Movies are for entertainment

I love movies that you can really sink your teeth in. This is not one of those. Very good effects, acting, editing, cinematography.......but it is a movie of survival, and it gets to be pretty disturbing.....I didn't see much entertainment element to it, but many disturbing images.

Powerful gut wrenching film

Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts delivered superb performances supported by a great cast. The special effects are very dramatic, causing many in the theater to jump or spill drinks on others. Once again, my apologies to the crusty curmudgeon next to me who apparently did not like Powerade on his trousers. But, perhaps you should not have spilled your nacho cheese onto my jeans. Special note- Tom Holland stole the show as Lucas, their rebellious teenager who came of age during the tsunami, thinking more of others than of himself. A must see film!

Totally engrossing

More graphic than I imagined .... But also fantastic. The visual imagery is amazing, as is the acting -- esp. Naomi Watts. Also loved the actor who plays the oldest son. He matures right before your eyes. Stunning and moving and gripping.
