Surf's Up

 (2007)

Teenage Rockhopper penguin Cody Maverick (voiced by Shia LaBeouf), an up-and-coming surfer, enters his first pro competition. Followed by a camera crew to document his experiences, Cody leaves his family and home in Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off. Along the way, Cody meets Sheboygan surfer Chicken Joe (Jon Heder), famous surf promoter Reggie Belafonte, surf talent scout Mikey Abromowitz, and spirited lifeguard Lani Aliikai (Zooey Deschanel), all of whom recognize Cody's passion for surfing, even if it's a bit misguided at times. Cody believes that winning will bring him the admiration and respect he desires, but when he unexpectedly comes face-to-face with a washed-up old surfer, Cody begins to find his own way, and discovers that a true winner isn't always the one who comes in first.

For more about Surf's Up and the Surf's Up Blu-ray release, see Surf's Up Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Surf's Up Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

From the textures of jungle foliage to slick ice to the sheen of penguin feathers and the reflectivity of water, the video and animation quality of Surf's Up are top notch. In CGI worlds, I look for a semblance of weight or gravity in the characters and objects. The animators of Surf's Up did an admirable job rendering movement, waves and objects to appear to carry heft. The goal wasn't realism, but just a sense of mass in the visual proceedings to take it a step beyond the average animation. Watch the jungle scenes, with the way the foliage moves and the light filters through the canopy, affecting different surfaces in different ways. Or the surf competition in which we go "in the tube" and watch spray, foam and various textures encompass the screen. All is rendered and reproduced on blu-ray with excellence.

The MPEG-4 codec delivers gobs of detail. I notice a great deal of fine film grain. This ran counter to my expectations of seeing a washed-out, glitzy, overly post-produced picture. Heavy over-production is not the case here. The 1.85:1 image was solid, with good contrast and deep blacks. The colors were vibrant, but not annoyingly so. While CGI never seems particularly convincing in its cheap illusion of depth, kids will get lost in the lush videostage.



Surf's Up Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The voices had much to do with the charm of Surf's Up. With actors as familiar as Jeff Bridges and James Woods, the filmmakers did a good job matching the animated animals' personalities to the voice. It was amusing that the penguin matched to Jeff Bridges' voice was an older, burned out character living outside societal norms, not totally unlike Bridges' portrayal of Jeffrey Lebowski more than 10 years ago.

The voices and sound effects achieved good definition and strong midrange clarity. On this BD, Sony went beyond most expectations by including both uncompressed PCM and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 tracks. Unfortunately, these are based on a 16-bit, 48 kHz master, so the overall sound is not much better than run-of-the-mill CD quality. It therefore may not be the best material to evaluate the differences between these two types of tracks. Clearly, the PCM and TrueHD are each more than sufficient for the average HT buff, let alone the average youngster who will be watching this material. I would have liked more use of the LFE and surround channels, particularly with big waves, and the pop rock and reggae soundtrack, which added to the atmosphere, was assigned to all the channels. But overall the audio was very good.
