Now what I have to say about this movie. It was fantastic. I can't even believe how good this movie was. It was touching and heartbreaking all at the same time. I was teary eyed through out the entire movie but there is one moment with Ewan's character Henry (you'll know it when it comes) that made me just fall apart.
Naomi Watts did an amazing job as the mother and her performance was just phenomenal. She was powerful as a mother trying to save her son.
This has to be Ewan McGregor's best film. I've seen a lot of his work but this one is by far the best use of his acting talents. He was so moving as the father searching for his family and like I said, he has a moment in this movie that just makes you want to reach out to him.
But I have to say that some of the best acting was done by Tom Holland who played Lucas. The maturity level this character shows through the turmoil of the Tsunami was amazing and rather uplifting. He was just a powerhouse of an actor in this movie and is definitely to be watched for in the future.
Samuel Joslin and Oaklee Pendergast were amazing little actors and did a great job and have an absolutely wonderful scene with Tom Holland's character Lucas.
Beyond that the sound and special effect of this movie were amazing and a little terrifying. You also can't seem to fathom what all these people went through in 2004 when the tsunami hit and at times it is a painful thing to watch.
Would I watch this movie again? Probably but it would be hard to, though knowing the end probably makes it easier to watch. (I remember hearing about the family way before actually seeing the movie and knew the outcome going in.) I would recommend this movie to anyone who will watch it.
