Jolie has an army of craftsmen in her corner, notably camera poet Roger Deakins (No Country for Old Men). But it's her vision that gives Unbroken a spirit that soars. In honoring Louis' endurance, she does herself proud. show more
The title isn’t “Broken,” so there’s not much doubt of the outcome. But it’s certainly regrettable, because this long and increasingly sluggish film version of the Laura Hillenbrand book celebrates an American life of singular heroism. show more
Unbroken is a grueling endurance test - for the audience just as much as for its cutout champion. show more
"Unbroken" is a real MUST see. We watched it as a family in our own home and it was so fantastic. We all thought Jolie got a raw deal.
I am wondering if Jolie read the book! I feel that the most important part of his journey was finding peace and forgiveness through God and religion. While watching the movie and wondering how long we were going to watch them wade at sea and then how many times we had to see him be beat down and get up....we all knew that and it was dreadful. But the real strength in that man was his forgiveness. I feel that Jolie was trying to make another action fiction out of a true historical one. She should perhaps stick to fiction next time because this one was misleading. I took my son because I knew he would never read the book and all he got out of it was hate.....not at all what I think Louis would have wanted, but everything that I think the liberal Jolie did.
Best movie we've seen in years. Edge of seat and proud of our soldiers.
