Seen “Unbroken?” Then You Need to See This

Relevant Church Rochester NY_09

I read the book “Unbroken.” I loved it. We went to see the movie. It was a well-done movie that was painful to watch. And I believe they did a great job of telling the story, but at the end there are a couple of phrases on the screen that talk about Louie’s spiritual transformation. I appreciated that it was acknowledged, but I wish they would have shown that part instead of just mentioning in text at the end of the movie. But it is too easy to be a critic. Overall, I was very pleased with the movie. And wish they would do a part 2 – telling about what happened when he got back from being a prisoner of war. That’s the better part of the story!
If you’ve seen the movie but haven’t read the book – you really need to know the rest of the story. So – please watch THIS video. Here are five great reasons to give 28 minutes of your life to this video:
  • It will take less time than the movie (28 minutes vs. 2 hours)
  • It is free (vs. $10.00 or more)
  • It gives you the spiritual dimension of Louie’s story (so much more satisfying than a story of the enduring human spirit)
  • You will love and appreciate Louie more after this 28 minutes than after the 2 hours of the movie.
  • It will grow your faith in the power of the Gospel. originally posted the video HERE. As always, if you can’t see the video above (because you receive this via email) – click HERE to watch it.
  1. Zamperini’s son wrote an interesting piece about his father’s perspective on the way his faith was portrayed in the film ( Here’s a section that connects with what you’ve posted in the past about Christian films:

    “Unbroken tells my Dad’s story the way he told it: chronicling all he lived through so that what he did after becoming a Christian—forgiving his captors—would have the most resonance with audiences of all faiths, and no faith at all…That was his greatest hope for the film version of Unbroken: not that it would be applauded by fellow Christians, although he certainly would have been honored and humbled by their appreciation; but that it would be seen by non-Christians drawn to a rousing epic about the indomitable human spirit who, when the credits have finished rolling, might just discover there’s a whole lot more to his story than that.”
