That said, I did not really love this movie. For sure the frightening ten minutes of tsunami terror was amazing and troubling all at once. The survival scenes were touching and scary. Yet there was an emptiness that came because of a focus on a few people when so many thousands were devastated. In truth, I think that this story would have been a great segment for 60 Minutes. The story was worth telling but I am not sure that it needed over two hours of screen time. I thought that it was just okay and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★.
