A very good movie, a enjoyable tale of survival

Based on the true story of Louis Zamperini who started out as a olympic runner but then ended up in the army during the world war . unluckily his plane crashed and he ends up stranded on the ocean with 2 other crew members only then to be rescued by the japanese who then put him in a prisoner of war camp where one officer seems to go out of his way to break him.
This is a very good film i enjoyed it all. and it was something you could really get into and lost in. i was so lost in it i didn't see the shark coming whch made me jump out of my seat and you dont get that even with a horror movie lol

A well made film, with some broken parts in it

If I Can Take It, I Can Make It. True words of wisdom right they.

Unbroken is a true story about a Olympian and war hero Louis "Louie" Zamperini played by (Jack O'Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII-only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

Unbroken is directed by the Oscar wining actress Angelina Jolie, and this isn't the first she directed a film, yeah she directed one Documentary I think and she also did a film called "In the Land of Blood and Honey", and what I heard these two films she did (Even the Documentary) was slammed and hated by everyone. I haven't really seen those two films (And I never will) but now she directs Unbroken and I can safely ...

Some Cracks Show, But Unbroken Holds Strong

Next time I tell you about how bad a day I've had or how terrible my life is - just remind me of Unbroken and life Louis Zamperini had to live during WWII - shot down, surviving 45 days out at sea, surviving not one but two Japanese POW camps - anything life has thrown at me through this point pales in comparison.

Zamperini (played by Jack O'Connell) grew up as a petty thief but thanks to the love and support of his brother, Pete, he turned his back on that life and turned to running - specifically cross-country, which in turn led him to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Germany. These flashbacks are interspersed with his role as a bomb operator - missions which hold the very real danger of death. When their own plane is damaged, they are given the relatively benign task of a rescue operatio...

'Unbroken' is Broken

'Unbroken' is the same 'true story' survival tale told time and time again. There's nothing new offered at all. The lack of suspense and emotional involvement I felt made the familiar structured story a bit tedious when trudging through the slowly drawn-out second half. This is where the film becomes a long repetition of the main character being broken down physically by his terrible situations. There's no inspirational feat reached when your protagonist shows little struggle. He's essentially a punching bag for the elements and an almost borderline goofy 'evil' general. No human connection is established. I'm sad to say that I just never cared for one minute. The closing pictures and words of the real-life people held more interesting dramatic avenues for their coping with the wh...
