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

Better than average TV movie
24 November 2002 | by krdst2See all my reviews

Typical made for TV movie. Over-dramatic at times, but got the job done. The actor who played the character who kept the families of the victims updated, did an excellent job with his pittsburgh accent. Although it was a small part, the man who played Gov. Schweiker portrayed him perfectly.

Very touching story. Better than average TV movie, especially since these events just took place a few months ago.
