Based on a true event, this is a really good film, I would highly recommend.
If it's a 'disaster movie' like you say, how can it be rated at 3.5 stars and 'still worth seeing'? The review is too ambiguous.
The Impossible is already one of my Top 15 films of the year. I was very impressed by it. It almost plays out like a horror film - no wonder, as the director also made The Orphanage.
If you are squeamish DO NOT see this movie , there is a lot of scenes of injuries , blood and broken bones and lots of human suffering throughout the film but same time it is a well made movie and makes you appreciates life and pray that Tsunamis don't hit ireland
Thought this was a very realsitic movie, very sad as well. Worth going to see.
@Jack Brown - No point praying that tsunamis don't hit Ireland. Science has proved they won't, they occur along the plates. Also, The Impossible is incredible. Fantastic performance by Naomi.
Thought the movie was excellent. Definitely one to see on the big screen. The wave was very well done. Heart wrenching but worth seeing.
@DoubleLetter - An asteroid impact can cause a tsunami as well so if a asteroid hit the atlantic or Irish sea Ireland could be hit by one. . . . your right about it being a great film tho
Just seen it.. Such a great film.. Best true-story movie I've ever seen..
Very disapointed by this review. This is no 'Disaster porn' about pumped up Hollywood heroes, but a sensitive and powerful portrayal of an ordinary family caught up in one of the worst natural disasters of recent times. I would definitely recommend.
