“The 33” is a pleasing movie about a scary situation. The performances as very good, and credit Riggen for making the movie version of the story compelling. It’s unimaginable what these men had to go through, and it’s remarkable that they overcame the odds. It’s a feel good story that plays good on film, but it’s more than that. It’s a look at how difficult and scary the mining profession is. The struggle people have to make a living in countries like Chile. Ultimately it’s the families that matter the most, it’s the bond and love they have for each other. The 33 men were brothers when they went in and till the very end of the 69 days they were trapped in the cave, and this movie smartly centers around that concept.
