This movie is very powerful. Not for the squeemish. I had to shut my eyes and try not to listen a few times but I am glad I went. Lucas is the star, in my opinion.

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.

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.

This is one of, if not the, best movie I've seen this year. That's really saying something, because I go to a lot of movies. Do yourself a favor and go!

went with 4 teenagers thought the movie was intense and at times more gory then expected but all around loved it and over 2 hours flew by, bring your tissues even if you are a guy.
