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.

Emotionally Gripping!

From one of the earliest scenes, you are thrown directly into the tragedy that starts the emotional roller coaster you will endure throughout the film. The sadness and fear that I felt were overwhelming in the beginning!! From devastated, to hopeful, to elated, you are forced to FEEL SOMETHING from beginning to end with this movie, and that is what makes a film great in my opinion! A must see, highly recommended, but don't be surprised if you shed some tears. Also, I can't forget to mention the INCREDIBLE acting done, particularly by Naomi, as well as the young boy who played the oldest son Lucas. Loved it.

Not a dull moment in this movie. Guaranteed "Weeper" film but all worth it at the end. Treat yourself and your loved ones to this truly amazing true story.

I just saw The Impossible. What an incredible true story. Can't imagine experiencing anything like this. The acting is superb. I was really impressed with the young actor who plays the oldest son. Take your hankie with you, it's worth it.
