  With its four nubile gals rooming together in Hawaii and cavorting by the Pacific to the pop music of the day, "Blue Crush" could've been an update of a '60s "Beach Party" movie. But it takes another strain of '60s cinema, the surfing documentary (e.g. "The Endless Summer"), and gives it a female-empowerment twist. Any fears that "Blue Crush" is actually "Surfer Girls Gone Wild" are allayed by its terse, colloquial dialogue and its gasp-inducing cinematography of surfers in action. Based on a magazine article about young women who work as resort-hotel maids when they aren't "shooting the curl," the script trails skilled wave-rider Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth) as she tries to raise her little sister, surfs with friends (Michelle Rodriguez, Sanoe Lake) and prepares to conquer the deadly Banzai Pipeline in competition. A romance subplot is a wipeout: Anne Marie may forgo the championship after she goes gaga for a pro quarterback visiting Oahu. But the thrilling you-are-there-on-the-board scenes make this worth the ride.
