Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Impossible is a nimbly acted drama that is at once a stellar visual achievement and a life-affirming story of familial love and courage.
Fresh: An intense and compelling family melodrama from Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona that sets a new standard for disaster cinema.
Rotten: Alas, the movie tells a rather commonplace story.
Fresh: Naomi Watts gives one of her finest, most physically commanding turns.
So moving :(
Best Movie of the year in my opinion I thought this was way better than Argo
More believable by far!
Can't remember a movie made me cry more.
Fantastic written story about this family.
Sorry guys, if I could appreciate this movie, I would. As of now, 1 star only.
