Some really great surfing once you get over the "testing new filming methods".
Pros: Great surfing, great waves, great scenery and such
Cons: Way too long of the filming-process and detail of gadgetry... Technically,
the film is: "Inside Teahupoo", so... that's what you get... a bunch of
dudes trying to get this perfect action-shot using under-developed tech.
Still give it four-stars because it's beautifully shot and has some great scenes.
I'm a tech-guy, so I understand the process of developing some new tech that has
too many problems to start with, but I'd have thought it would've been worked out
before the film got to rolling. Surfers know how to make the best of anything on
good waves, and it's worth it to check out their style.
It's a great flick, but... if you're looking for Laird-style stuff... this ain't it.
