Angelina Jolie directs this true-life tale of Louis Zamperini, the Olympic track star who survived a plane crash in World War II, only to fight for his life against nature and eventually as a prisoner of war. Joel and Ethan Coen provide the script. Louis (Jack O'Connell) grows up a rough-hewn kid on the verge of becoming a full-on delinquent, until his brother starts training him to be a track star. Louis excels at the sport, and eventually represents America at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. During his training, he learns to become resilient and disciplined; his brother's words of advice, "If you can take it, you can make it," push him to overcome any adversity. He must live up to that adage under the most extreme circumstances after his plane is shot down during another bombing raid. He is stranded at sea for more than a month, only to be found by the Japanese and forced to endure constant physical abuse at the hands of sadistic prison-camp guard Mutsuhiro Watanabe (Japanese pop star Miyavi), who wants to break Louis' indomitable spirit.

In my opinion, I liked the movie. There were parts of the movie that were hard to watch because it was just too painful--but you know, that's war, and the two World Wars are just terrible and heartbreaking. I hadn't heard of Louis Zamparini until I watched the movie. I eventually looked him up on Google,  but even then, the sources I reviewed didn't go into enough depth for me to make a solid opinion on the movie and how they portrayed Zamparini and his trials. Those who have researched him thoroughly or know him personally would have a better and more in depth review. The movie might not have captured everything that emphasized that he was a hero, but it really captivated me and has the ability to evoke emotion in the audience. I would watch this again and recommend it to those who like war movies and inspirational stories..

This movie completely missed the mark.  This movie did a terrible job convincing me that Zamperini is a hero.  This movie could have been done WAY better if Zamperini could have explained the point of the story as it progressed or in retrospect.  Louis' voice was missing.  Read his book, don't waste your time on this sugar coated version.

Keeps you on the edge of your seat. Sweet scenes with his family. What a truly amazing man! Acting is excellent. Surprised but encouraged that Jolie chose this story. The book is also an excellent read.
