    If you are looking for a movie to inspire you, soul surfer just may be the one for you! Soul Surfer is a true story inspired by Bethany Hamilton as you go along her journey from living an amazing life in Hawaii with her best friend Alannah Blanchard surfing every day with a sponsorship with RipCurl until one day when they are out surfing Bethany gets into an accident. Bethany has to relearn some everyday life skills as basic as preparing her own breakfast. Viewers learn through Bethany’s story the importance of resilience and that if you genuinely love something, there is nothing stopping you from doing it. This is one of my all-time favourites and would definitely recommend to any ocean lovers or lovers of any sport for that matter to give you the determination to accomplish your dreams.

    Soul Surfer is an inspiring true story that follows amazing surfer Bethany Hamilton. Bethany’s is a champion surfer, winning many surfing competitions until one day her arm gets bitten off by a Shark, and her whole life is changed. Though Bethany’s life has become extremely difficult, she refuses to give up and strives to learn new ways to adapt to surfing, as well as the world around her.
    This movie is truly so inspiring and motivational. It really is an amazing example that you can do anything. My favourite scene/s were the ones where the one where Bethany goes to Thailand to help victims of a tsunami. Here, Bethany shows beautiful acts of kindness, through simple gestures that are extremely heart warming. I would recommend this film to anyone above the age of 12. This is because the scene where Bethany’s arm gets bitten off is quite gory. The shark is only shown for a few seconds, but there is a lot of blood. These things may scare a younger person. I would also recommend this film to anyone who wants a good heart warming, inspiring and beautiful watch.

    I don’t cry in movies, I am honestly cold-hearted but this movie even made ME sob. I just can’t believe anyone would actually have to go through what Bethany did. I would rate it a 8/10 because it is heartwarming, inspiring but also really, really depressing! I think this would be a great life lesson and role-model for a young girl so anyone that is 7+ should definitely watch it. But it is a bit bloody so if you get grossed out by that stuff maybe don’t watch it, or skip through that part! You should definitely go and watch this inspiring movie.

  7. Soul Surfer is one of my all time favourite movies. I have rewatched this film more than you could imagine because it is that captivating and inspiring. Soul Surfer displays some great morals and themes whilst also being based on true events. This story follows the life of Bethany Hamilton, an upcoming surfer destined to be a star. However, she faces an unexpected life changing event. I don’t mean to spoil it but let’s just say a big surprise is in store. I loved this movie because of how even through the toughest times, Bethany still persists and follows her dreams. I would most definitely recommend this movie to anyone of all ages especially if you enjoy the ocean or you possibly dream of being a surfer like Bethany. 10 out of 10 WOULD recommend.

    Soul surfer is a movie that is filled with tragic and doubt but is also filled with courage and empowerment and what makes it even more memorable is that it is a true story. The moral of this story is that you have to keep going, follow what you love against all defying odds. It is a moral that most people look up to but even so they get pushed back down and never get back up. Bethany Hamilton isn’t one of those people, she is a women who’s life got turned upside down. Wouldn’t you think losing one arm and just doing everyday things that might involve both arms would be challenging. Well she got back up and she even managed to become a professional surfer winning a national title in 2005!!!! It takes a lot of courage and I applaud her for that. It is such an inspiring movie and I haven’t managed to read her biography but I have heard that people absolutely love it because it inspires them, as does the movie. i recommend it to people who like to an inspiring story that could inspire them to…

  11. Soul Surfer is such an inspiring movie about a girl named Bethany whom unfortunately looses an arm due to a shark whilst out surfing with friends. This movie is so enjoyable to watch as we learn about the everyday struggles Bethany must adapt to whilst also deciding to learn surfing again. It’s so interesting to see how she needed to adapt with just only one arm and know how challenging it would have been for her. Bethany is such a likeable person in the movie and is always taking risks, is pretty, brave and doing her best.
    I would recommend this movie to others!

    Following a true story, Soul Surfer is a film that displays an impressing young woman, Bethany Hamilton, a surf campion who shows the world that even without an arm you can still do the what you want to do if you work hard enough. This movie is so motivating and astounding. Bethany shows perceive a lot throughout the movie, she always tried to have a positive attitude even when things weren’t going so good. Her faith in God and support from family and friends help her surf again and become the human she is today. Although this movie may make you want to stay out of the ocean for a while it also shows us that there is always hope and if you believe in yourself you can do this impossible.

  13. Soul Surfer is a movie about a girl (Bethany)who is a professional surfer. She has a full life of church, school (homeschool) and surfing with her best friends Alana. Until one day, at the beach her life changes forever. This movie shows many different aspects of hope, dreams, and body image that is really good for young girls. After Bethany suffers from a life-changing event, her outlook on life changes for a while, as she only sees the negatives in life. But her friends and family are able to help her through her tough times, and help her achieve her dreams of a national title. This movie is based on the true story of Bethany Hamilton from Hawaii, and it follows her journey through her hectic life. I would reccomend this movie for kids that are 12+, just because the scenes about her accident can be quite distressing. I really loved this movie and would watch it again for sure!

    Soul surfer is one of the most inspiring movies I have ever seen, and I know everyone says that, but it truly is. It shows the determination and passion a girl (Bethany) has for surfing after her arm was bitten of in a shark attack. Bethany is faced with so many obstacles before she is able to get back into the water and surf again. This obstacles she faces show how much passion and love she had for surfing. She was motivated and never gave up of her dream to be able to get back into the water and be able to surf like she once did. I rate this movie an easy 10/10 and recommend it for people over 10 only because it’s a bit full on but I think that everyone needs to at least see this movie once because it is such a moving and inspiring movie that will show you how fortunate and how grateful you are to have family and friends who love you unconditionally. Every part of it is meaningful and so incredibly inspiring.

    I loved this movie, it got your heart racing but it kind of made you feel sad. When Bethany loses her arm in a shark attack all seems lost and like she won’t recover, but she keeps pushing through it and accomplishes great things. This movie inspires others, especially teenage girls to keep pushing too. It’s a movie that you can watch over again and rarely get sick of, a movie full of emotion and meaning seeing it is based on a true story. I rate it a 10/10 and definitely recommend anyone who has the chance to watch it.

  16. This movie made my heart race. It was very enjoyable but I also felt for Bethany because not only did she loose her arm but it is really a true story. My favourite characters were Bethany for her mazing persistence and her best friend for not losing their friendship even though it was a tuff time. I cannot directly relate to these characters but I feel extremely sorry but also proud of what they were able to do with the situation. I very much recommend this to anyone who is in for a laugh, cry and a feel good movie. Good for any ages.

  17. I loved this movie because Bethany Hamilton is such an inspiration to everyone, she shows that even without an arm you can still do the impossible, this movie is so motivating and amazing.
    My favourite part of the movie was when Bethany figured out how to surf with one arm, I was so happy because she got very sad when she wasn’t able to surf, but once she figured it out she was so happy with herself.
    My favourite character would be Bethany because she was so persistent even when she was in the hospital, she was very positive and she kept trying and didn’t want to give up without trying her hardest.
    I would definitely recommend this movie to someone who loves the ocean and loves to surf, or someone who is looking for inspiration and doesn’t know how to accomplish the impossible. This movie would be for anybody any age or gender, just somebody who might love Bethany and want to see the story behind her life.

  21. I really enjoyed watching Bethany Hamilton’s inspirational movie ‘Soul Surfer.’ It’s about Bethany who is on her way to becoming a professional surfer when she gets attacked by a shark. She gets told that she can’t surf again, but surfing is her passion so with persistence, courage and bravery she is able to start surfing again. This movie is really sad at some times like when her career might have been ended but when she comes back from it makes you happy and fills you with hope that anything is possible and if you’re heart and mind is set on something you can do it. It also makes you feel so lucky and thankful that we have 4 healthy limbs that aren’t missing. I love this movie and would recommend it to anyone ages 9+ just due to the shark scene. I would rate this movie a 7/10.

My favourite character would most definitely be Bethany, I think this because she is so determined and she always pushes herself no matter what. My favourite scene in soul surfer is the part towards the end when Bethany and some others travel to a less fortunate country to help because there was a tsunami. Bethany teaches a little boy to surf and brings the community back together. Over all I really loved this movie and I think its a great movie for anyone to watch.

  41. What an inspirational movie! ‘Soul Surfer’ is based on a true event, involving a world champion surfer, Bethany Hamilton. The story is about Bethany when she was 13, along with her best friend Alana by her side, and they go out surfing on halloween. Bethany was at risk of death when she was attacked by a tiger shark! She was taken to good care and luckily she survived with only the loss of one limb, her arm! Bethany wasn’t going to give up though on her strong passion for surfing. She showed persistence and got back onto her board after lots of brave attempts. She followed her dream and worked for it, even though she was stopped by terrible borders along the way. Bethany teaches others in this story that your dreams can be possible. She showed great determination and courage to continue on with her life and not let even a shark attack get in her way. ‘Soul Surfer’ is a beautiful story and suitable for girls 10+. I highly recommend this book and the movie and rate it 5 stars! Make sure to give it a go!

    I LOVEDDD this movie, it was so inspirational and such a great story line. what made me love this movie even more is that it was a true story. Bethany hamilton is a great person, and i still beleive that she inspires many kids everyday. Yes this movie is still defiantly a hit. When watching this movie, it gives you the biggest adrenaline rush and makes you want to inspire people. Bethany hamilton is still one of my biggest inspirations. My favourite bit of the movie was when she was trying to win a comp, there were no waves coming, she got on her board with 1 arm, and paddled her hardest out far, She then caught this massive wave in and won the competition. This is a huge hit for families please watch it if you havent already.

  43. I really love this movie, it is sad at moments but I really love it. ‘Soul Surfer’ is based on a real girl and her story, a surf-obsessed chic named Bethany who can never get enough of the salty waves until a tragic shark attack concludes in the loss of her arm. She faces the struggles of getting dressed and her dream of being a pro surfer. Acceptance and love for herself is hard and you get to be part of her whole journey all the way. I would recommend this movie for ages 10 and up as the shark scene may be disturbing to younger viewers, and my rating would be 7.5/10 because this is a memorable movie, has a emotional meaning behind it but doesn’t appeal to me as an entertainment purpose film.

She loses her arm in a shark attack while surfing with some friends. She proves that anyone can overcome anything in their life, no matter how big it is. She is so brave and courageous. Surfing was her passion, she keeps persisting until she is able to surf again and she helped little kids in poor countries that were living in poverty and pain. I would recommend this to people of the age of 12 and older because it’s a quite full on movie, but awesome.

    Where do I begin?
    Soul Surfer is probably 1 of the best Movie I have ever watched and read. The book and movie are so great I don’t even know where to start. I’ll start with what the story is based on. The story is a true but very powerful story. The story is about a young girl (17-18) years old and likes surfing her and her friends family all go to a quiet beach and know one else is there, then all of a sudden Bethany gets attacked by a shark and there is a big rush to the hospital and questions if she will live?
    I would highly recommended the book movie to anyone over 9 years old. – I only say 9 years because of the shark attack.

She battles through an unexpected shark attack and looses an arm. Her hope is lost and she faces serious doubt about her career from many people but she seeks the positives which helps her flourish and she achieves her dreams. This movie is inspiring because it shows both sides the positive and the negative and people are able to relate and make connections to there own problems and use her positivity and conclusions to help solve them. Overall this is a really great movie and i would rate it an 8/10.

    I found this movie extremely inspirational. My family and I found our selves watching it every night for a week when we first heard about and I would still happily sit down and watch with you no matter how many times I’ve seen it. Bethany Hamilton became my idol after this movie and I have no doubt it was the same for everybody else when they first saw it too. The movie is based on a true story and it shows you the story of how Bethany Hamilton had her arm bitten off from a shark and still strived and pursued to achieve her dreams. If that doesn’t inspire you or if this does not make her your idol then I honestly don’t know what will. 10/10

  56. I love the movie soul surfer because it is based on a true story. I find it very inspiring because even though she lost her arm, she looked at the positive side and saw that things could be so much worse. My favorite part of the movie was when she went to Thailand where the tsunami hit and she helped so many people get back into the water because they where terrified that the wave was going to come back.
    After she came back from Thailand she told herself “you can do it, you can get back in the water.” That is why I find her so inspirational because even when she lost her arm her internal strength helped her get through it Deep down inside she knew she could and she did, she got back in the water and gave it all that she had.
    I rate this movie 8/10

  57. This movie was one of my favourite I have ever seen. I found it to be an extremely inspiring story and shows that you can adapt to anything that your thrown in life. It is the story of Bethany, a teen surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack. It shows how she overcomes all odds and obstacles in her way through courage and determination. However, along the way Bethany is forced to reconsider her ideas and future and discovers everyone has a greater purpose in life and she has to find hers. My favourite part of this movie is when she rediscovers her purpose in life and takes action to make this happen. I would recommend this book to every teen and I believe it is very relatable. We all face obstacles and challenges in life and we have to rise up to overcome these.

  59. Soul surfer is one of the most inspiring movies I have ever seen, and I know everyone says that, but it truly is. It shows the determination and passion a girl (Bethany) has for surfing after her arm was bitten of in a shark attack. Bethany is faced with so many obstacles before she is able to get back into the water and surf again. This obstacles she faces show how much passion and love she had for surfing. She was motivated and never gave up of her dream to be able to get back into the water and be able to surf like she once did. I rate this movie an easy 10/10 and recommend it for people over 10 only because it’s a bit full on but I think that everyone needs to at least see this movie once because it is such a moving and inspiring movie that will show you how fortunate and how grateful you are to have family and friends who love you unconditionally.

    Soul Surfer is a truly inspirational film following the successful surfer Bethany Hamilton. It follows her journey, through the good times and the bad.

    He story begins with a successful surfing career which turned bad when she lost her arm to a ruthless shark. Bethany did not let her missing limb stop her from pursuing her dream of surfing and from that moment forward she set out to accomplish her life mission, to surf once again.

    This film and Bethany’s story is that of a truly inspirational one filled with wonder, adventure and shows you that no matter what complications or struggles you are faced with, you can always follow your dreams and change the fate of your future.

    I would recommend this film to any body over the age of 9 and for anybody who enjoys watching an inspirational film that teaches you valuable life lessons.

  61. I recommend “Sole Surfer” the movie because it is based on a true story of Bethany Hamilton who is an inspiration. Her story begins when she was surfing one day and lost her arm in a shark attack. From that moment she has to follow her dream and learn how to surf again. It is an inspirational movie, and I love it because it teaches you the message of “when you come back from a loss and you never say never you find a true surfing champion.” Bethany Hamilton is a true surfing legend and this is an inspirational story full of wonder, adventure and teaches you to follow your dreams and never give up. I recommend this movie to ages 9+. It you love an adventure of bravery and courage then this movie is the right one for you. You will love it 😀

  62. Soul Surfer is an amazing movie about a 13 year old girl and her true story. She grew up in Hawaii and was home schooled by her mother, but her main focus at that point in her life was surfing. She grew up surfing and she was amazing at it, and she wasn’t at all prepared to stop, but one day she had to. It was a normal day and Bethany (the main character) was out surfing with her friend Alana and her brother and her dad, when she had a horrible accident. From then on Bethany then had to make about her life much differently, and it was very hard for her. The movie and book is amazing, and it helps to show you what little things that you take for granted make massive impacts on our lives, and you wouldn’t be the same without them. My favorite character was definitely Bethany because even though she struggled through some very tough times, she was able to stand up at the end of the day and she was ok. I would recommend this to anyone 12-13 and up who is looking for an emotional and a little bit scary, but happy storyline.

I love Alana in this movie, she is such a great friend to Bethany and, wants her to do well in her surfing. She is very strong to help Bethany because it would be very hard for Alana to see her friend in such pain and, need.

After the Shark attack that Bethany Faced she never gave up and always wanted to do what she loved. Even though she lost her arm she never gave up. It is a really inspiring movie because one it is a true story so you know it is true but mainly because we are always complaining that stuff is hard at school but Bethany is missing an arm, which makes things harder for her. I overall think this movie is great and recommend it to everyone! It is a fun movie and takes you on a journey along the way of the movie and as events happen.

  70. I recommend the movie called soul surfer (which is also a book), which is about a true story about Bethany Hamilton and how she lost her arm to a shark whilst surfing. In the movie she lives in Hawaii, and has loved to surf since she was very young as her parents and older brothers have surfed their whole lives as well. In summary, her and her best friend, Alana, went surfing in a different spot for the first time. Unexpectedly, a shark comes out from under Bethany’s surfboard and takes her arm, and she is then rushed to hospital. She was very lucky to be alive and now has to try and live life with one arm. She finds it difficult to push herself up on the board whilst surfing, but with heaps of practice, she finds the courage and she tries to surf with one arm. She is my favourite character as she is so inspirational and sometimes I give up on things but she showed me that you should keep trying even when things look impossible. It was a really interesting movie and it is PG, which means that it is suitable with parental guidance, so the whole family can watch it. If you like inspiring, true stories, then this is a perfect movie for you. Great movie, and hopefully sometime I will read her book.

Bethany shows this through the constant support of her family, and she soon is able to get back in the water, learn to surf again and is able to commence competitive surfing once again after extensive training and hard work. The main message shown in the film is that anything can be achieved, as long as you want it bad enough and are willing to persevere and to be determined to achieve it, then it can be achieved. It only has to be possible. The story of Bethany’s life growing up in Hawaii and her unique but amazing way of life is also a major part of the film that makes it so enjoyable to watch.

This movie is based on a true story, about 13 year old Bethany Hamilton, a budding professional surfer, who looses her arm in a tragic shark accident. The movie is all about determination, strength and adversity as Bethany tries to adapt at the new challenge she has been given. But success isn’t easy for Bethany. Surfing with two arms is tricky enough and soon Bethany looses all her confidence and vows that she is never surfing again. After a word changing experience helping in Thailand after the tsunami, Bethany begins to realise how much she loves the ocean and how much it means to her. Her determination is astounding as you watch her battle her disability to own the waves once again. I would rate this amazing true story 10/10 🙂

This movie is based on the horrible event in which Bethany Hamilton an upcoming surfer is bitten by a shark out in the water. She looses one of her arms and a lots of her confidence believing she is no good. She gets really down in the dumps and says she will never surf again and that she isn’t any good. Bethany’s story shows however that with a bit of determination miracles can happen. She starts to believe in herself and works at it until she can surf again. Even without one arm she pushes herself to get better and back to where she was. Although it is initially sad this is such a feel good movie and you will feel such a boost from watching it.

    Soul surfer was ok, it wasn’t the best move of the century but it wasn’t the worst either, I think it just wasn’t my style, i do like the true story part but the actual Bethany Hamilton doesn’t play in it. My favourite part was when she caught the big wave at the competition, but my least favourite part was all the competitions before that because you knew she was going to win and it got extremely boring. My favourite character is the dad because he urges Bethany to keep going with just one arm. I would recommend this book to all those surfers.

    This movie is heart warming and so so inspirational ! It is a true story about a girl named Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm to a shark whilst surfing. She is so courageous, brave and persistent. These qualities are shown when she doesn’t let having only one arm hold her back in any way. She believes that she can do anything with one arm that she could with two. Her family are so supportive and encourage too. Her brothers are there to help here anytime, her mum is too and her dad is especially supportive, and this is shown when he creates a custom made surf board that she can use. But what is most inspirational is that even after being attacked by a shark, she is still brave enough to get back in the water and keep surfing! I would definitely give this movie a 10/10 and recommend it to anyone maybe 5 or 6 +.

    I absolutely adore Bethany Hamilton, I’ve read the soul surfer book and watched the movie. In every scenario, I’ve never read a book then thought the movie was better this situation applies here also. I love the book, read it so many times, Bethany Hamilton is one of my idols, she is the protagonist of this non-fiction novel. I would have liked the movie more if they had used Bethany Hamilton to have played herself, but that actor who played her did very well. Soul Surfer is one of those movies that teaches you to be grateful of the state you are in and not take everything for granted. It taught me courage, responsibility and to never give up. This is a great movie and book and I would definitely recommend.

  112. This movie is the most inspiring movie ever, for someone who lost her arm in a very painfully way and courageously overcame all the hurdles become a champion again, her determination, and her religious background helped her through the tuff times and get her back in the water. Bethany (played by AnnaSophia Robb) was born to surf. A natural talent tat shone through even more when she came back from her recovery and compete in a compition with her best friend Alana Blanchard (Lorraine Nicholson). It is sad to think such a tragic thing happened to such a champion and had her goals set high although she had lost her arm just trying to come to the facts that she will have no arm for the rest of her life but to actually get back in the water and try to surf again proves the fact that she is an even more of an heroin my eyes that she can still get in the water knowing that is likely to happen again. Bethany Hamilton is an amazing role modal and it proves it even more in the movie. It is a great movie and is heartwhelming to everyone that watches it. In my opinion I would give this movie a 9/10.

    Soul surfer is a great movie with a lot of inspiration, it brings tears to peoples eyes but inspiration to them because Bethany Hamilton lost one of her arms due to a shark that bit it off but was very determined to continue on surfing. She did have her ups and down moment but she was persistent continue. She showed a lot of courage when she wanted to get back into the water and start surfing again, a lot of people would have been put off going back into the ocean. Soul Surfer is a movie that shows you if you believe in yourself you can succeed, there will be some bad moments but there will be lots of good ones. A lot of people give up straight away if it’s getting to difficult but Bethany doesn’t she was very determined to get to where she is today. The shark attack can be quite frightening but we have to think about that this was a true story and it did really happen to somebody who when out for a surf with some friends. I would recommend this movie/book to all ages and I give it a 9/10 because she is a great inspiration and role model.

The character is played by Anna-Sophia Robb, who I love and she plays the role really well. Hamilton is a young but very promising surfer. She begins to get known around the place as someone who will go far. One day something terrible happens. When she is out surfing, she is attacked by a shark. Hamilton’s rushed to hospital. She lost her left arm to the shark and is lucky she survived. This incident crushes her. She was to adapt to her new life, and to learning to surf with one arm. But she’s brave enough, skilled enough and determined enough to do it. In the end she wins her comp and beats the bad girl. It shows what hard work can do.

    This can be a feel-good movie in a lot of places and has a good soundtrack but at other times it’s really sad and emotional. I rate it 8/10 and recommend it to people aged 11+ because some scenes can be a bit scary.

I surf as-well so the shark bit in the movie made me even extra cautious. Bethany was my favourite person in the movie because she doesn’t give up no matter what!!! There is nothing to change in “Soul Surfer” because its a brilliant movie.I recommend this movie 10/10 and maybe for the ages of 11 and up because some scenes may scare young children.

    Soul Surfer was such an inspirational film that pulled on the heart strings. As I watched this movie based on Bethany Hamilton who is a pro surfer who was involved in a tragic and horrific shark attack changing her life forever. This movie taught me to be grateful for everything I have and to follow my dreams. I am in love with surfing. I surf and I look up to surfers who devote there lives to following there dreams and believing in there passions, dreams and hopes. This movie changed my perspective. That wave pushed her down, but she picked her self up and found a new and improved wave. Life is a wave, there are ups, downs and average days, but always in the end it is up to you and you are all that can improve your life. There is no telling you what is to come but you have to live your life and don’t take that for advantage because as did Bethany she lost it all but was still determined to live her life and push through the pain. As I said before, I believe this film is so inspirational and has taught me a life lesson. I look up to people like this, they are the ones in life who deserve to live a wonderful life with no pain, but you can not have everything you want. That wave is just around the corner and it won’t stop unless you let it.

  160. This movie is such an inspirational film. It tells the story of Bethany Hamilton, now a Pro Surfer and how she tragically was involved in a shark attack while surfing. It just shows that through the qualities that Bethany shows that by experiencing hardships and adversity makes you more hungry and resilient, in order to achieve your goals. My favourite quote from this movie is ” “I’ve learned life is a lot like surfing. When you get caught in the impact zone, you need to get right back up, because you never know what’s over the next wave……and if you have faith, anything is possible, anything at all.”

    I would definitely rate this movie 10/10 🙂

  161. Soul Surfer is one of my favourite movies ever! My favourite part was probably when Bethany thinks she can never surf again, but then she goes out into the water and she manages to stand up. I thought this was such an amazing movie. It is so inspiring and I love how she never gives up. I felt so sorry for her at times when she felt like giving up, but I loved how in the end she decides to keep going until she can surf again. I have watched this movie so many times that I have lost count and I haven’t got bored at all. There wasn’t any part of this movie that I didn’t like. I would definitely recommend it. Probably to ages 10+. It is such an inspiring, happy and great movie!

    After reading the book I was eager to see the movie but I had doubts whether it was going to be as good as the book and capture the same emotion but I wasn’t disappointed the movie is one to be seen, it shows a true insight on her life and how she overcomes her fears of going back into the water again after the attack. This movie along with the book is truly inspiring and teaches you to face your fears and never give up and bounce back from set backs. My favourite character in the movie besides Bethany is Alana her best friend because she is always thinking what is best for her and always looks out for her and is there to protect her and this movie also shows how she bounces back from the incident because it was quite traumatic on her a swell as Bethany. My favourite part in the movie is when she helps all the poor people that are so less fortunate than she is and is shows her that, yes she doesn’t have two arms anymore but she could be a lot less fortunate than she is and she passes her message on to many other people and touches their hearts.

    The Movie Soul Surfer is an inspiring movie for people who need to get back on there feet and get back into the world it is also a great movie for people who have one arm or leg or anything, The movie inspires you to help people less fortunate than you or us or helps you to get back out there and surf or learn how to surf. Bethany is a great role model for girls. When Bethany is in the shark attack it was very stressful and my heart was beating so fast I could hear it because I just wanted to know if she was alive or did the shark take her under. Then I thought that Alana Blanchard’s dad was a very good role model by taking her in and wrapping the rash vest around Bethany’s arm/shoulder. This movie is a very inspirational movie i recomend it to all ages exept young children aged 0-7 because i dont think they would quite understand what is happening. I love this movie and hope every one in the world gets to watch the movie or read the book. I rate the movie a 10/10 and the book 9/10 because i just really wanted to get intreaved in the book.

    This film Soul Surfer has a lot to taken in but shows a of courage. It is a great movie and is unbelievable what Bethany Hamilton has achieved with so much difficulty. It is very sad but happy and exciting at the same time. I do not know how she got through it at such a young age. She is a role model to all ages out there. It is such a GREAT movie and if you haven’t seen it well you know what you are going to do right now. This movie shows that you can do anything even if you have something that is holding you back if you keep trying you will get there no matter what! It is very scary to thing this is actually is a real story. I wonder how the family would feel? They probably were very scared at the time because they might of thought that she would not have made it. But at the same time they would be so proud that she has got through so much. Any body could watch this I believe because it shows so much inspiration to others.

    This movie is fantastic. It shows true courage and determination. My favourite character would be Bethany because I can just see how hard it would be to have a sport practically ripped form your hands where you have to start over and moderate the way you do it. I can’t imagine what I would do if this happened to me. This is also a connection to my life I can make with this movie. My favourite part of the movie is when the dad has already created a surfboard for her where she can duck dive easier because he knew she couldn’t resist it for much longer. It just showed how much he knew about her. Another favourite part it is when she goes to mexico and teaches the shy little boy to surf, and play in the water. It just made everyone who was deviated smile and I loved it. Probably more because it was based on a true story. My least favourite part of the movie would be when she gives away her three surfboards to the little girls. For just a little while there she gave up the thing she loved because she lost hope in herself. I wouldn’t change anything that happened in this movie only because if something in this movie didn’t happen, then she wouldn’t have made the movie in the first place, wouldn’t be so famous and wouldn’t have shared her story with the word. I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone, but maybe not right before you go to the beach! I would rate this movie an 11/10 and I think it’s fantastics.

    This movie is one of the most inspiration movies i’ve ever seen. I really look up to Bethany Hamilton. It’s incredible how they made Anna look like she didn’t actually have an arm. I know If I was Bethany I would never have the courage to get out into the water again. She is such a strong person and it’s amazing how she learnt to do everything with only one arm. I absolutely love this movie so much

  215. I love the movie soul surfer because I loved how Bethany lost her arm then came back to surfing! that is just so inspirational. I would have to say my favroutie part of the movie is at the end where Bethany comes back to the surf because it shows she never gives up!
    I would have to say my favrouite character would by far be Bethany! obviously because not only is she the main character but because she is a really good surfer, she is really pretty and she stayed strong when she lost her arm! I would have to recommend the movie all people who love to surf or kids over 8 because the scene where Bethany loses her arm is quite sad, I cried myself! I would rate this movie a 9 out of 10! that is how much I loved the movie!!

  216. I loved the movie “Soul Surfer”. Bethany Hamilton was a excellent surfer, until an horrific shark attack, leaving one arm gone. This movie was very inspiring, the fact how Bethany is so courageous and brave, made me love it even more. I couldn’t believe that this movie was based on a true story! Soul Surfer has an great moral: To never give up even though things are bad. Even though this movie is sad at parts, it some how made me happy and inspired. I rate this movie 9/10 and i recommend it to anyone 7+. This movie will always be one of my favourites.

  217. This would have to be one of the most emotional, inspirational movies I have ever seen. Bethany is so strong mentally and physically. She stays true to herself throughout the whole movie and is incredibly determined.
    My favourite part of the whole movie, is between Bethany and her father.
    **
    Bethany’s Dad – ‘This isn’t going to be easy’
    Bethany – ‘I don’t need easy, I just need possible.’
    **
    These two lines alone show true character, strength and determination. Bethany loves surfing, and despite a freak accident, she finds resilience, and despite the odds – achieves her dream.
    Bethany is an incredible girl and role model. I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. It reminds us that when everything seems dark, we can find the light.

    Soul Surfer is an amazing story about a young christian girl who was attack by a shark in Hawaii. With her whole arm gone she has to learn new ways of doing things and has to cope with the situations that she can not do.

It made me realise that all of the little things that i complain about are nothing compared to what some people go through. After i watched the movie i also tried doing things with one arm just to see how I’d cope in her situation and it was so hard! I couldn’t even imagine the hardships that she has had to face. Everything changed when she lost her arm, including her self esteem. I would recommend this movie to anyone that doesn’t mind shedding a slight tear and is over the age of 10. As gross as it was, my favourite part was actually the shark attack 🙂

  231. This movie/book is very inspiring. Bethany is a inspiring person, knowing that having lost an arm will be a big change in her life, she still persists to be a professional surfer and do the things she did with her arm. Her life changes a lot after her accident and her family help her and encourages her to do the things she wants to. This book tells us that anything is possible if you just try. Whatever your dream may be, if you try hard to achieve it, it will come true .. I rate this book a 10 | 10 and I recommend it to everyone.

  234. Soul Surfer the movie is the best movie but it is a bit sad at times.It is about a girl called Bethany Hamilton and she loves surfing with her friend.Then She goes Night surfing with her friends and dad and there are fireworks. The next day, She goes surfing with her brother, her best friend and her dad. Then A shark comes from under neath and bites off her left arm. She loses a lot of blood and she was close to dying until her brother finds a rock and breaks into their car and calls the ambulance. The Ambulance comes and takes Bethany to the Emergency room in the Hospital. My Favourite part of the movie is when Bethany comes back from an shark bite that nearly killed he but she bounces back from it and comes second in the National surfing championship and it just moves me. My favourite character in the movie is of course, Bethany because she got nearly killed by a shark but her personality and good sense of humour kept her alive. With her support of her family and friends, that’s how she came second in the surfing competition that’s why she is my favourite character in the best movie in the world.

    I would recommend this awesome movie to anyone who likes surfing and likes true stories. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone so Start watching this movie, trust me, it’s the best movie you will ever watch in your life.

Bethany is such a strong, determined character, and she is what makes the movie so amazing. Her family members are always by her side, pushing her through the ups and downs of her journey. Through out the movie I couldn’t help feel that Bethanys friend weren’t there for her as much as they should’ve been, but in the end, Bethany shows the support she had was more than enough to get her through. I would recommend this movie to anyone older than around twelve, who loves a heartfelt, inspiring movie. Defiantly a good watch!

    Soul surfer is one of my favourite movies ever! My favourite part was when bethany thought that she couldn’t ever surf again, but then when she went out in the water, she stood up. It made me so emotional because she believed in herself that she could surf again, and she did. I have watched the movie 5 times now and haven’t got bored at all. Something that I think that the author or director could improve in the movie, was that when the shark bit Bethany, it wasn’t realistic at all. Maybe they could try to make it be a little bit more realistic so that it keeps us interested. Besides that little part, I thought that the movie Soul Surfer was absolutely fantastic. I rate it a 10/10 because it was soooo good. I would recommend this for ages 11+ because I know someone who was 9 and didn’t get the movie at all. Great movie defiantly should watch it!

Bethany is a girl who had a love of surfing. She lived in Hawaii, and would always go surfing of exquisite reefs and white beaches. But one day she and her best friend went surfing in what they thought would be an experience of a lifetime. It turned out in a different situation, after Bethany almost dies after a shark take her arm. She was then rushed to the hospital where she was treated for the incident. From there on she now had to try and live a life with one arm. This movie is an inspirational story about strength and never giving up. This has giving me moderation, and shows that with practice we can achieve anything.

    Before seeing this movie, i had no idea who Bethany Hamilton was, but now she is one of my biggest inspirations! My favourite part of the movie was when Bethany and Sarah are having a conversation and Bethany cries for the first time after the accident. I love how bethany is so determined to become a professional surfer despite her disadvantage, and finds ways (with some support from the people around her) to pursue that dream. I am so jealous of the lives of those in the movie, they get home schooled and get to go to the beach everyday. My favourite character in the movie was Alana Blanchard because she was the character that i could relate to most, she is so supporting of Bethany and I loved how she was in the movie because i had heard of her before and i got kind of excited when I found out she was going to be part of the movie. I also really like this movie because bethany is played by one of my favourite actresses (Anna-Sophia Robb) and i think that she did a fantastic job of it. The part that i disliked the most was when Bethany got attacked by the shark, but i wouldn’t take that part out of course, but it just made my heart race and i went into panic mode even though i wasn’t actually there.

  254. This movie is a pretty good one; it has a great cast of Anna-Sophia Robb, Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt; a great story line built up with suspense; and a great moral – Don’t let any obstacle stand in your way, whether is it physical, mental, or emotional. Every single scene of this movie is enjoyable, and very built up to one single event, which changes the story in nearly an unimaginable way. The way that Bethany Hamilton (Anna-Sophia Robb) pulls through this disability is incredible to watch, and the fact that it is based on a true story is even more amazing. Even after watching this movie several times, I would still rate it 10 out of 10 stars, but recommend it to the ages of 10 and up, because of some frightening scenes.

    Just another ordinary day carving it up out in the waves when a shark comes along and bits her whole arm off. Soul Surfer is the most inspirational story I have ever seen. Bethany Hamilton is a fighter and would not be surfing today if I wasn’t for her determination and God in her heart. Growing up in a christian family Bethany had the strength to push through that hard time. This movies makes you wonder how lucky you are to have two arms. Imagine only having one arm, you would hardly be able to do anything but Bethany was strong and persisted on. Because of her strength Bethany was able to fight back and become the professional surfer that she always wanted to be. I would rate this 100/10.

    Soul surfer is a really touching movie that makes you think how lucky you are and to believe no matter what. it is about a girl who is a surfer and gets her arm bitten off and then her life story on from then. it really is an amazing movie and i could watch it over and over again. with this movie you always want to know what will happen next and if she will give up but you just know that she wont because she is so determined. i would rate this movie 10/0 because i loge the story line and how she just never gave up and especially after what happened because most people complain over little things but Bethany just thought that there were other people with worse things then her so she never gave up i would rate the audience for 11+

    Soul surfer is such an amazing and inspiring story about Bethany hamilton. Its a true stroy about a girl who loosed her arm in a shark attack one morning while she is surfing. With just one arm Bethany overcomes difficult challenges to build up strength in her arm so she can surf again. I think it is so amazing how bethany works so hard to achieve her goals and it really inspires you to go and try your best at everything you do even if the odds are against you. I would rate this movie 9/10 and would recommend it to people 11+ in age because their are mature themes and some scary parts. 🙂

  264. This is such a great movie! Bethany Hamilton is a true surfer chick ever since she was small. When she is at the top of her career she loses her arm to a shark while surfing at the reef with her friends. She finds it extremely hard to get back to surfing but she keeps on trying! finally she learns and trains to get out the back with a handy capped surf board and comes second against the selfish Melina! I find this movie so inspiring!

    Soul Surfer is an true, inspiring story about a girl, Bethany Hamilton, on her way to becoming a pro surfer but, loses her arm to a shark while out surfing with her best friend. Although she now has just one arm, and she finds some things more difficult, she doesn’t give up especially when it comes to surfing. While she tries to regain her skills for surfing she also wonders how her accident was apart of gods plans. A friend once told her, ‘For i know the plans I have for you, says the lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope, and a future.’ As Bethany becomes stronger as a person, will her surfing become stronger too? I rate this 5/5 and I recommend this movie for ages 10 and up. If your ever feeling down and you feel like you can’t get back up, this is a great movie to watch, as it inspires you to never give up and to remember, if Bethany can do it, so can you.

  266. I recommend this movie called soul surfer (which is also a book), a true story about Bethany Hamilton and the tragic accident as she lost arm whilst surfing. Bethany is a girl who had been surfing since she was little, and now that she was older, she would enter surf competitions all the time. She lived in Hawaii, and one day she and her best friend went surfing in a different spot. As they were in the water talking, unexpectedly, a shark comes out from under Bethany’s surfboard and takes her arm. She is then rushed to hospital. She was very lucky to be alive and now has to try and live life with one arm. She then finds that she can’t surf anymore, due to her finding it difficult to push herself up on the board whilst surfing. But with heaps of practice, she finds the faith within herself, and she tries to surf again. Maybe it isn’t the same surfing with one arm, but she shows the world that no matter what, if you set your mind to something, you can always achieve it. S he is great role-model to people all around the world, and she inspires everyone that anything is possible.
    Before watching soul surfer, I guess if I was no good at something, I’d try, but if I didn’t get anywhere, I would give up. But now she’s inspired me that anything is possible if set your mind to it, and now, no matter what I fail at, I know that with practice, I can achieve anything.
    I rate this movie a 9/10 because it was really interesting movie and it is PG, which means that it is suitable with parental guidance. If you like inspiring, true stories, then this is a perfect movie for you. I guarantee that anyone who watches it will love it, and I hope that Bethany Hamilton inspires you as much as she inspired me

    Here is a trailer of the movie:

    My friend got me this movie for my birthday about a week ago and i think i have watched it 5 times already! It is my favorite movie and I really really really love it!!! I think they put the movie together really well and captured Bethany Hamilton’s story really well. I think i speak for everyone that once you watch this you get pretty inspired and want to watch it over and over again! Anna Sophia-Robb who plays Bethany does a really good job in playing lead role and she makes you think that she is actually Bethany herself! All the characters do a really good job as well! Soul Surfer is the best movie ever!

    This is one of my favourite movies ever. It is sooo inspirational even though I don’t personally surf, it shows the courage of a girl and how she doesn’t let anything bring her down. And to top it all off, it’s based on a true story.

    The movie is about Bethany Hamilton and how she goes surfing one day and a victim of a shark attack. She and her family live, breath and sleep surfing. With one arm Bethany feels that her life is over until she grows the courage to train and become strong enough to surf with one arm. She overcomes amazing challenges and is an inspirational character.
    I rate this 10/10

    I loved Soul Surfer it was the best movie ever. It inspired me quite a lot to go for what you dream. Bethany Hamilton is a brilliant surfer. My Favorite part of the movie of the movie is the part is when she gets back in the water and I loved it. The sadest part of the movie is when Bethany’s arm is bitten of by a shark and they are at the hospital and her mum and dad are very worried. My favorite Character of the movie is Bethany because it is her story and she loves to show her surfing tricks of which i think is so cool. I would definitely recommend this movie because it is so inspirational and has a message which is got for what you dream.

    I think this was the most insparational movie I have ever seen. Not only is it an entertaining movie and enjoyable to watch, It was also moving and informative about the dangers of surfing (sharks). But I didn’t get the wrong message about shark attacks from the movie (my father is now scared of due to the fact that he watched Jaws as a child). I Beleive that If you trully love something as Bethany Hamilton loves surfing nothing even a setback as big as losing a major ligamont can stop you doing what you love. Bethany Hamilton has all the qualities that a true champion is made of.. Courage, Passion, Determination and Love. Bethany Hamilton was my favourite character in the movie. (of course), But I also admired Alana Blanchard. She also showed bravery (yes she was there when the attack actually happened) and Alana was also a friend in need when Bethany needed her most. Bethany Hamilton showed great faith in God and I thought that was good. ‘When you come back after a loss and beat all the odds you find a true champion’ Bethany Hamilton is an amazing role model and the movie just promotes how amazing she is.. That Is a good thing. I rate this movie 100/10 if that is possible…. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Soul Surfer IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!!! I have looked up to Bethany ever since I was 9, in fact she was the one who got me to surf. So seeing the movie was a MUST. I have actually seen it two times and I still don’t get sick of. Its an amazing story about never giving up and fight back. Bethany Hamilton was an amazing surfer who was on top of everything, then one fateful halloween morning changed it all. Bethany lost her arm in a shark attack. This is a story that will have you on the edge of your seat. Its so inspirational and its based on a TRUE story!!!!!! I give it a 10/10 and recommend to all people especially surfers because they will understand how hard it would have been.
