Movie Reviews

A great watch
E. Petrisca | 01/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this movie on a plane coming back from Oahu, Hawaii. I am really impressed by how the movie conveys the history of Hawaii and what it was like before it became so commercialized. I recommend this film for anyone who truly loves the beauty and history of Hawaii. There is some great surfing too! The movie explains the origins of Duke and how he shaped the sport of surfing. Now when I go to Duke's (restaurant) I understand his role and how important he is to the Hawaiian people. Rent it!"
True Aloha Style

"A great movie that really captures the true sense of Aloha and how Duke and many other great Hawai'ian people have the true Island Spirit. Not many tourists can see that Spirit of Aloha in the Islands today...but if you look hard and give respect to the people and the places of their land some might find it's way into your heart.
The love of the ocean and the gift of surfing... 'riding the wave, not the board' is apparent. Much can be learned from the Hawai'ian culture and it's people, just take a moment the next time you visit the Islands to drink in the Ohana. The surfing on the old style boards is great... take out one of those boards and you had to be a real waterman.
Aloha & Mahalo, Mike"
Ono !

"For us ' Hawaiian at heart', This movie is why we love Hawaii. What a great portrayal of The Duke ! As Don Ho once said, ' most visitors leave Hawaii without knowing more than the beauty of our beaches and the excitement of a luau' , they never get to know the Hawaiian people or the culture- that have made these Islands so very special ! This movie shows what can happen to someone, Kawika, when you are 'taken in' by this place known as Hawaii. Great story ,great scenery and a wonderful use of Hawaiian language. You'll never get tired of viewing this movie, I know I don't. I miss that kulana kai !"
