Zamperini's story in Unbroken can be an inspiration to think about forgiveness.

This is a harrowing and haunting film that leaves you feeling grateful to be alive.

As well intentioned - and patriotic and high minded and valorous - as Jolie's presentation of the film is, it falls short on this one, very major, aspect of the story.

The entertainment value of nonstop, brutal punishment with little hope of personal retribution or adventuresome escape is limited at best.

An incredible story of survival and human endurance told in bland, flat strokes.

Once the indomitable spirit of the man is revealed, the movie finds a sturdy, stirring tone which carries it well through some very tough going.

It's long, uninteresting, and paced like one of those nightmares where you keep trying to run BUT YOU CAN'T! It's that bad.

Beautifully, if sometimes too glossily mounted, Angelina Jolie's sophomore effort as a director, Unbroken, is too poker faced to enjoy either as a dramatic motion picture or a document of an excruciating, unnecessary experience.

Unbroken doesn't penetrate the surface of emotions, remaining a slightly detached, albeit respectful, representation of a potentially touching and inspiring true story.

A solid film with a great story that is ultimately unremarkable in its telling.

Though excelling with casting, Jolie's direction falls short in style and execution; cheesy dissolves and trite biopic techniques are distractingly formulaic, fracturing absorption with Unbroken's brutal and shocking content.

Unbroken should feel like a horror movie (I can't imagine a more frightening existence than Zamperini's time in the prison), but instead feels like a pedestrian, gussied-up biopic.

The posters claim the movie is about "Survival. Resilience. Redemption," but it only gives us the first two, and the finished product is less effective because of it.

The result is the telling of a good story, but not an illuminating one.

This film, based on the biography of the same title, is lukewarm, at best.

A lacklustre and dull film about an incredibly remarkable man.

I assume that for those who have read the book, you will be disappointed in the film. For those that have not read the book, go buy it. It's most assuredly going to be better than the film.

It's all quite beautiful to look at at points, but it never indulges in the emotional weight of what's being portrayed and it manages to make this harrowing, hard-to-believe tale ... boring.

Unbroken is competent at best, and we know that Zamperini was a great man. But he was more than the sum of this movie's parts.

...Roger Deakins' photography is one of the best works that the regular Coen cinematographer has done... [Full review in Spanish]
