Great movie! Both thrilling and a life story. (by sanwelch2004)
This movie was great - The filming of of the huge waves, surfers, and conditions was fantastic. I found it a beautiful story of people, the challenge of relationships, mixed with the thrill of surfing, and the athletic abilities required for the champions.From the heart, this is a true story of a young man, Jay Jonny Weston , who in spite of many things against him, manages to make his dream come true based on hard work. It is also the story of another man, Frosty Gerard Butler, who has his own personal challenges, comes to terms with some of those, and builds a relationship with a young <more>
man who needs a father. I was particularly impressed by Brenda Abigail Spencer , Frosty's wife, who simply loved him. Maybe a strange statement, but when you see the film, you will understand.Definitely worth seeing!
Chasing Mavericks: A way to reconnect with your soul (by Soroush_Jozani)
If you want to watch a movie with a fresh point of view on the world and enjoy every minute of it, I highly recommend watching Chasing Mavericks. Chasing Mavericks is the type of movie that will make you feel alive. Not only me, but many of the other people watching it in the theater were so moved that you would actually they would move with the waves in the movie. The movie approaches the theme of love, family and freedom in a very natural way; something that we rarely see in any other movies of this decade. It's very inspirational and motivating, yet it's very real and natural, so <more>
you get inspired without being lectured. My hat's off to the person who first came up with the idea of having Gerard Butler play the role of Frosty, because no other actor could pull it off so perfectly. Butler's character is a mentor, father figure and yet, he does seem larger than life, a character that I can call Poseidon, the god of the seas. Aside from that, this is one of those rare movies that resonates father and son relationship, which is really good to see for a change. Grown men, including me, were actually crying when they watched some emotional scenes and this rarely happens. I highly recommend this movie to everyone who wants to reconnect with their emotions and thoughts.
It had amazing character relationships and determination to do what you really want to achieve. It made me laugh it made me cry, and most of all it made me inspired. I'm a surfer in general and the story of the main character Jay and the reality of the Maverick waves look it up, they actually do have competitions to surf the waves that are 50 feet high is just all the move exciting. It's a must see and take the kids, there are some kissing scenes, but they are brief and not graphic. No swearing or anything. Go and learn some awesome life lessons on the pretty much 100% accurate <more>
true story. If you look up info about Jay, the real jay you will find that pretty much same story. Very inspirational movie. Go watch it!
I went and saw this after reading many unfavorable reviews, and now having seen it I can't figure out all the negative attention. Granted, I may be a little biased having grown up surfing in Northern CA, paddling out at many of those spots, and looking up to the big wave chargers such as Jay, but based on entertainment value alone I thought it was great. The acting was solid, footage was incredible, and story never dragged on or lost my attention. The film portrayed a reasonably realistic vibe of Santa Cruz as a high school kid and the often not discussed elements of surfing. I thought it <more>
was great that they were able to bring in the real pioneers of Mavs and local shapers.The only down-check was that it did feel slightly 'karate-kidish' at times and there were a few events that would be incredibly rare that all seemed to happen at opportune moments.Perhaps this movie won't appeal as much to many who don't have a passion for the sport or appreciate the massive undertaking of paddling out in heavy surf - but I found it very entertaining. The story may not have been 100% accurate, but the point is to pay respect to and tell the story of an extremely driven and all around good guy.
Every surfer will appreciate this film. Powerful! (by shannonquirk)
Fear is real. Even big wave surfers are scared of something. "Chasing Mavericks" legitimizes the raw strength of the ocean's largest source of energy. A close relationship to both the surf in Northern California's Pacific and to the man who trains him how to survive its largest beast, this big wave film highlights some of the most interesting parts of big wave surfing psychology. Fear, love, loss... and finding a balance amidst it all. Drop into theaters to see Maverick's on the big screen - that should be reason enough. Period.-Shannon Marie Quirk, Editor of <more>

For the life of me I don't know why it has a low review-- it's an amazing surfing movie. Heck, I'm not even a surfer and went into this very critical I rarely go to sporty movies / inspirational flicks .It's based on a TRUE story, has fantastic footage of surfing after viewing how-to's I am now amazed at how they pulled this off , & features superb acting. If you're looking for some ridiculous explosions, sex, and nonsensical action prepare to be impressed with something deeper. I loved how they didn't go with the norm simply to satisfy the masses.This is a <more>
down-to-earth flick for people who are looking for something that really hits home and I would go spend $11 to re-watch this.
When I was fifteen, I used to love listening to the beach boys with my headphones on, cutting out the rest of the world. One of my favourite songs was "In my Room" by Brian Wilson. Chasing Mavericks deals with people coming to terms with massive gaps in their lives but somehow focusing on something bigger than themselves to pull through. If you love surfing or the ocean, this movie is for you. Mavericks was brought to world wide attention with Stacey Peralta's film "Riding Giants". Jay has lost his father early in life, and has to act as a pseudo parent for his mother <more>
who suffers from the breakup. He accidentally discovers that his much older neighbour Frosty is a big wave surfer and so a teacher mentor relationship starts. Frosty, as well, has terrible father issues which continue to plague him. Their relationship develops momentum and gives each of them energy and purpose. The film underlines the choices we can make in life. Everyone has scars and issues to deal with. Do we give up and spiral downwards or do we set big goals waves and go after them. Jay plans carefully in his room to conquer his fears and reach his goal. Excellent and heartfelt acting.
This enjoyable movie is recommended, especially for those who love surfing and the sea.It tells the true story of Jay Moriarity played by Jonny Weston , a young Santa Cruz surfer who conquered Mavericks during El Nino, one of the highest waves in the world. The heart of the movie is the relationship between him and his father-figure and surfing mentor, Frosty Hesson played by Gerard Butler . Jay has no father, but he's a good kid a real winner, actually and he latches onto Frosty. We follow Jay as he learns some of Frosty's rules of life and applies them to accomplish this <more>
incredible feat at the age of 16.Frosty's rules of life, and intense training routine, seemed rather bang on to me. This is the kind of thing that moulds young winners. It explains why Jay was able to conquer Mavericks. I accept the movie's moral: "live like Jay".I enjoyed the scenes showing surfing and surfing life. I identified strongly with young Jay's struggles with his family and friends, and with his drive unusual for a kid his age to do this amazing and dangerous thing. This is a coming-of-age story that spoke to me. This is by no means a perfect movie, but its downsides are relatively minor. The movie has a slight after-school-special quality. It's a movie completely acceptable for kids. Parents should be forcing their kids to see this one.For me, one issue is that Jonny Weston was too old to play a 16 year old. He has a young-looking face, but when he took his shirt off you could see he was at least 5 years older than that. However, apart from that, he was perfectly cast and played his role excellently.At the end of the film, we find out that Jay died in 2001 at the age of 22. This also explains why Jay is portrayed as such a beautiful and perfect kid, struggling with the imperfect people around him. The movie is a sort of eulogy to him. After watching the movie, Jay's death does feel like a huge loss.Once again, a score on IMDb just seems inexplicably wrong to me. The few reviews so far are positive, but the scores apparently are not. The moviegoers voting this movie down are not writing reviews to explain their voting.There is nothing wrong at all with this slightly sappy movie about a young hero. It's a fine movie that deserves better ratings.
Why is it one of the best movies this year? Inspirational message - Overcome your fears by identifying them first. Fear is good, panic is bad. Anything is possible with discipline, dedication and hard work. Even in the most difficult of circumstances, if you try hard enough or look past the waves , you can find a solution. So all in all, Chasing Mavericks is a positive, spirit-lifting movie. The movie is based on a true story, which makes these positive messages more relevant and applicable.Entertaining movie – There were some sad moments, some happy moments, but the whole time, everything <more>
was very engrossing and entertaining. After watching some movies, you don't want to think about them, because the negativity or sadness in them is too deeply scarring or the message is too emotionally challenging.In Chasing Mavericks, you are left with the same kind of message sometimes when you test your limits, the limits test you , without the emotional scarring and disturbing imagery or strange questions in your mind, like what did that mean or did they have to show it in that way? Instead, you feel like both your time and money were well spent on watching the movie, and you receive all these positive messages of hope and the inspiration to overcome challenges in your life. Simultaneously, an admiration for the extreme sport lifestyle, especially scuba diving and surfing, is also kindled.Good overall execution – great acting by Gerard Butler, the lady who plays his wife and the protagonist. Gerard Butler looked the part from his skin tone, physique, personality and style - clothing and hairstyle. The movie felt like it was true to the era it was depicting I think so anyways . The protagonist looked believable as the character he was playing. If this kid can play a different perhaps negative role and be believable in that, he may be one of the greats.
