Soul Surfer tells the true story of Bethany Hamilton, a champion youth surfer from Hawaii who, while out on an early morning surf with her best friend, had her life forever changed when her left arm was bitten off by a tiger shark - she was just 13 years old at the time. Despite suffering this horrific injury and hovering close to death, Bethany recovered enough to be able to return to competitive surfing just months later with only one arm, and went on to win the National Scholastic Surfing Association National Championships in 2005. The film, which is directed by Sean McNamara, stars Anna Sophia Robb as Hamilton, features Dennis Quaid, Helen Hunt and Carrie Underwood in supporting roles, and has a superb and highly original score by the versatile Marco Beltrami.

Despite still being best-known for his work in the horror and science fiction genres, Marco Beltrami has written several excellent works for conventional dramas, most of which show a keen emotional and thematic sensibility which rarely gets an airing. Soul Surfer is one of those scores, but is different again, as it gave Beltrami the opportunity to work traditional Hawaiian mele chants into the fabric of the score, representing not only the setting of the film, but giving something of a flavor of the spiritual element that runs through Hawaiian society, and ultimately gives Bethany the strength to recover from her terrible ordeal. These mele are the emotional cornerstone of the entire score, not only in terms of their purely musical value, but also in terms of the meaning of the lyrics (English translations for which are available from Beltrami's website), which intelligently echo the intent of the scenes they accompany.

Be careful when trying to by the soundtrack to Soul Surfer. There are 2 versions and they look the same. We listened to the "samples" on line and what I thought I was choosing to put in my cart ended up not being what I listened to. There is one CD that is all the Hawaiian instrumental music from the movie and then there are the lyrical songs. We wanted the instrumental and ended up with the lyrical version. Thankfully, Amazon was kind enough to do an exchange so I was not out anything. If you are looking for the instrumental music look for "Original Motion Picture Score Music Composed and Conducted by Marco Beltrami" if you are looking for all the other music, look for "Music from the Motion Picture"

Easily in the top five films I've seen this year, the score to Soul Surfer by Marco Beltrami also qualifies as one of his finest works. Music is one of the finest tools for conveying emotion and this score captures the spirit and majesty of the subject matter while keeping the sense of hope that is such a strong theme in the story itself.

I was just looking at other soundtracks that had recently come out and was amazed by the quality in composition and musical interpretation of this beautiful soundtrack. Marco Beltrami... well, I'd heard about his name but I'd never purchased anything from this talented composer. I am now aware that the best gems are, most of the time, hidden from plain sight. This only makes them more valuable when you find them.

I am truly pleased about all the details the composer went through when composing this album. You hear exotic instruments like the ukelele, male and female choirs, piano, beautiful cello's and violins, an amazing array of percussion and all is very well put together to give a sense of grandeur, freedom and hope. I truly reccommend it to anyone who likes inspiring music.

All the songs are unique and really beautiful, there is no bad song here. Even though you wish some of the songs were longer, it has 19 songs, so it's still a very good purchase.

¡Happy listening!

This CD is fun, inspirational, and energetic. I enjoy every song on it and love listening to it while driving to the beach. Its also great to wake up to if you have a CD player alarm clock. in my opinion it has a nice variety of artists and styles that complement the content and story line of the movie really well.

Soul Surfer has become one of my all time favorite movies, and after watching it the first couple times i often found myself singing the music. I am so happy I went ahead and purchased the two soundtrack CD's. This CD, the original motion picture score, contains all the instrumental music (please note that there is a separate CD for the songs with lyrics by various artists). It has a rich and beautiful, inspiring sound. I love listening to it while driving or doing art projects. I highly recommend this CD!

I was very excited to find this smok'en deal. I loved this movie and couldn't find the soundtrack in any store. I found it as an I-tunes download for $5.00 on Amazon. Can't beat that!

Peace~E. Taylor
