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.

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!

An experience

A movie that one has to see if just for the filming and sheer devastation of the region as portrayed. The story, desperation, was overwhelming. You have to remember the whole time that its a happy ending or else you might lose it. The acting was superb, especially the 3 kids, Lucas deserves a special mention.
