November 16, 2018
All the dramatic cues are there, and many of the faces convey an eagerness that is admirable, but every simpering scene of false sincerity moves to the rhythm of some shallow after-school special.

Glowing with effort above its pedigree, the film is an earnest and very commendable exploration.

This inspiring film, directed by Harold Cronk, is replete with themes of forgiveness, family, and faith.

It sounds so simple. And in Unbroken: Path to Redemption, it's portrayed exactly that way. You don't need a whole movie for that kind of experience. All you have to do is read the title.
September 17, 2018
A film of such cornball earnestness that you almost long for the fetishized torture of Jolie's film.

Unbroken: Path to Redemption's moving story offers a spiritual complement to its more action-packed predecessor.

September 15, 2018
Good story about a great survivor. Still the movie needs some star power to lure in an audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
September 15, 2018
Unnecessarily prolonged, and a fussy addition to a film about Zamperini that already exists.
September 14, 2018
Faith-based sequel has violent moments, lots of drinking.

September 14, 2018
Worthwhile religious movies explore the implications and the lived experience of faith or perhaps illuminate the reality of life without it. Path to Redemption has no interest in the first and isn't up to the second.

September 14, 2018
A preachy, perfunctory postscript to Angelina Jolie's 2014 bombastic biopic of Louie Zamperini.
September 14, 2018
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.
September 13, 2018
Unbroken: Path to Redemption contains more good than bad. Director Harold Cronk's stylistic flourishes only occasionally enhance the story, but they rarely impede the telling of it. The resulting film is competent and sometimes compelling.
September 13, 2018
Might stand as Cronk's least loathsome cinematic venture yet. It no doubt helps that he didn't write it.
September 13, 2018
There's something admirable about ... trying to tell the tale of this section of Zamperini's life ... It's also a shame, though, that the filmmakers aren't quite up to that task.

September 13, 2018
It's as if the film doesn't trust the audience to identify with the real man or his real salvation experience and so softens him in some places and ridiculously overdramatizes him in others until he feels like no particular person.
September 13, 2018
Without that internal struggle, Unbroken: Path to Redemption is little more than a living billboard for Billy Graham.
