I WOULD NOT WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT ON DVD. THE SOUNDTRACK AND THE PHOTOGRAPHY IS BRILLIANT AND NEEDS TO BE SEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN. JACK IS SUCH A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER. ALL AGES WILL LOVE THIS FILM.

Not being a surfer myself but my husband is, we went in support of the film maker, etc. My husband a lover of all things surf, really enjoyed the movie and got the concept of it. He has studied the timelines and origins of surf and all it encompasses and thought that Jack McCoy did a great job at that. The music for the most part was pretty good. The photography, especially the underwater shots were fantastic. If you're a lover of surf and surf movies, how can you not go and like it!

First issue was the time spent in the beginning with the film maker. Spent 30 minutes showing scenes from the premier in HI and chit chatting with some of the film 'stars'. Poor interviews, poor editing, poor use of my time. The film itself was just OK for a surf movie. It was more a movie to star his buddies rather than a surf documentary that it was sold to be. Soundtrack was great but not available online and the website gives the bands, but not the song names. So the artists are going to lose out on additional exposure and revenue.

shockingly academic, dry channel 13 style presentation. when the monotone anchorman narration clicked in i knew we were in real trouble. self congratulatory opening proved unjustified. a few momemts, some nice historical tidbits, but mostly felt rehashed. made me nostalgic for his old flicks tubular swells and stormriders.

A fantastic film that shares the roots, soul, and passion of surfing’s beginning in Hawaii and how it brought aloha to the world. Even if you’ve never been to the ocean, A Deeper Shade Of Blue will inspire you to capture the high that surfers feel once they ride a wave. The film gives us an intimate look of the Hawaiians legends through amazing cinematography and personal stories told by people who have been inspired by this sport and lifestyle. Jack McCoy, is the director and a master surf filmmaker. This is his biggest and best film to date, with a great soundtrack by Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Sir Paul McCartney and Kaukahi with Jack Johnson. A Deeper Shade Of Blue will make you stoked that summer is on its way. Aloha!
