What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Munya Vomo It's the young cast who really make waves.
Paul Boekkooi Spaanse regiseur why hóé.
Deborah Young Emotional tsunami
Christy Lemire The Impossible is about as subtle as a wall of water.
Peter Travers The film is a remarkable visual achievement, made more affecting by the depth the actors bring to their characters. The go-for-broke intensity and emotional layering Watts brings to her role is an acting triumph. And McGregor matches her in a performance of ferocity and feeling.
C. Fuchs From the harrowing special effects to the strong performances, The Impossible does the seemingly impossible in making a heartwarming story come out of an awful tragedy.
Tomatometer The screenplay isn't quite as powerful as the direction or the acting, but with such an astonishing real-life story at its center, The Impossible is never less than compelling.
