So incredably realistic you experienced being in a disaster that killed a quarter million people. As a parent I was profoundly disturbed by the images and emotional drain this film took on the viewer. Very well done but be prepared to be an emotional wreck all the way through the film. Any person that does not openly cry watching this film is not human.Great film but i wish i has not seen it. Too sad and intense to be called entertainment despite it being so well done.
