Publicity freaks at it again. Most of the shots are zoomed in way too close. Life is not a fashion show. I don't need to see your master's logos. I want to see the wave. And nobody cares about the twirly bird somersault thing anymore. These guys should run off and join the circus. Lots of nice barrels, though. The landscape scenery and music are great.

3.0 out of 5 starsGreat surf film but not quite what I expected.
Great surf film but not quite what I expected. As a novice cold water surfer, I had been waiting patiently for quite some time to see the Seawolf. Visually stunning and worth a view.

I would say the #1 thing that bumps me is the score and lack of sound design. I heard an interview with the director in which he stated he didn't have the budget for a soundtrack so he scored the movie himself. You can disagree, but I'm just not digging the songs that accompany the visuals. Most of it just sounds like that chill lounge music you'd hear in a swanky overpriced NYC cocktail lounge. Nothing seems to match the aggression we're seeing on screen. The fact that in the credits it says the songs don't have names, only numbers (and screw it) drives my point home. I'm a tough customer though...i can't stand those early 2000s surf films where the soundtrack was pop punk. (which is 100X worse)

A previous review stated that it was mostly close-up shots. DISAGREE. There are plenty of wide-out beautiful tracking shots and they go for quite some time. Quite mesmerizing. But I do agree with the thoughts on the flip tricks. Don't need to see 'em, especially when they're bails.

FYI, I downloaded it and transferred to a USB stick to play on my smart TV. Looks AMAZING.

5.0 out of 5 starsVisually stunning.
Have to disagree with one reviewer. 'Music' is so often one of the most annoying things about surf movies but I found the soundtrack to Sea Wolf actually enjoyable and perfectly synchronized to the mood of the visuals.
Visually stunning. Incredible photography, loved it!
