In the coal yard where Louis was forced to pick up the lumber timber, at one point when Watanabe ordered his soldier to shoot if he dropped it, it was clear that the lumber is fake; and it's more like made of paper than timber. See more »

Jack O'Connell is outstanding..
25 December 2014 | by rebeccaspurlockSee all my reviews

Lets just say I just saw a great movie about loyalty, courage, survival and redemption. Angelina Jolie has fantastic directing skills and its Oscar worthy. Jack O'Connell knocks his performance out of the park and he's proved himself with this great performance along with his performances in "Starred Up" and "'71". He embodies the characteristics of Louis Zamperini and the great wonderful life he lived. Jai Courtney had a small role, but really good surprisingly, can't wait to see him as Kyle Reese in next summer's Terminator reboot. The movie slowed at a point but picked it up and blew me away, O'Connell gives an Oscar worthy performance, but given the competition it's unlikely. Who cares though? This is one of 2014's best films and you'll see it at the Oscars I promise you that.
