Movie Review: 'The 33'

Parents need to know that "The 33" is the intense but inspiring true story of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for more than two months. The collapse of the mine is portrayed in a very tense, scary, loud sequence; later, there are several scenes of interpersonal conflict (which could upset some kids) as miners struggle to survive with little food and water and as worried loved ones angrily press the government to rescue the trapped men. One character is an alcoholic who goes through detox while underground. Despite the serious subject matter, the movie has strong themes of support, teamwork, faith against the odds, and persistence, and tweens and up may find the dignity with which most characters conduct themselves uplifting.

Rated: PG-13

Running Time: 120 minutes
