Film review: The Impossible

Film review: The Impossible

Rated M.

Images of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami that killed more than 230,000 people in 14 countries will always be haunting. This film tries to re-create the impossible, attempting to portray the scale of the devastation without Hollywood spin – and it comes close. Telling the true story of the Alvarez Belon family’s experiences in Thailand, it’s well acted by Naomi Watts and youngster Tom Holland is a great new talent.

In cinemas January 24.

Rating: 4/5
