Critic Reviews for Tsunami, The Aftermath

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

The personal stories in Tsunami: The Aftermath are poorly written and are only loosely based on survivor stories.

July 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Of none of the victims of these killer waves could it be said that their character was their fate. Whoever they were, they didn't deserve it.

January 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Well-intentioned, well-shot, well-acted and, well, boring.

A number of family tragedies encountered by Thailand natives and tourists as the '04 tsunami disaster set into the coastal shores of the Indian Ocean. Ejiofor, Roth, Collette and Bonneville give great performances to gain credibility to the touching family, journalist, and diplomatic drama within. The original flooding video shot by a real-life tourist ('04) is seamlessly spliced into the wave scene. Although its an HBO film, it's better than a Hollywood production.
