This inspiring tale of survival is based on the real-life experiences of Louis Zamperini, an American pilot held by the Japanese during World War II. After his plane crashes into the Pacific Ocean, Zamperini spends 47 days adrift before his capture.

Evie Totty: “It was ok.”

Again, it was great but no desire to see it again. I saw all of those men that were with Louis as the same kind of hero. They were all tortured too. And they made it through. I am amazed at what I saw though. Also interesting note. There was a scene that caught me off guard and I actually spilled like a quarter of my tub of popcorn.

Ha. Cinematography was great. Acting top notch. I can't believe this movie was snubbed for the Globes. Oscar bait.

Scott Hardie: Yeah, its timing and marketing scream Oscar bait. I doubt that it has very good chances with the Academy, since its director is not much respected as a director (not yet anyway), and because it peaked too early in the season. But who knows. And anyway, it's more important that it's a good movie, which it sounds from your review like it is. I look forward to seeing this myself. − January 1, 2015 • more by Scott
