The Unusual Suspects will not be defeated. You can show us one thousand mediocre historical films and we will not be deterred. You can hit us over the head again and again with heavy-handed sentimentality, but we will never break. Angelina Jolie takes time out of her busy child collecting schedule to direct this biopic centering on Olympic runner/WWII POW Louis Zamperini.

Chris, Brian, and Elliott set up camp and gather for this Highly Suspect Review of Unbroken. If you see only one inspiring World War II biopic this season…see The Imitation Game. But if you see Unbroken, break yourself off a piece of this review!
