Critic Reviews for Momentum Generation

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Momentum Generation puts out a notably wide welcome mat, which means you don't have to know or even care that much about pro-surfing history to become absorbed by it.

A surf film might not be the first thing you'd expect to bring you repeatedly to tears, but I can say with authority it is possible.

Warm-hearted and thrilling in equal measure - Momentum Generation is an utterly compelling at a tight knit group of daredevils.

June 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Momentum Generation is concerned with how different people traverse that weird and confusing space between childhood and adulthood.

The film by Michael and Jeff Zimbalist is full of awesome surf footage on huge waves, but also a lot of emotional reminiscing among its stars, which include Taylor Steele, Kelly Slater, Rob Machado and about a dozen more.

Surfing is a craft (a sport? a lifeway?) that has generated a lot of mediocre film over the years. Momentum Generation is something unusual in all that: It's genuine, and genuinely interesting.
