The 'Unbroken' Movie is Mostly Accurate

I watched Unbroken last night in preparation to review it on tomorrow’s MovieByte podcast. The movie tells the story of World War II U.S. Army Air Forces hero, Louis Zamperini. This Olympic runner suffered the tyranny of Japanese POW camps, and much more.

I was concerned about the accuracy of the account, seeing that it was based on a true story. According to sources, this movie is mostly accurate — more so than many other biopic films, like The Imitation Game, which I reviewed with TJ Draper on the movie podcast last week.

Check out the Slate’s article if you want to know more about the historical account, and see the movie sometime. It’s good. Can’t wait to review it on the podcast.
