5.0 out of 5 stars Intense Sept. 30 2013
By KimY111
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The first 15 minutes of this movie was the most intense. What these people went thru and the fear they must have felt is absolutely terrifying. The best movie I've seen in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch movie! June 14 2013
By MM
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a heart-wrenching, nail biting and shocking movie. Great acting by Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor not to mention... Exceptional performances by such young actors who play their sons. Highly recommend this movie. I think the cinematography was phenomenal and gives you a realistic view of that horrific tragedy. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars WoW June 7 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a great movie. Had me sitting on the edge of my chair. I don,t much care for movies with water in them because I fear water.
But I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and was glad it had a happy ending for the family involved. Would recommend. Have added to my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and exciting, but could have been more. May 13 2013
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Amazing effects and stunt along with and solid performances balance out some artistic lapses and ethical questions
in this true story of one family’s experiences of the horrendous Tsunami that killed 300,000.

The downsides; there’s something a little off-putting about choosing a white, privileged family as a focus, while at the
same time showing almost exclusively other white people as suffering and afraid in a disaster that killed far more local
people than tourists. The Thai’s are certainly shown in a good light, kindly helping all these suffering whites, but even
in the hospital, almost every face we see in a bed is a white one. That hint of odd racial insensitivity is also underlined
by replacing the original family, who were Spanish and dark, and making them into a gorgeous blond English family, a
telling choice in a ‘true’ story.

On a more general level, the film can feel manipulative, from the tear jerking score, to the multiple “will they spot each other?”
shots that feel like a horror film’s self-conscious suspense creating frames, but that technique feels strangely artificial in this
more naturalistic setting. There’s no question it’s exciting and at times moving, but it felt to me like one of those films I
would have felt even more deeply if it wasn’t pushing so hard to win my emotions.

I will only give a 5 Star rating when a movie touches me as this movie did. "THE IMPOSSIBLE" (which is based on the true story of one families nightmare) keeps you on the edge of your seat from the start to the finnish. It is truly an amazing story and I truly believe the people chosen for the main character roles were the right people to play the family that this story is based on and I also feel they each did a first rate job. The special effects are so real that you will think they are actually happening. There wasn't anything I didn't like about the movie because it was a true story and I believe the director was trying to stay as close as he could to what actually happened. Several people have complained that the story was about a Spanish family but the family in the movie are English but for whatever reason they had in casting these particular actors for the movie we might never know and all I can say is that I believe each actor and actress portrayed each member of the Belon family the way they should have. Understand one thing as you watch this movie that it was written by Maria Belon. I learned a valuable lesson from this movie and that was the devestation that a tsunami can cause. After I first saw "The Impossible" I went onto my computer and researched this tsunami as well as others and then I really understood how devestating it really was. It is a real eye opener. I thank God that he was looking after each member of the Belon family during their terrible ordeal. Maria, Quique (Henry), Lucas, Tomas and Simon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frightening true story Jan. 24 2014
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor star as parents who take their three sons to Thailand on vacation where they become victims of the deadly tsunami of 2004.

Every minute of this true story is gut-wrenching, from the incredibly realistic recreation of the tsunami to the mass death and devastation afterward. Watts and McGregor are excellent as the suffering and selfless parents and Tom Holland gives a wonderful performance as their brave young son.

I saw videos of the disaster, but putting a personal, family face on the horror makes it all the more real and heartbreaking. Filmed on location in Thailand, the movie is intense and very moving. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars So realistic Jan. 3 2014
Format:Blu-ray
It's hard to find a decent movie made from a real tragic event, but this one is certainly one of the best. For those whose lives were touched by this Tsunami (like me), this will be a good part of your collection. I think the best part is that the whole thing look so realistic. All the actors/actresses and particularly the 3 boys were so good as their characters. The weak point of the movie, I think, is the music, which could haven't been better. Also, I was expecting more extras that discussed about the real event or interviews with the real family. None of those were there.
