Dozens of people from Copiapó, Chile, work in the San José mine. The owner ignores the warnings of the failing stability of the mine, which collapses a short time later. The only path inside the mine is completely blocked, and the thirty-three miners manage to get to the rescue chamber. They discover that the radio is useless, the medical kit is empty, the ventilation shafts lack the required ladders, and there is very little stored food. Mario Sepúlveda becomes the leader of the miners, dividing the foods rations and stopping the outbursts of violence and despair. The mine company does not attempt any rescue, and the relatives of the miners gather around the gates..

This film deserves a 9, because of it's subject. I think if it was up to me, this would have gotten an 8. But I guess the judges have a bit of a bias in their hands. The 33 is a wonderful story about a young man, who suffers from a mental illness, which at one point, will kill him. To show the character's, it has to be very powerful. It can't just be the father that would suffer. It has to be the loved ones, who have to endure it. There are a lot of scenes in the film where I was moved to tears. But to get to the emotional part of the film, you have to watch the film multiple times, just to keep up with the story. And of course, you have to remember that this is an American movie. It's not a documentary or a foreign film. I think the judge of this movie, has to be George Clooney. He is amazing in the film. I think the director, Josh Singer, did a very good job, as well. The cinematography and the story are very well done. All of the actors did a good job. The thing that I liked the most about the film, was how it's very well executed. Not just on the subject, but also on the acting. And especially, the background score. It's very powerful. It's as if they have chosen to build a musical score, which would be very powerful, as a whole, and it has to be beautiful, because you can hear the music, in every moment. I think it is a great use of music, and I think it's great how this story is told. It's very emotionally powerful. And I also liked the ending, which I think the judges of this film did a very good job. It shows that, if you've been through a terrible experience, and can handle it, you should, and you should be able to handle it again. But if you don't have that strength, then there are things you can do, to try and overcome it. The 33 is a great film. I think you should see it, if you haven't already.

The performance of every single actor in this movie is superb. I didn't expect such a good movie from this one. And finally, I am so happy I did.I think this is the first movie where I have ever have a reaction to the end of the movie. I was so shocked by it that I cried like a baby. You know, this is the movie that made me cry. It makes me cry every time I watch it. So for those who didn't see it, you need to go and see it.

Although I am a staunch democrat, I have to admit I am somewhat partial to the democratic-minded types who have a pretty hard time for most things. I can hardly get past the news of a former president of the United States turning in to a dictator and murdering thousands of civilians. I had my fair share of dirt on George W. Bush, but the one that really got to me was the fact that I had heard him and his family so often on the radio, and so often talked about his "hope and change" message. So I finally decided to give him a chance to act in a movie. And he did a wonderful job of it. Now, I am not saying that he is a great actor, but he did a very good job. He also reminded me of that movie Forrest Gump (not that there is much comparison there). What he said and did reminded me of Forrest Gump. The characters in the movie were very likable. The wife was likeable. The children were very likable. I thought it was a great movie. I loved it, and I am not ashamed to admit that I was really rooting for him to be the president. I think that it is a good thing that there is a lesson to be learned from this movie. That it shows us that it is okay to lose your own life for a good cause. And that if you really want to have some semblance of dignity, the government and some organization should do more than just give you the keys to the White House, and that the people should be given the right to vote on their president. This movie shows us that it is okay to get murdered for a good cause.

I was at the preview on Thursday the 17th, and I was actually quite disappointed at how this film turned out. I expected to see a really great movie, but what I got was a movie that was neither. It was the first time I have ever walked out of a theater of a film after 90 minutes, and I walked out of this one feeling like I wanted to strangle my own eyes out. How do you go from a movie that's very highly anticipated to a mediocre movie that is a TV movie? The acting is terrible. The pacing is completely slow. The character development is half-assed. Everything feels like a stinker. There was not one character I cared about in this movie. The dialogue is horrible. The story is non-existent. It's just a stinker. It makes you wonder how people can make films like this nowadays. I'm sure it's a deliberate move, but I really don't think so. I don't think anybody can make a movie that's worse than this one. I think this is the worst film I have seen in a long time. A definite waste of time. Don't watch it. Go rent Trolls, which is more entertaining, because the story is better and the actors are good. In the end, the story, the acting, and the pacing, the whole thing is a bad movie. Just go watch an hour of a TV movie instead. I give this film a rating of 2 out of 10. It is at best a "3".

People have no idea what the French Revolution was all about, nor do they know much about the Queen Mother, Marie Antoinette, whose life was a bizarre combination of child abuse, imprisonment, sexual abuse, and exile from France to the United States to raise the money for the French Revolution. One of the reasons that people are not aware of the drama of Marie Antoinette is because she is only mentioned once in the movie. For this reason I was not very familiar with her life, which I am sure is true for many who have never heard of her, and certainly not for people who live here in the U.S. Marie Antoinette is a woman who gave her all to the revolution, and who is remembered today for her talent and leadership, as well as for the attention she brought to her husband. On the surface, she seems very much like a good woman, but there is also a part of her that is very much like a devil. The movie is beautifully filmed. The acting is top notch, and everyone seems to have been on the same page in the production of the film. I was moved by the scenes of Marie Antoinette taking refuge in the forest and walking around the countryside, a character that is rich with emotion and power, who is in essence, a child of France, who made her own choices. The look of the movie is beautiful and shows what I believe was the intention of the director. The whole movie is well-made. It should have been much better than it was, which is why it is a great movie to watch on a rainy day.

For me, seeing this film at the time of its release, and seeing all the wonderful reviews I had read about it, I was very excited to see this movie. Although I knew the plot and what was going to happen, I had no idea that would be the end of it. So there were two things that I really loved about it, and I couldn't help but fall in love with it, it was a story about love. The two things I loved the most was the love story, and the politics. I loved that these people couldn't just choose a man to rule them or make them happy and it didn't matter. They knew what they were doing, they knew they had to fight for the things they believed in and to protect their freedom and liberty. That they knew it wasn't for their personal happiness or feelings of being happy. The politics was a little strange but I like it, because when you get into a society like this and you don't feel as if you can do what you feel you need to do, you feel the need to create a new life for yourself. If you don't want to be a slave for your freedom, if you want to be free and do what you want, then that is what you should do. I could have written this movie any way, if I had wanted to write a movie, I could have written any other film, but this one just went with the flow, and I liked it that way. The script, the story, the acting, everything. I know I'm a very picky film person, and I usually can't stand over acting and the other stuff in movies, but this is just perfect. One of my favorite films of all time, I don't like over acting, I like them. The movie is so deep and interesting. It has everything that I'm looking for in a good movie, not to mention that the music in this film is incredible. I can't think of any other film that has the music score that makes me think of the scenes. I'm very impressed with the film, and I would like to see more movies that have these kinds of stories. I also really liked the way the film was edited. I don't know how they did it, but I'm very impressed with that. It was very interesting. This film has all the elements that make a great movie, and I'm sure if you're not into it, you won't like it, but I'm sure you'll love it. This is one of the best movies I've seen, and I don't think anyone could tell me what they liked better. This is my favorite movie ever, and I have been so very impressed with this movie. This is a movie that you have to see, and you will never regret seeing it, because you won't be able to find a better movie, and that is what I want you to do. The best part about this movie is the story, and the acting, and the music, and the special effects. I give it 9/10.

The film itself is really powerful and the story is not dull at all. It doesn't tell you how horrible people can be to one another, the film actually shows how people treat each other even in the most quiet and uneventful moments. The cinematography was great, the costumes, and the scenery was amazing. It is a very dark and depressing film, which I think should be so, but it is also a story of hope and what love can do for someone who is in need. I really recommend it, I really liked it. A 9/10.

The 33 is a well-done and intelligent biopic of John F. Kennedy. The film is factual, but it has some dramatizing in it. I watched it with out the expectation of learning anything about JFK, and it gave me something different to think about. It made me want to know more about JFK. The acting was very good. The writing was excellent, especially considering the subject matter. The direction was top notch, and the cinematography was terrific. The music is haunting and powerful. Overall, it is an excellent film that should be seen. But it's a bit slow, and that's the problem. But the positives outweigh the negatives. I loved it!

I saw this movie the day it was released, and at first, I didn't like it. I was only 11 when I saw it, and I had some issues with it. It was pretty dark and hard to watch. When I went to the Video store, I asked the store associate if they had the movie, and he said no. I thought it was too dark. I didn't like the flashbacks too much. Some movies don't need them. In the end, I liked this movie. I thought it was very realistic, and when they were fighting, it was very intense. It really showed what it was like to be in a prison, and how people would do things to make the time go by. The acting was great. I think I liked it better than some of my other movies, but that's just me.

I really liked this film. I can't really say that it was "great", because I think it was really good. I like the way the film was shot, the performances were good, and the style of the film. The film was better than I thought it would be, because I was expecting something completely different. I'm not saying that the film is a masterpiece, but I think that it was very good. I was worried about the ending because I thought that it would be a bit boring, but the ending was great. I really think that the film has a great message in it. It was not an easy film to watch, but it was very much worth it. I give this film 9/10.

I just returned from seeing this film at the Academy Awards and, while I was somewhat disappointed, I am happy to say that I really did enjoy it. There was a bit of a lull in the second act, but the rest of the film is well worth your time. The first half hour of the film has Martin Scorsese giving us some important information about the character. It is not really necessary, but I think it adds to the film's impact and is a good addition. The second half is a mix of facts and myths. Most of it is true, some of it is more myth than fact, and some is fiction, but it is more myth than fact. I believe that is the way the real JFK,LBJ and Nixon looked, but they are not the real men. They have been either exaggerations or misrepresentations, and I have seen so many examples of them over the years, that I can not help but laugh when I hear people compare them to the real men. My favorite scene in the film is the one where the five men ride on their horses up to the White House to see the president. There are some great shots of the White House, the different sizes of the rooms, and the actual footage of the President being inaugurated. If you are a big fan of the real men, you will enjoy the scene. But if you are not familiar with them, it is a great film to watch and watch again.

I went to see this movie with a view to being entertained but was really looking forward to seeing an honest portrayal of what life was like in the time of the Mexican revolution. I am glad that I went to see it. The movie contains several sections of footage from the Mexican Revolution, with a good mix of highlights from various points in the story. It is not a biography of the revolution as such, but of the entire revolution. There is some commentary from the Mexican government on what happened during that period of time, and also from people on both sides of the conflict, the likes of Osvaldo Salinas, Che Guevara, Diego Rivera, and so on. Most of the time, I was in a state of confusion as to what the movie was about, as I was not totally convinced that I understood it, but I knew that it was very interesting and worth my time.

Greetings from Lithuania. "The Greatest Story Never Told" (2016) is a true film, a film about history, about struggle, about overcoming obstacles. As a modern film it is one of the best I ever seen, and this is the best thing of all. This film is of the greatest great art that I know, a truly amazing film. "The Greatest Story Never Told" (2016) has been described as "a real-life profile of the tumultuous life of real-life comic-book artist Jack Kirby". It is not my best description, it is not only the best, but the best I have ever seen. The people who gave that criticism have a good point, because there are also those who hated the film because it does not talk about Kirby. And it is true. It does not say anything about Kirby at all. Everything about Kirby is just in this film, nothing more, nothing less. The people who were giving that criticism should have read the script first, if they are in the mood to read it. It is not a comic-book movie, but a real-life biography. It is about Kirby as a real-life person, a real-life comic-book artist, a real-life politician, a real-life-actor, a real-life-musician. Yes, all these real people, a great real-life biography, an amazing real-life film. It is really a great film. As a documentary, it is great. As a film, it is wonderful. As a biopic, it is very good. It is really one of the best films that I have ever seen. I cannot think of anything else. This is a movie that should be seen, one of the best films of all times, in my opinion, I do not know why many people think that it is bad, because it is not bad, it is good, it is truly great.

There are many reasons why I recommend seeing this movie: The acting is fantastic! Denzel Washington is absolutely superb in his role as the mysterious, mysterious man, Martin Luther King. His performance was so full of sadness and rage that it made you understand the character of the man that he portrayed. Jamie Foxx was wonderful in his role as King's assistant, Stokely Carmichael. He played this role in such a way that it was truly amazing. The plot is fantastic. It is also very, very very powerful. The emotional feelings that the audience gets through the movie is powerful and yet the most amazing thing about it, is that it could have been so much more powerful. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has any type of feelings about the struggle of the Civil Rights Movement of the 50's and the people that have been involved in that fight. It is also one of those films that you will never forget. You will never forget how much it touched you. Even if you have never been in a church or have not been involved in a battle of any kind in the past, you will still be touched by it.

It's interesting how popular a film that has long been a bit of a scandal can be in a very quiet time. But we should always remember how many movies we enjoy. Some are stars and others are not. But as a film that is more than just a controversy, or a failure, or a scandal, it really has a very impressive filmography. And this is what The 33 is. It's the story of a group of people who go to Argentina and discover that they had been being monitored in a "state of the art" interrogation center, which is at the same time run by a young man who does not work and lives with his parents. The young man tries to learn how to have an open and honest conversation with the young people who go through his interrogation, which is an important step for the people who goes through the "interrogation." The first half is a very well done documentary-style story, told with the technology and through interviews with the people who went through the "interrogation." The people who go through the "interrogation" at the beginning of the movie can not believe what they go through, and eventually they start to have doubts. But once they have seen the movie, they really understand what they went through. They can relate to the atmosphere in the interrogation center and the "state of the art" things they experienced, which is what the first half of the movie is all about. It's a very interesting film, one that doesn't give anything away, but tells you everything you need to know. I recommend the film to everyone who is interested in films about torture, or even other history, or just interested in being enlightened, or to those who don't want to think about anything for a long time, or to those who like to see people who are intelligent and brave and want to do the right thing. The best part about the film is that it doesn't tell you everything you need to know, but it also doesn't tell you anything you don't need to know, and it does it in a way that everyone can understand. 9/10.

.and the result is a superlative film which, for its time, stands out as a masterpiece of both acting and story-telling. Without giving away too much (for the same reason as I mentioned, of course), I can say that the film offers many strong moments of emotional involvement. The main character is not always right, but all of us, no matter how different, will have some of our own scars, which those people we don't know, who have suffered in a similar fashion, will take from them. The story is obviously not based on a true story, but that is not to say it is a bad thing. The actual director, James Marsh, has built a fantastic, atmospheric and highly effective piece of work, and his courage and bravery in telling the story in this manner is amazing, and deserves our respect. I, for one, am immensely grateful to this director and to all involved in his work. I believe you will too. Without giving away too much, this film is not just for those who like this sort of thing, as there are parts which are just a bit too brutal, and in parts where it would have been more appropriate to be more subtle, but still, this film is extremely strong, so strong in fact that I am certain most of those who have seen it have no doubt felt compelled to watch it at least once. The ending is shocking and unexpected, and one can see that the story has not gone in the direction I think it should have, and that it is about to change and become a great one, despite the attempt of a few of the characters to stop the story. I believe it is an excellent movie, and I highly recommend it. 9/10

I have no idea how the 35% score of IMDb is so high. I actually thought that this was a pretty good movie. I haven't seen such an accurate and accurate portrayal of true history as this. After watching this movie, I think I will watch American History X. When it comes to the portrayal of the events, I think it's one of the most accurate. This movie does a good job of showing what happened in history, showing the media, and giving a fair to everybody. What I did not like was that it showed too much of the media. For example, what is it about the media? Why does it always have to be one big story? When I was young, I always heard that the media were evil, that they did things that no human being would do. But then I started to see history on a bigger scale. And I think that's what this movie is trying to show. Not that there is nothing good about the media, but it also shows that the media is evil. I think that if the media is evil, why does it show everything? If there is no media, then it would be less of a struggle to find out the truth. So I don't understand why the 35% score is so high. I guess the rating system has to be so skewed to show the fact that everything the media did was bad.

I was rather taken aback by the theatrics and overemphasis on the alleged political backdrop in the movie. I understand the desire to tell a story that reflects the propaganda that arose over the years of the Vietnam War. I recognize that it is a subjective story and I respect that. But the epic theatrical showing of the movie has no basis in fact. The film is about the events of September 11, 2001, and the characters are the people who took part in the attacks. But it is an objectively factual story about a small contingent of the CIA and other intelligence professionals who were involved in the operation, a handful of other agents and a few civilians. The fact is, there was never a plot or conspiracy. The film is entirely fictional. The film is about some of the men who were working out of Langley during this period. They are real people, and are fascinating to see. I don't see how anyone could not appreciate these people. I'm not trying to paint the CIA as a deeply evil organization. In my opinion, that's not the case. I don't have a problem with the portrayal of the CIA in the movie. It is just that the film is a fictional depiction of events and characters that happened on September 11, 2001. It is based on a book, but it is clearly not the same book that was used as the basis for the film. If you want to know more about the CIA, I recommend the book "The Unbreakable: The Life of Henry Kissinger." I can't wait to get my hands on that book. And no, I am not comparing the film version of "The 33" with the book. "The 33" is a good movie and should be appreciated as such.

The final scene of the film will make you cry. The first 3/4s of the film were good, but the ending where they are fighting really makes it all worth it. The new kid in town, Ben, brings the whole town together, he gives his own advice on the health care bill, and saves it from the Senate, which is great, since his boss is against it. The final fight between the Senator and her, is so awesome, and really shows how a senate vote can change the whole country. Also, the final scene, is very moving, because it shows that even the smallest things in life can make a huge difference in people's lives. Overall, the film is great, and you will love it. 9/10

It was a lovely, light, contemporary, humorous, interesting film, with a powerful, fascinating story. Yes, the story was somewhat predictable, but that's just what it was, and the film was effective, entertaining, and full of surprises. It was also quite uplifting and positive. The film is not a perfect film, but it was very enjoyable and I hope it reaches a wide audience, especially with the current political situation in the US.

I've never seen the original (and it was a crime), so I don't know if it's as good as the book. But this is a good movie. We see some of the activities of Oswald's parents, and we get a lot of information about the early years. They got married, they had a boy, they moved to Mexico, and then they came back to America. And we see how they dealt with it all. It was kind of sad, because we didn't know what was going to happen with the son. But the way this movie is written, you never really know what is going to happen. The book was very hard to adapt. I think we're just going to learn a little bit more of what happened in the book. But it's a very good movie, and it shows a little bit about the life of JFK.

Just about every liberal who thinks they are smarter than others in the world can spot and quote parts of this film. The director, Woody Allen, told the audience that it was his favourite film and anyone who didn't think so must not be able to watch enough films. The name "To Kill A Mockingbird" should have been used earlier. No one should be born on a plantation, but those that are born there can be slaves for life and live in the plantations of the rich. How could a group of kids manage to survive that life. Everyone has to grow up, even when they are young. They can't escape their past because it is imprinted in their heart. I was going to say something about the ending but forgot and wrote it anyway. This is a good film for all people to enjoy, especially for the kids. The best film for me was Chariots Of Fire, not only is it a beautiful film, but it is also one of the best films I have ever seen, and I am 35. The ultimate movie for a sad time and for a yearning to be free.

It was a little disappointing to hear that the film makers didn't seem to have a good grasp on history. I mean, the actual assassination of John F. Kennedy was not in the minds of the filmmakers, it was just a part of history that they chose to ignore. The film was well worth the price of admission. It was well made, acted, and I have to admit I enjoyed it. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in history. It is not an Oscar contender, but it is worth the price of admission. It is a must see.

While I was initially hesitant to see this film, I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the film as an action movie and as a drama. I found it to be more realistic than the other films based on true events and a more accurate portrayal of the events that happened in Kenya in the early 1990's. The film was well acted and the actors portrayed the characters accurately. I also found the film to be very interesting and informative. The film showed the reality of the situation in Kenya and the difficulties the African country was facing. The film was very entertaining and entertaining. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good action movie, drama, or historical film.

It's been a long time since I've seen a biopic, but this one is an exception. It's based on the life of an infamous woman, Dorothy Stratten, a woman who went to jail for the murder of her son. Her story is told through interviews and then through documentary footage, all of which are just as compelling as the film itself. I won't give away any of the story, but it's pretty much the whole story. This film isn't for everyone, but it's definitely worth your time. I definitely recommend it.
