The impossible is a true survival story revolving around a family of six who become the untimely victims of one of the worst natural disasters in recorded history, the 2004 Tsunami of Thailand. The film opens with a local family lounging on an island beach resort when the impossible occurs, a freak tsunami wreaking havoc and destruction. In the wake of the aftermath, the family finds themselves on a perilous journey to reclaim what is lost in a barren wasteland of destruction. It's a heartbreaking tale of lost, tragedy, and triumph against the odds. For those seeking a tearjerker genre, this film is the place to be.

Was just a so-so movie. The story line is interesting. Parential choices made by "true story" actors "impossible" to believe. Ms. Watts gives a good performance. Not a bad movie, just so-so.

Excellent story of people and family coming together. What an amazing story. How they survive is nothing short of "impossible". I love how the family was connected with their devotion to one another. Very well done.

Very exciting from the beginning to the end. A true but slightly altered story. A couple of scenes you might need to turn your head. But I really enjoyed this movie. Excellent acting and wonderful cinematogrphy.

I really don't know how they made this movie (i.e., special effects); parts of it are so horrific. It made a tremendous impact on the whole audience in the theater where we watched it, and parts are VERY sad -- even more so because its' true -- but it's a wonderful story of family devotion to one another! The cast was wonderful; Naomi Watts gave an Oscar-worthy performance, as did the young actor who played her son Lucas.
