Most underrated movie of 2012
An amazing movie. Visually stunning and emotionally wrenching, the story of a family that goes for a holiday at a resort on Christmas Eve, 2004 and what happens to them following the devastating tsunami that struck on December 26. The story centers on the eldest son and his mother and their efforts to at first survive, and then find their other family members. Incredibly, this is a true story. I cried several times.
How did this get an oscar nomination? Bad acting dialogue and far too much of a hollywood feel. I went to see this with my wife last night, and even she didn't cry at all.
let down. emotions in the movie were too forced, it didnt do justice to the true story this is based on. still gave it a 2nd star for the story it was based on, which is still touching.
This movie was dissapointing. Considering the bad acting on the part of the male lead, the lack of showing many of the other survivors (instead seemingly having tunnel vision on the main couple), and the way they really tried to polish everything up dissapointed me greatly.
No surprise here that it didn't get more than one oscar nomination, and that that one was for Naomi Watts.
I am trying to become an professional actor like Tom Holland,as Tom has given me hope and made it more believable for me to become a actor like him, I aspire to achieve greatness and star in awesome movies like THE IMPOSSIBLE good luck to you Tom as I will be trying to be like you in a few years time! :D Thank You!
This movie is absolutely brilliant a master piece,especially the actor Tom Holland,he is a fantastic actor who I one day aspire to like,I just wish him the best of luck in his high potential future as a professional actor.I idolise Tom Holland as he has shown the true potential of a young teenager (like my self) and the great things you can achieve with hard work and belief.I one day wish I could have the opportunity to achieve greatness like Tom, as I know he will be awesome in his future movies, Good Luck! :D
to the person justifying only white folks in a disaster where they're a minority. imagine a movie about 9/11: an American (colored family; say Chinese or whatever else is invisible in America) featured but none of the locals (whites?) have much of a speaking part at all. maybe a few extras here and there [same scenario] except you might object that Asian (Chinese?) Americans can only be found in 'chinatown' (or they aren't important; or no one wants to see 'them colored' Americans, etc. seriously one sided. Red Dawn/Olympus Has Fallen 'anti-slant'
It could it be better since was based on a true story,good effects but terrible acting of the boy, they missed to show more survivors when in the water, it looked as if they had been the only ones which took away veracity :(
Loved this One,kept me hoping for a Happy Ending!
