Missing neither tension nor depth, "The Impossible" innovates its disaster movie setup with valuable and powerful messages about kindness, love, generosity, and humanity.

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.

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. Throw in a few dumb parts with the kids and you have an above average film that falls a little flat. Still a decent feel good drama but not for me.

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.

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 (excluding Amour, obviously).

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. I found the tsunami scene itself to be truly frightening. There is not a single scene that didn't envoke some kind of emotional response from me. The human nature of this story is the strongest element. Watching this film has left me impacted, esxhausted, and more appreciative of my own family.
