Unbroken | Ratings & Reviews

"Louis Zamperini’s story is an awe-inspiring triumph-of-the-human-spirit tale if there ever was one. The former Italian-American athlete, who was once one of the fastest high school runners ever recorded and competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, survived 47 days adrift at sea in a raft, and was later captured and sent to a Japanese POW camp where he was repeatedly beaten by a sadistic prison guard."

Flicks, Aaron YapFlicks

"The passionate commitment of all involved rarely achieving gut-level impact."


"Jack O’Connell’s, wiry, indefatigable Zamperini holds your attention without effort."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Jolie has assembled an A-list team, but while her film is perfectly competent, it hardly dazzles."

Time OutTime Out

"What the movie ends up in desperate need of is a sense of life made real and palpable through dreadful, transporting details, not a life embalmed in hagiographic awe."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Though high-minded and well-intentioned, there’s something faintly stodgy and safety-first about the endeavour."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Unbroken just piles on the misery without tonal shift, any sense of rise and fall, or any interest in Zamperini’s inner life..."

The DissolveThe Dissolve

"It is a handsome film, bleak and dark and elegantly filmed told with a mixture of intensity and something like restraint, even distance."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"A well acted and visualized, if not fully rendered, telling of a fine book and a great life."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Struggles to bring truth to an unbelievable truth."
