As real as it gets...

This movie is extremely well made. You actually feel/believe that you are there with this family and go through all the horrifying experiences they went through. You can feel yourself experiencing the terror of that Tsunami. It is gut retching at times. The cast is superb and do the experience justice. This is a must see... you will plead with a higher power to never ever be near anything like this when you are done watching this movie. Very much Oscar worthy.

This was an amazing movie! It grabbed you from the minute the wave hit the resort. Extremely emotional and powerful. If you don't leave that movie with a new appreciation for your wife and children, then you don't have a heart!

Title fits it well

This movie really makes you think about what the important things in life are. If you're in the mood for a tear-jerker then this is the movie to see. When you are watching it you need to remember it's based on a true story and that makes it even more dramatic. I would recommend this for anyone. There were two grown men sitting next to me when I went and they were just as stunned as I during the entire film and sat in silence as the credits rolled. A must see in my book.

Super Intensity

Since this was a true story and you know what's going to happen, you brace yourself from the start..just waiting. Once the waves roll in and the family drama begins you are breathless. Incredible acting from the entire cast. The kids are so moving. You feel everyone's pain. You really need a big cocktail after just to calm your nerves...a must to see!
