"The Impossible" is what you'd expect from a movie about the Asian tsunami of 2004. Heart-wrenching footage of a family struggling to survive, both during the tsunami and the grueling 48 hours afterward.
It's based on the true story of one family of five, where miraculously every member survived. It is very emotional of course. The child actors are directed beautifully.
But there's not a single surprising moment in the film. Not one. This is a very simple movie.
