About the Movie: This movie is an intense journey of Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) of being an Olympic track hero and then life takes a turn as he enlists in the military and become a war hero of World War II. As a child he is always in trouble but with the support of his elder brother he gathers up his energy and spirit as he qualifies for the 1936 Olympics. Directed by Angelina Jolie, the movie contains enormous violence, plenty of heart melting scenes as Louis miraculously survives a plane crash in the Pacific Ocean when fighting in World War II. For several days he drifts on the raft with his two fellows (Domhall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock). The more drama adds in the movie when they are caught by the Japanese Navy   and sent to Prison. This is a Prison-of-war-camp. There his spirit and enthusiasm is tested by Japanese prison guards. The movie tries to show the depth of Louis’s intense deprivation and the feel of his war experiences. For a movie being called based on a true story stretches the expected standards to an unexpected level. The Movie is the story of the man that survived through the hard trials of life he and his fellows faced.

Editor’s Comments: With the fame of Laura Hillenbrand’s New York Times – Bestselling book “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption”, the expectations from the movie ‘Unbroken’ are high as it seems that the movie will provide hopping chapter of Louis’s Life. Let’s see if it matches the expectations of the audience.
