Synopsis


Unbroken
Angelina Jolie directs this true-life tale of Louis Zamperini, the Olympic track star who survived a plane crash in World War II, only to fight for his life against nature and eventually as a prisoner of war. Joel and Ethan Coen provide the script. Louis (Jack O'Connell) grows up a rough-hewn kid on the verge of becoming a full-on delinquent, until his brother starts training him to be a track star. Louis excels at the sport, and eventually represents America at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. During his training, he learns to become resilient and disciplined; his brother's words of advice, "If you can take it, you can make it," push him to overcome any adversity. He must live up to that adage under the most extreme circumstances after his plane is shot down during another bombing raid. He is stranded at sea for more than a month, only to be found by the Japanese and forced to endure constant physical abuse at the hands of sadistic prison-camp guard Mutsuhiro Watanabe (Japanese pop star Miyavi), who wants to break Louis' indomitable spirit. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    Good, but should have been outstanding

    This film was a good film, but my main problem is that it should have been outstanding with the given source material it came from about Louis Zamperini's incredible life. The man's journey is incredible and I just felt like this film didn't fully showcase how incredible it was. I don't want to harp on Angelina Jolie, but this is the type of story and film that should have won best picture at the Academy Awards. Maybe if Spielberg directed it and was the leader on set this film could have been an all-time great film, but it just ended up being good but not memorable. The cinematography was good. The acting was good. I would recommend this movie to anyone, because it is not overly violent with cursing like some war films, so the young ones can watch it. It is a good inspirational film for anyone that needs motivation and inspiration, but, again, it could have been so much better and could have been an iconic film given the source material. Steelbook Case: I really like the front cover, but unfortunately their is no artwork on the back cover and it is just white. The interior artwork is pretty bland. In terms of rating this steelbook for collectors, I would give it a 5 out of 10 because it looks bland and is not very beautiful like other steelbooks. Included: Blu-ray, DVD, digital copy (Itunes, Windows Media), and ultraviolet copy (Vudu, CinemaNow, etc)

    An outstanding story of survival and forgiveness. I followed the true story of the WWII vet on CBS Sunday Morning, and was amazed to see it come to the big screen.

    This movie is a great introduction to Louis Zamperini's story and will likely make you want to read Laura Hillenbrand's book with the same title. It's well-told, acted, and directed. Definitely worth the time.
