Very well done indeed. One of the best recent movies I have seen. Appropriate for nearly everyone, with parental mentoring.

Very intense and engaging. You find yourself at the edge of your seat hoping for a positive outcome for these victims of Nature's fury. Strong film.

Excellent movie. Captured the true to life experience of one surviving family. If I was mortally wounded I would appreciate transportation to medical aid. No complaints here.

I cried like a baby the whole way through. You gotta see this movie. Have tissues ready!!

Since this movie is based on a true story and the special effects are so intense, it is a bit difficult to watch at times. The film is quite an emotional undertaking, but the compassionate nature of humans is an encouraging theme throughout the movie. Excellent acting!

Simply an unforgettable movie which shows the compassion we all have when we are really in need of help. I want to warn you, if you are like me and the sight of blood can make you turn blue, then skip this one. The movie is very intense and my wife and I were on the edge of our seats rooting for the family in The Impossible.

Great movie. Unbelievable that anyone survived this catastrophe

A decent movie in terms of bringing the tsunami and particularly the confusion afterwards as people swept away attempted to find one another. Some good tear-jerking moments, but as another reviewer noted, [SPOILER ALERT] I think the ending (the reunited family leaving on a large private plane) was a mistake; the ending could easily have been after they were reunited in the hospital or maybe even in showing them safely at home reflecting back on events or something. I think the movie also focused a little too much on not only this wealthy white family, but the white tourists, and not so much the locals. Obviously this event had a huge and devastating impact on the local population, and it would have been better, in my opinion, to at least give that aspect more screen time.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: This film revolves around the occurrence and ensuing aftermath of a tsunami. The event itself can be horrifying and emotionally traumatizing to some.
