The Unbroken Movie Trailer has been released last July, and fans could not be any more excited.

However, there are still some, or many critics and spectators who instead of getting excited, felt the opposite.

The trailer, which can be found here: shows the lead actor, Jack O'Connell, enduring the hardships his character went through, accompanied by the usual sad soundtrack you woud expect from an inspirational movie.

According to,

"There's no doubt that the trailer gives plenty of attention to the darker moments of Zamperini's experiences - the scene where soldiers line up to punch him in the face should be enough of an indication of the terrible conditions that he endured - but there's something about the way the clip is cut together that makes Unbroken look a bit, well, cheesy. Maybe it's the swelling violins in the background, maybe it's the dramatic text overlay, or maybe it's the washed-out filter that the first half of the trailer has, but the trailer gives off the impression thatUnbroken is just a generic, corny tearjerker."

For the plot synopsis taken from,

"Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces 'Unbroken,' an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis 'Louie' Zamperini (Jack O'Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII-only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand's ('Seabiscuit: An American Legend') enormously popular book, 'Unbroken' brings to the big screen Zamperini's unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit."

The Unbroken Movie Trailer stars Jack O'Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi, Garrett Hedlund, and Finn Wittrock, and is set to be released on December 25, 2014 under Universal Pictures.
