Saw an advanced screening of Unbroken last night. My movie review: not nearly as good as the incredible book but worth seeing. Angelina Jolie does great job directing, and Jack O’Connell as Louis Zamperini is fantastic. Book readers need to adjust their expectations as one contrived scene takes away from the overall feeling.
But I’ll say this: I didn’t look at my watch once. The movie flew by. (Thank goodness it’s not another three-hour movie—it’s only 2 hours, 17 minutes.) It is NOT appropriate for kids under 15—lots of violence. I definitely covered my eyes many times.
