Had a terrible experience... The sound kept glitching and the screen would freeze. There was a family behind me of extremely talkative kids and mom; the kids kept running and jumping around... That being said, I think the movie would be pretty cool to watch at home. The intro was a little long and because of all glitches and commotion behind me it was hard to get into the slow introduction. But once it comes out on DVD it may be worth another chance.

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.

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.

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!

AWesome! Fantastic! Great surfing. I surfed Pipeline many years ago & it brought back great memories of when I lived in Hawaii & surfed. This is a great movie to collect. I just lived through Superstorm SANDY & was traumatized for 5 months afterwards. I have never been afraid of the ocean until after Sandy. But now that I have seen the movie & it brought back my love of surfing & the ocean, I can understand why I didn't evacuate when Sandy hit my neighborhood. The photography & music in the film were great. It explained the orgins of surfing & the history of Hawaii which many don't know. I'd see it agin if it were playing in Brooklyn. It's a movie to see a few times! It would be enjoyed by any age. Makes you want to get on a plane & fly out to L.A. & then Hawaii.
