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

This movie was absolutely terrible. I have never seen such maudlin crap. I mean, every single little cliche was found in this movie. Crying wives, friendships tested, hope. I mean, sure those are good themes and all, but it wasn't done in an original way. The makers had a real opportunity here to make a good movie out of an event that touched America, but all they did was make crap to take advantage of the currently patriotic America. Really made me sick to watch every scene.
