It stars: Garrett Hedlund, Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Finn Wittrock and Miyavi. We’ve posted blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Joe Neumaier at the New York Daily News, gave it a great 100 score, stating: “When you get through it, though, you can’t help but feel uplifted by this tough-skinned movie that can stand with the best muscular wartime dramas in the American movie canon.”

Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it an 88 grade, saying: “Jolie has an army of craftsmen in her corner, notably camera poet Roger Deakins (No Country for Old Men). But it’s her vision that gives Unbroken a spirit that soars. In honoring Louis’ endurance, she does herself proud.”

Michael O’Sullivan from the Washington Post, gave it a 75 grade. He said: ” Unbroken may not exactly be mired in sanctimony, but it’s standing, almost up to its ankles, in an unhealthy sense that its subject — about whose simple humanity the film otherwise goes to great lengths to illuminate — is a candidate for sainthood.”

Todd McCarthy from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 70 score, stating: ” A great true story is telescoped down to a merely good one in Unbroken. After a dynamite first half-hour, Angelina Jolie’s accomplished second outing as a director slowly looses steam.”

Chris Nashawaty over at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67 score, stating: “It’s moving, admirable, and occasionally exhilarating. What it’s missing is the one thing that could always be counted on with Jolie as a star: the spark of danger.”

Brian Tallerico from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 63 score. He stated: ” It’s one of those inspirational Hollywood dramas about which there isn’t anything “overtly wrong” with it. It’s well-cast, it looks great, it has that intense centerpiece in the raft, and it certainly conveys a true story worth telling. And yet I keep coming back to that beautiful sunrise that opens the film. It’s just too damn pretty.”
