Wow - that's some sledgehammer of emotional drainage.....
Expecting a vast improvement on Life Of Pi
Good but painful to watch. Effects were great
Give him a break.
I actually assumed it was a burn regarding his comment 'Effects were great'.
Naomi Watts is awful throughout, the whole thing is unforgivably saccharine given how serious and recent the disaster was and I know much has been made about focusing on a rich white family and seeing the Asian victims as 'background noise' but it really is jarring. One of my least favourite films of recent times.
The tsunami scene is pretty spectacular. Rest can go fuck itself.
this was hugely disappointing
I'm not a big fan of Ms Watts so I wasn't particularly engaged with her character. The fact that it is a true story means that I gave it some leeway regarding the emotional manipulation: I wouldn't have believed the ending if it were fiction.
The best thing for me was the kids' acting - very impressive
