I saw this in cinema TWICE. That's ONE EXTRA TIME People! In case you sleep-surfed the internet and found yourself on the reviews of Amazon to a film you've never heard of, The Impossible is based around one family who are on Holiday in Thailand when the Tragic Tsunami of 2004 hit. Before seeing the film, I'd watched the trailer and thought 'Wow, that looks good. The special effects look amazing', but I also thought 'After the Tsunami has hit, what happens for the rest of the film? It could get really boring...'
Well, that was wrong and partly because I never really understood what happened that day. I had no idea how many people were killed (and injured). It's not just Water, is it? Debris potentially hitting you at high speed. Could be fatal.
The cast is fantastic. The acting is as good as it gets, particularly from new-to-film Actor Tom Holland who takes centre stage as eldest Son, Lucas. This is no bore fest. It's one of those great films that leaves you pondering your own life and feeling grateful for your family and loved ones. A very emotional and touching film. I really wanted the family to come together again. I'll be buying this when it's released.
Thanks for reading.
