About the Movie
Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces this epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis "Louie" Zamperini (Jack O'Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived on a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII – only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand's (Seabiscuit: An American Legend) enormously popular book, it’s the inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Unbroken" is a rousing old-fashioned yarn with numerous exciting set-pieces and an uncomplicated hero you root for all the way through. It's entertaining throughout and made with a high level of technical skill.
Fresh: "Unbroken" stirs a moviegoer by default; it's an astounding story of human endurance that has been brought a little too safely to the screen.
Rotten: A tale of endurance, "Unbroken" takes endurance to sit through.
Rotten: Unbroken is a fitting title for this excruciating cinematic treatment of the flyboy's ordeal. It plays like an endless, unrelieved gauntlet of suffering, an onslaught untempered by grace or redemption.
Read the book, forgo the movie
Politically correct Angela Jolie, an admitted atheists, totally missed the point of the story.
It is just not surviving the depression and World War 2 that was the point of being unbroken.
It was the subsequent Demons this man faced and how after all that, he was indeed unbroken.
His faith saved him. A bitter pill for the left wing to accept.
As a war movie it was average to a bit below average.
Save yourself $15 and get the book or download the audible version. That is a better way to go than to buy this movies.
Failed to exceed expectations
I read the book and loved it. Can't say the same about the movie. They failed to capture the power of Zamperini's life. If I was not with people I would've walked out of the theater. Overall disappointment.
A fantastic book...
If this story interests you at all, read the book -- it's phenomenal. The movie just can't capture what really happened. Visually stunning, but no real emotional connections.
