Unbroken 
'Unbroken' is Broken
2/4 stars

'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 whole ordeal after the return home. I would've loved to have seen this new route. The film is well made, in most aspects. I have to blame this one mostly on the directing and acting. A for sure disappointment. Not deserving of the award nominations it has already garnered. Let's hope the Academy knows better.
