The movie unbroken is about an Olympic runner who was in the
army whose plane broke down over a search in rescue mission was stranded over
sea.He had three of his crew members
with him and was eventually found by a Japanese Naval ship.Jack o’ connor played Louis Zamperini the
main protagonist of this true story.
The movie itself is
good I didn’t have a problem with it the cast was believable and the actors
didn’t seem flawed. The WWII aspect was near perfect and had authentic items in
the movie. The movie was directed by Angelina Jolie and a fun fact both Louis
and Angelina lived so close together her house overlooked his.
Unbroken gives you a
feeling of perspective on how evil and cruel people can actually be just
because there is a war going on. Louise Zamperini had lived as a troublesome
child he would smoke and drink and get into fights and got taken home by the
cops until one day his brother who ran track saw him run away from the track
coach and decided to train Louise in track.
Louise eventually became better and better as he ran and
made it to the Olympics.
enlisted in WWII like many. At the end of the movie Louise made peace with his
captors and had lived a life of god however he couldn’t make peace with one
person but not say since that is spoiler and spoilers are not allowed here. The
movie at a core does a good job of a retelling but it does use Hollywood flair
to give the movie its extra push.
I would give this
movie an 8/10. The movie isn’t perfect it does have its flaws and clichés but
they don’t hold the movie back and aren’t really visible but they are still
there. Louise Zamperini had lived to 88 and before his death he had run the
Olympic torch in Japan. I do give Louise Zamperini credit to make peace with
people who had hurt him but it also a good thing he was able to forgive what
they did to him and other allies in the camps. The movie does produce a good
quote “Forgive the sin smile upon the sinner” which means forgive the
transgression but smile at the one doing the transgression. The movie will be
available on march 23 2015 is the official release.
