Unbroken.
« on: December 27, 2014, 08:06:21 pm »
Took my nephew to see it today.  Decent movie, but go read the book.  In fairness to Angelina Jolie, I think the movie would have to be at least six hours long to do the book any justice.

The book was one of the best I've read in the last 10 years. I'm never too interested in adapted movies, they never measure up to the original.

Movies/ Books comparison is an Unbroken promise of reviewer format . The hatred of the squinty-eyed Jap punishing the "story hero " brings both audiences to their unbroken hatred for retribution to the  bully oppressor . If I was a JAP watching this movie with my wife , I would have fvcking walked out !
