Louis Zamperini's story took almost 60 years to come to the bigscreen, and it's enough to hold four movies — parts “Chariots of Fire,” “Life of Pi,” “The Deer Hunter” and “Coming Home.” Angelina Jolie's star power may have finally gotten the film made, but she directs with a passion and affection for her subject, and a keen eye for action sequences. Condensing Laura Hillenbrand's epic book was no easy task, but the script manages to hit all the major points and captures the soul of Zamperini's story. And the acting ensemble is stellar, led by a revelatory Jack O'Connell as Zamperini and first-time actor Miyavi as his WWII Japanese POW camp tormenter.
