The 33 tells the story of 33 Chilean miners that were trapped in 2010 when a giant boulder blocked the entrance to the mine. The boulder was estimated to be twice the size of the Empire State Building. Mario Sepulveda (Banderas) does his best to keep the miners from fighting with each other and ration the inadequate supplies. The people in charge are loathed to even try a rescue because there was only three days worth of food.

This is an incredible true story with great performances but as a film it just seemed to miss the mark. This is a good movie but I would wait for this one.
