Blue Crush [DVD] [Widescreen]
Region 1 USA/CA (
Set among the white beaches and thunderous waves of Hawaii's North Shore, BLUE CRUSH is an adrenaline-drenched surf picture that boasts a star-making performance from Kate Bosworth. Bosworth is Anne Marie, a determined surfer who shares a beachside shack with her best friends Eden (Michelle Rodriguez) and Lena (Sanoe Lake), and younger sister Penny (Mika Boorem). Just days away from the infamous Rip Masters surfing contest, Anne Marie's life is thrown into turmoil. After being fired from her housekeeping job at a luxury resort hotel, she is courted by the hunky NFL quarterback Matt Tollman (Matthew Davis). As she tries to contain the wild emotions that are threatening to overwhelm her, Anne Marie tries to come to terms with a surfing accident from her past that nearly killed her. In order to survive the contest's deadly, crushing waves, Anne Marie must reach deep within herself to find the courage necessary to come out on top. With BLUE CRUSH, director John Stockwell gives the audience what they want: bikinis, music, romance, and surfing. His picture is graced with David Hennings' gorgeous photography, which captures the beauty and the excitement of the immensely popular sport.

"...Bosworth is a star in the making....[The surf footage] is flat-out spectacular..."
"...It cuts to the core of what it actually means to face your fears and to ride the big metaphorical wave that is life....The energy is palpable..."
"...[Bosworth] projects radiance, delicacy, uncertainty and inner strength....There's an undeniable sexiness to both the cast and the surf..."
"...[With] an endearing unpretentious tone..."
"...Kate Bosworth's central performance combines conventional 'movie-star' looks, athletic prowess and a winning sense of determination..."
