I had recently watched the documentary 'I Am Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash' which piqued my interest to catch this theatrical version on cable last night. This was actually a really good movie, the acting was middle of the road, with the exception of a young Ethan Hawke, whom I felt gave a notable performance. The crash scene and the overall scenery gave the movie great credibility and just the historical accuracies made it an emotional picture. I would definitely recommend taking the couple hours to watch it.

It was a very good movie. My sister tells me that there was a documentary made about a similar incident that was very interesting.

This story is an amazing tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. I just cannot believe what these people when through and that the actually survived. I kept thinking that I'm not sure I could have gone on. Quite moving.
