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.

You really get a sense of how awful the devastation was after the tsunami. Very moving story with excellent acting, especially Naomi Watts and the boy who played her oldest son. I cried a lot - it was a very moving story and well worth seeing.

iT WAS OK. I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE MORE OF THE SCENERY OF WHAT THE ACTUAL AREA LOOKED LIKE WHEN THE DISASTER OCCURED. I ALSO WISH THERE WAS A FOLLOW UP STORY AT THE END TO TELL US WHAT THE FAMILY HAS DONE IN THE EIGHT YEARS THAT FOLLOWED, ESPECIALLY THE BOY LUCAS

Stunning cinematography and brilliant acting + characters that showed selfless love in the face of unfathomable adversity + a true story with an outcome that truly was impossible. This film will change you (for the better.)

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.
