Chasing Mavericks

BluRay Authority
15 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Of all the sports out there, I’m not sure if I could handle being a surfer.  Not so much due to the nature of the sport itself, I’m actually pretty coordinated (I used to play ice hockey), but mainly because of what lies below the surface of the water.

  • Summary: Some may see this and just roll their eyes thinking it’s just some other surfing movie, or some random feel-good movie.  This film has it all, from a solid script, great acting, direction, cinematography, sound track….I bet they even had amazing craft services on set.

Chasing Mavericks

High-Def Digest
5 March 2013
  • Conclusion: 'Chasing Mavericks' brings a visceral surfing twist to the tried-and-true ' Karate Kid ' formula. Its plot is thin, predictable, and a little flat, but Jay Moriarity's story is definitely worthwhile, and the filmmakers offer a reasonably entertaining experience.

Chasing Mavericks Review

DoBlu
4 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Chasing Mavericks has a villain. As a young kid, he is seen walking down the pier smashing rear view mirrors with a baseball bat. Flash forward seven years, that kid is now a ’90s teen, still sitting on the pier threatening people with the same bat. That’s not much character growth.

  • Summary: Based on the true story of Jay Moriarity, this surfing movie is about more than just the waves, but it's unclear what that is.

“Chasing Mavericks” Review

Informer Media Group
26 October 2012
  • Excerpt: How could a film be marketed as an ”inspirational true story” when the surfing phenom-legend Jay dies in 2001 at age 22 after drowning while “free diving” in the Maldives? Free-diving is incredibly dangerous.* His reckless lifestyle ended at 22!

Chasing Mavericks

Cinema Blend
26 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Sports movies almost always work better when there’s a clear enemy. Miracle has the Soviets. Happy Gilmore has Shooter McGavin. Caddyshack has Judge Smails, and Chasing Mavericks should have a huge, deadly wave.

Variety
25 October 2012
  • Summary: The outstanding big-wave footage proves more credible than the overfamiliar dramatics in "Chasing Mavericks," an earnest account of how Jay Moriarity became a Northern California teen surfing legend before his diving-accident death at age 22.
