Review: The Impossible

Based on the true-life story of a Spanish family who went on a Christmas holiday in Thailand in 2004 and were caught up in the tsunami that hit south-east Asia, killing 230,000 people. With simplicity and conviction.

The Impossible was a timeless tribute to the faith of a very special family, and it was execute beautifully and flawlessly, the tsunami disaster was indeed very effective than any disaster movie, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor has brought us to tears and there performance was simply over the top and special.

Maria, Henry and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her.

It's so impossible that you can find a better actors than these two leading stars, I’m still not over the emotional trauma that The Impossible put me though, Altough i love Jennifer Lawrence so much and Emanuelle Riva but i think Naomi Watts deserves the award more than anybody.

What's bothering me that 230,000 voiceless human died in tsumani and they decided just to make a movie
about 5 white people and the setting was at Thailand, there is no sign of Thai, they should have made a different perspective than this, but that's forgivable because it's been washed away with it's complexity and it's emotional aspect

You can't deny the fact that this film is a tear-jerker and not one moment that your tear didn't shed, The tsunami sequence, including its initial devastation, is perhaps the best directed. Here, the visual effects, sound design, and Watts’s performance drive and McGregor that stands out most is when he breaks down on the phone to home, it was really heart-wrenching and devastating.

Nominated at the 85th Academy Awards for Best Actress for Naomi Watts. The Impossible was 2012's most finest. and was one of my favorites, A riveting, superbly-acted and heart-wrenching depiction of the events of December 26th, 2004 and The Impossible is simply more than compelling.

5 out of 5 stars
