Excerpt: An impressive, breathtaking, haunting and frightening movie that I surely won't forget. A very realistic picture about the devastating force that a tsunami can cause and it demonstrates how tiny we human beings are despite our high-tech knowledge when facing natural phenomena .
Summary: Nothing is more powerful than the human spirit. Okay this movie is a true story well they are some things in this movie that was not really true like the wave itself I mean it looks more bigger then the photos.
Summary: Surprisingly pretty good. I understand that it is based on a true story but much of it seems far fetched. The beginning starts off really well but once the family is clearly separated it looses steam.
Summary: Features stunning imagery as well as some amazing performances from Watts and McGregor, and Tom Holland who plays the youngest son, but this is director Juan Antonio Bayona's movie. His direction makes The Impossible one of the most intense films of last year, despite a mediocre screenplay.
Excerpt: I want to start this review by saying that if you are in a time in your life where you think everything is bad have a look at this film as it will make you feel that things aren't really that bad. Definatly the feel good movie of 2012.
Excerpt: "It's a beautiful mystery isn't it?" Intense, moving and powerful. On Christmas Eve the Bennett family spend their vacation In Thailand. A tsunami hits and Maria Bennett (Naomi Watts) and her husband Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons Lucas (Tom Holland), Tomas and Simon get lost in the...
Summary: If you can get past the needless and vaguely offensive Anglicization of the Spanish family whose story served as the basis for this film, this is nail-biting stuff. Easily the most heart-wrenching film of 2012.
Excerpt: The Impossible (2013) Based on a true story of a family who, while on vacation at a coastal resort in Thailand, are separated after a devastating Tsunami hits. Naomi Watts, in an Academy Award nominated role, plays Maria, the mom who has given up being a doctor to raise her family.
Summary: Unflinching drama about a real life tragedy. The approach is realistic and the effect is emotionally draining. There are many moments that I found hard to watch, both from gruesome images and heartbreaking struggle. Major credit is given to the performances and the directing.
