QUICK TAKE:
Drama: Following a partial mine collapse, thirty-three men find themselves trapped thousands of feet underground, all while those up top try to rescue them.
PLOT:
It's 2010 and Luis "Don Lucho" Urzua (LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS) is the shift foreman at a privately owned gold mine located in the Atacama Desert of San Jose, Chile. Tasked with keeping the miners safe, he's concerned with recent signs of shifting within the mountain, but the site supervisor blows off his concerns. Accordingly, Don Lucho leads a team of miners down thousands of feet into the mine, including family man Mario Sepulveda (ANTONIO BANDERAS); Elvis impersonator Edison Pena (JACOB VARGAS); and Yonni Barrios (OSCAR NUNEZ) who's trying to balance his wife and mistress. There's also homeless alcoholic Dario Segovia (JUAN PABLO RABA) who's estranged from his older sister, Maria (JULIETTE BINOCHE); veteran miner Mario Gomez (GUSTAVO ANGARITA) who's days away from retirement; father-to-be Alex Vega (MARIO CASAS); and Bolivian newcomer Carlos Mamani (TENOCH HUERTA) who's apprehensive about going down into the mine.

It turns out his concerns are justified when an enormous rock -- with twice the mass of the Empire State Building -- slips and crushes the men's only way of escape. With only three days worth of food for him and the other thirty-two trapped men, Mario assumes the role of leader and rations the food, all while they hope for help from above.

Knowing the outcome of this could affect his political career, Chilean President Sebastian Pinera (BOB GUNTON) sends his relatively new minster of mining, Laurence Golborne (RODRIGO SANTORO), to the scene to coordinate the rescue attempt and serve as a liaison between the government and the miners' families who've arrived on the scene.

With mining engineer Andre Sougarret (GABRIEL BYRNE) showing up to lead the rescue drilling attempts, everyone above and below ground hopes that the miners can be saved, something that becomes increasingly uncertain as the days and then weeks pass by.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's possible some older teens might show some interest, especially if they're familiar with the true story.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For a disaster sequence and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
