The Impossible

In December 2004, close-knit family Maria, Henry and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand. But the day after Christmas, the idyllic holiday turns into an incomprehensible nightmare when a terrifying roar rises from the depths of the sea, followed by a wall of black water that devours everything in its path. Though Maria and her family face their darkest hour, unexpected displays of kindness and courage ameliorate their terror.

  • Andres Gomez: Incredible story with remarkable performances by Naomi Watts and Tom Holland and amazing staging.

    However, Bayona repeats the same mistakes from other movies like “The Orphanage” when he creates an uneasy situation through some unexplained weird behavior.
