Goofs

When Louis departs for the 1936 Olympics, he boards a train consisting of wooden passenger cars with open platforms. By 1936, virtually all passenger trains had steel cars with enclosed vestibules. The train used in the film would be more correct for the 1890s. See more »

Not as bad as they are all saying
25 January 2015 | by patbradley435See all my reviews

Okay, I've read Hilenbrand's book, which is simply riveting. Louis Zamperini's story is almost unbelievable and the movie cannot possibly do it justice in just over two hours. This could easily have stretched to four hours, but today's cinema-going public haven't got that kind of patience. The film is well done and I was certainly thoroughly entertained by it, knowing in advance it would never be as good as the book, but it certainly didn't leave me cold, demanding my ticket price back. Just watch this for the good movie that it is. Yes it could have been better, but it's a very good attempt by Jolie at the book. I just cannot understand why so many people have given it bad reviews. IMDb puzzles me greatly at times, especially when some awful movies get glowing reviews. Is there some sinister network of people out to sabotage certain movies? I really don't know. This is a very decent movie and Jolie should be proud of it.
