Movie Info

In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation - and each other - as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety. (C) The American Film Company

Critic Reviews for Against The Sun

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

All three actors turn in solid, committed performances despite physically limiting surroundings, even as you're left with the inescapable feeling that this raft has sailed.

Director Brian Falk, who co-wrote the script with Mark David Keegan, worked well with cinematographer Petr Cikhart to keep the story visually interesting, despite the limitations placed on the tale by the monotonous setting.

A groaningly tedious survival story that will at least leave you with a renewed commitment to wearing sunscreen.

January 22, 2015 | Full Review…

The three actors deliver solid performances while getting completely under the sun-blistered skin of the downed pilots' characters. Definitely an inspirational tale.

November 8, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Made on a fraction of the budget, "Against the Sun" works more effectively than Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken."

May 22, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Eventually all the movie has is the talent and chemistry of the three actors; fortunately, that's enough to keep it afloat.
