racing in the most revered sailing competition on Earth, the Transpac Yacht Race. From start to finish, its a rollercoaster ride of emotions and physical challenges, beginning with six months of intense training. Only eleven will survive to race in the grueling 2,225 mile Transpac. Matching wits and skills against experienced pros and the unforgiving, unpreditcable Pacific Ocean, these young men and women develop a powerful bond and prove how dedication, teamwork and an unyielding spirit can overcome the greatest of odds.

Bonus Features include: Stories from the Sea with host Jason Earles, ESPN Special Making the Cut
