John & Becky’s Movie Review of Chasing Mavericks

Becky and I went to see the new movie Chasing Mavericks on opening night at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO.  The Fandango website at Chasing Mavericks describes the movie as follows…

“When 15-year-old surfing phenomenon Jay Moriarty (Jonny Weston) discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, actually exists near his California home, he becomes determined to conquer it. Jay enlists the aid of local surfing legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) to train him to ride the Mavericks and live to tell about it. As Jay and Frosty carry on their quest to achieve the impossible, they develop a unique friendship that transforms both their lives…”

The Review: Chasing Mavericks is about a 15 year old kid living in California who lives with his single Mom and has a passion for surfing.  This movie is based on a true story, which makes it very interesting and exciting to watch.  He has a neighbor take him under his wing to train him how to become a better surfer and he learns that his Mentor is one of the few people in the world surfing Mavericks.  Mavericks is a mythical place that nobody believes exists in California, until the kid learns that it’s for real.

This is a great movie!  I’m amazed it hasn’t done very well at the box office, but it’s a really entertaining and moving story.  The training and danger that this young kid had to go through to surf these giant bone crushing waves was incredible.  This is a very inspiring film about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, while living life to the fullest and pursuing your dreams.  It also shows the challenges and obstacles that we face in life and how we respond to life when it hits us like a ton of bricks with circumstances that our out of our control.  It proves once again that is attitude is truly everything!

Becky and I both really enjoyed this movie and it’s definitely a Don’t Miss It.
