Movie Info

Based on Laura Hillenbrand's bestselling book, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION begins where the hit movie Unbrokenconcludes, sharing the next amazing chapter of the unbelievable true story of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini. Haunted by nightmares of his torment, Louie sees himself as anything but a hero. Then, he meets Cynthia, a young woman who captures his eye-and his heart. Louie's wrathful quest for revenge drives him deeper into despair, putting the couple on the brink of divorce. Until Cynthia experiences Billy Graham's 1949 Los Angeles Crusade where she finds faith in God and a renewed commitment to her marriage and her husband. Now, her most fervent prayer is for God to help Louie find the peace and forgiveness he so desperately needs. UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION brings to life the rest of this powerful real-life story of forgiveness, redemption, and amazing grace.

Critic Reviews for Unbroken: Path to Redemption

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (16)

  • Unnecessarily prolonged, and a fussy addition to a film about Zamperini that already exists.

  • It is unfortunate that instead of exploring the universal challenges and complexities of forgiveness it stays within the safer confines of preaching salvation to those who have already been persuaded.

  • There is a happy ending to the story - but, unfortunately, it doesn't arrive nearly soon enough.

  • Might stand as Cronk's least loathsome cinematic venture yet. It no doubt helps that he didn't write it.

    Top Critic
  • There's a reason that Angelina Jolie's screen adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling Unbroken left out most of the material covered in the book's second half. It just isn't very interesting.

    Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…
  • For the most part... the script hews to the typical dramatic contours of a marriage troubled by unemployment, unresolved anger, and alcoholism-pro forma stuff, too blandly treated to inspire much more than indifference.
