The 33 (2015)

A retelling of the Chile mining rescue. Sadly, these accidents happen around the world almost daily, and most of the stories are left untold because they don’t have as happy an ending as this one did.

Some parts are overly dramatic. Others were unnecessary and should have been edited out. The movie picks up once contact is made and the world comes together to get them out. It’s quite remarkable how long these poor men managed to stay alive underground, which makes their rescue all the more emotional when they finally got out.

Rating: C
