Jack O'Connell does great as a war movie everyman hero, but the film is predictable failed 'Oscar-bait.'

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.

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 …
