Quick Review

Based on a true story of a family caught in the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia, The Impossible brings out the very core of the human survival instinct; Strength, will, persistence and hope. The movie does this with astounding effect on the nerves.

Naimo Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland and many others evoke true emotion with their portrayal of being caught in a tragedy beyond imagining. The focus is on the personal story of the main family but the movie does a good job of conveying the massive scale of this natural disaster. I was wrapped up in the movie from the start and by the end I was numb. What an emotional ride.

Horrific and moving.
