A must watch for all those who remember. (minor spoiler (N/a if you know the story))
22 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a must watch for all who remember the Beaconsfield mine distaster back in 2006. It shocked the nation, touched our hearts and made us cry. The loss those poor men felt and the horrific situation that the two survivors and their family's were put through still make me flinch at the thought. This movie caught this pain, sadness and happieness in the end extremely well. The actors played the parts fantastically and the directIng was superb!

I give this movie a 10 out of 10. One of the best re-tellings of all time.

Good job.

Respect to those who died, worked, lived and rescued and their family's.
