After surviving a plane crash, weeks of floating on a makeshift raft in the Pacific, and then years of torture as a prisoner of war, Louis Zamperini finally returns home to California, seemingly unbroken. When the war ended, his battle began.
Drama - This sequel to the Angelina Jolie-directed biopic continues the life
story of Louis Zamperini, focusing on his devout adoption of the
Christian faith--and as such is targeted toward faith-based audiences
and is overall a gentler and more family-friendly film. Still, there
are some brief flashbacks to the war combat and torture from the
first film, so parents of young kids should exercise caution. None
of the cast from the original film returns for this one, with
returning characters played by lesser known actors.
PROFANITY: None. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Brief glimpses of beatings and torture with no visible blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol. ACTION: Glimpses of war combat and a plane crash. COMEDY: None.
Roger EbertFull Review Average It is good to see Pureflix attempt a more ambitious mainstream story, and, in a few scenes like Zamperini's first nightmare at home, a more ambitious kind of storytelling. But it is unfortunate that instead of exploring the universal challenges and complexities of forgiveness it stays within the safer confines of preaching salvation to those who have already been persuaded.
