Storyline

Based on the real-life chronicle of the "nine for nine" Pennsylvania coal miners who were rescued in the summer of 2002. Told from their own perspective, the movie reveals their extraordinary experience and, takes viewers inside the mine (shot in real mines and recreated on a soundstage) to show the life-threatening dangers and physical limitations the men faced for 77 hours as they waited for rescue. The movie was shot in many of the actual locations in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, including scenes at the real-life Quecreek mine. Written by Film Lab Rat

Not bad but why didn't they film an ending???
25 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK TV Movie, actually refreshing to have a positive story and family oriented characters as opposed to the trash that's usually thrown at the public in the form of a TV movie.

It did give the viewer a look at what it must've been like for those 9 workers. I wish they would've added, or informed the viewers of the actual dates. If this movie is viewed several years from now, it would be nice to inform new viewers when it took place. It does have that "Get the TV movie out there right away..." feel to it as you watch but it isn't bad at all.

Could've been a lot better and the abrupt ending was a disappointment.
