Movie Review: Soul Surfer

I have heard several people give great review for the movie Soul Surfer; I rented it from Redbox, along with another movie for my husband.

I don't know what I was thinking before I got the movie, because I was surprised by all the skin and bikinis showing.  Our family does not participate in "mixed swimming" and do not believe in dressing immodestly.  This was a definite concern of mine.  The other concern was the music, some of it worldly, so-called Christian music.  I had to mute the sound a number of times so as not to listen to the music.

Aside from those two deviations from our personal convictions, the story was a good one.  The girl showed a lot of courage in the face of adversity and great determination in going after her dream.  (Not a dream that we would hold up in high regard to our daughter, by the way.)

Overall, if you share the same convictions that I do, you probably would not want to watch this movie.
Pin It!


  1. Thank you for this! My husband shared with me that even a one second glance at a scantily clad women can cause stirrings in a man. He already has to be on guard just to go to the store, why would I want to bring it into our home? I try to be very careful about movies. I won't be getting this one!

  2. I'm laughing at myself right now. I need to take the Amazon link off of this movie.
