Surfs Up in 3D – Review

Léo Azambuja reviews Storm Surfers 3D for The Garden Island

LIHU‘E — Storm Surfers in 3D will open this week at Kukui Grove Cinema in Lihu‘e.

State-of-the-art miniature 3D cameras put the audience inside the barrel for a “visually stunning cinematic adventure unlike any other,” according to film promoters.

“Combining cutting-edge 3D technology and bravura filmmaking, Storm Surfers 3D is the ultimate big-wave thrill ride,” states the movie’s promotional material.

Filmmakers follow legendary Aussie surfers Tom Carroll, 51, and Ross Clarke-Jones, 44, as they chase storms in their quest to ride the Pacific Ocean’s biggest and most dangerous waves, with the help of surf forecaster Ben Matson.

“Braving enormous waves, freezing conditions and near-death experiences, the film follows all of Ross, Tom and Ben’s adventures over the 2011 winter big-wave season,” states the International Movie Database.
