Drifting in a sea of blandness...

SHH!! If you listen very closely... You can hear the cogs of the screenplay turn, as our cardboard characters bluster their way through predictable confrontations, obvious story developments and easily anticipated 'twists'. From the first minute, when a mother abandons her drunken loser of a husband with her two sons, and one of them kicks him in the chest as they escape in their car, it's all plastic Hollywood construct... Despite being an Australian production, and the disclaimer 'based on a true story' notwithstanding.

Yes, as you'd expect there's loads of top footage of professional surfers doing their 'thing', with waves crashing and gravity-defying stunts aplenty for the connoisseur. But you can see that kind of spectacle in a documentary on the subject. It is REALLY worth wading through this murky plot, including a tacked on romance, stereotypical hippy culture and the most one dimensional bad guys EVER? I would suggest not.

Gnarly surfing, man. Shame the rest is so bogus. 4/10

I'm sure surf and sports fans will enjoy the film more.

'DRIFT': Three Stars (Out of Five)

Surf movie set in the 1970s about two brothers trying to start a successful surf shop at the high point of the sport's business. It stars Myles Pollard, Xavier Samuel, Sam Worthington and the beautiful Lesley-Ann Brandt (who bares a striking resemblance to Halle Berry). It was directed by Ben Nott and Morgan O'Neill and written by O'Neill and Tim Duffy. I found the film to be mildly amusing but I think surfers (and surf movie fans) will get more of a kick out of it.

Pollard (who also produced the flick) stars as Andy Kelly and Samuel plays his brother Jimmy; two brothers who fled their abusive father, with their mom (Robyn Malcolm), when they were kids. They moved to a coastal town (in Australia) and became obsessed with surfing. When they're much older (in the 70s) they try to avoid a life of crime and start a surf shop; selling wetsuits and boards (out of their garage). They meet JB (Worthington, who was a Drama school classmate of Pollard's) and his friend Lani (Brandt) who come into town and become business associates of the brothers.

The movie has some decent surfing scenes and beautiful visuals but the characters aren't quite as developed or relatable as I like in a character-driven drama film. The surf scenes are kind of cool and exciting but they are few and far between. I did really enjoy Worthington's character though and all of the acting is decent in the movie. Like I said I'm sure surf and sports fans will enjoy the film more but I found it to be merely decent.

Excellent wave shots, easy going story

Big surf, cool 70's vibe. Give this movie a chance, make popcorn and have a beer. Excellent surf photography, beautiful, rough coastline of Australia. You will enjoy this film if you remember the big boards and OP board shorts. Goes slow but gets better just like the waves!. There are great scenes where old style cameras and wetsuits are used. The actors are good, you will recognize one of the actors from the film 'Clash of the Titans'! The plot could use some help but the feel of the film is very hippie style. There is a few drug scenes but they didn't mess that up too bad. The surfing is definitely the best. Real pros in every scene with old boards used for the film to keep it true to the time. Enjoy dude!
