The film is about a young, female surfer battles back after suffering a near-fatal shark attack that results in the loss of an arm. This movie is not terrible but it's not good either.

After an attack by a shark, Bethany finds herself struggling on pursuing what became her life- surfing. With her supportive family and friends, she will see more of life bigger than the world of surfing. *** One of the best sports-dramas I have seen in my entire life! Obviously, the strength of this film "Soul Surfer" is the story, very inspiring and very moving. The actors performed enough to justify the kind-hearted characters. Good to see amazing and fantastic surfing scenes. I well appreciated every single thing of this movie, except the appearance of Carrie Underwood (hahaha!). No, kidding aside, this film is great as it is. Good film. Must watch!
