Knowing the outcome of this difficult to watch movie made it much more doable. Tragic true survival story. Well acted--the boys were great. How can Naomi Watts look good even while dripping with blood?

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.

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!

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.
