The Impossible Reviews
The Impossible is a character driven biographical drama about a family that gets lost in a natural disaster occurred at 2004 in Indian Ocean. Bayona's excellence is projecting the highest of emotions where you float in its bubble of bravado up till he pins you down with a reality that conveys a straight out message from nature by narrowing down the priorities and leaves you in an awe of its abyss feeling.
The plethora of emotions that it is flooded with, can be difficult to grasp as its pathos premise has the potential to melt you down within few seconds (the first act between Watts and Holland is mesmerizing) and with a cast of caliber like such justifies the script with their performance. The first half is specifically brilliant, as its metaphor are subtle and genuinely effective where the passion of the project meets the weaving of the craft boosting up the essence with a stronger impact.
Despite of having such a poignant concept, Bayona's finesses never manipulates the viewers just to connect, but tells an honest and uncompromising tale. The background score isn't that effective, along with the cinematography but the editing is definitely its strength along with the camera work that is manually handled in order to offer a more personal touch.
As mentioned earlier, the performance objective is what fuels this sometimes overstretched vision and Watts is the responsible person to contact for it is one of the best portrayal of her career where she is supported brilliantly by Holland and McGregor. The narrative is sharp, adaptive and gripping since it focuses the family drama that is fabricated to speak volume metaphorically.
Lo Imposible is quite possible but it comes with a manual book, and fortunately Bayona has it memorized by heart and now watch him ace this test.
The film that I will do a review is called "THE IMPOSSIBLE" . This film is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona. The impossible is a disaster and drama film. The film setting is on Thailand in the film,but in the real life is in New York.
In this film the actors and the actresses act very well . The Impossible took 26 weeks so that is like 6 months and a week.the actors they are well known in the movies . They are Naomi Watts that in the film is Maria, Tom Holland that interprets Lucas and Ewan Mcgregor that in the film is Henry . In the movie the acting is amazing and they gave a good performance.
In the movie happens a big disaster that a lot of people died because of this tragedy. The story is excellent and this film is based on real facts so imagine that. Also the film teaches us something that even there was a disaster you have to fight for your life and never give up.
The cinematography in this moment was cool because the quality of the film was wonderful.
talking about soundtrack, it was amazing because is like that was happening in the real life . And about the scenes I have no words to describe it.
If there was an scale from 1 to 10 the grade is 10 because is a really good film.Fans obviously are going to be happy.People should watch this movie because it teaches a lot of things and how I told before is a really good film. So the lesson is never give up. :)
The eldest boy Lucas played by Tom Holland is superb, and Naomi Watts terrific. I much more enjoyed their first half. McGregor and the second half are a lot weaker. The narrowness of focus looks increasingly awkward as the film goes on. The travel insurance advert at the end, extremely bizarre.
Based on the true story of a family on Christmas holiday in Thailand in 2004, The Impossible is a short and taut film about human response to unimaginable circumstances, and hard choices in the face of gutwrenching crisis.
Tear jerker. Especially if you have kids, i imagine. Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor give beautiful performances and WHAAATTT..? The kid actors are very solid, including our very own SPIDERMAN, Tom Holland.
A very personal take on a disaster movie that will have you trying to swallow your heart. Good stuff, a little hard to watch.
"...Even if it's the last thing we do...." That scene crushed me.
(I THOUGHT, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY DID/DIDN'T, SO THAT'S NOT A SPOILER)
.....but the film's screenplay made me think that they might not reunite. I almost cried at times thanks to the incredible performances of Ewan, Naomi and future spidey Tom Holland. And I really loved the part where some of the characters showed similarities in their personalities by doing the exact same thing. I'm glad the film pointed that out.
