Storyline

In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation - and each other - as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety. Written by The American Film Company

Against the Sun, beautiful movie and great performances.
25 December 2014 | by MaayBSee all my reviews

Before I start the review I would like to thank Kurt Graver for the early digital copy.

I just finished watching this movie and I must say I'm surprised. The performances were great, the second I saw Tom Felton I remembered Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter) but I have to admit he did an amazing job playing Tony and I immediately forgot about Malfoy. So congratulations to him, Jake Abel and Garret Dillahunt for their amazing performances. I loved the make up, it seemed very real. And of course, the story was amazing. Sometimes this kind of movies with historical events might be a little boring but not Against the Sun. I enjoyed every minute of it and I hope I can see it again soon on the big screen. Congratulations to everyone who made this movie and keep working in great projects like Against the Sun and Parkland.
