Movie Review – Unbroken: Path to Redemption

I truly do enjoy faith-based movies, but Unbroken left me a little flat. The acting was pretty good,  and the directing was acceptable, however, since I didn’t read Laura Hillenbrand’s book Path To Redemption, I can’t comment on how closely the book was followed.[pullquote] It was interesting that Billy Graham’s grandson played his grand father (Billy Graham) in this movie, but his charisma is no match to his father’s.[/pullquote]

I didn’t feel that the two main characters, Louis and Cynthia, had much chemistry together. I never really felt their passion for their religion, nor their passion for each other. Nor did the supporting cast offer up much for us to care about.

I was pleased that, once again, PTSD was addressed, even though at that particular time it was referred to as ‘shell-shocked’. [pullquote position=”right”]Of recent, we’ve seen a number of movies addressing PTSD, and this is a good thing. A movie can give the public a visual of how devastating this condition is, and of course the more we know, the more we can help.[/pullquote] History has shown us that, at least every generation or so, we will continue to be welcoming home our vets.

About the Peetimes: Unbroken is very much a drama driven movie, but does have periods of restraint that make for good Peetimes. I recommended the first Peetime, because it actually gives you slightly more than 4 minutes to break.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack.  Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.)  We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, 1917, and Jumanji: The Next Level, etc.  You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
