Trivia

(June 2013) Jennifer Lopez got the news that she landed a role in this movie, when she answered a cell phone call by her agent during an interview for Washington D.C., radio station Hot 99.5. She did not discuss any details but referred to it as a "small film". See more »

Goofs

Mamani recalls that the land the mine is located was Bolivian and was taken by Chile in 1881. He references the War of the Pacific (1879-1884), between Chile and an alliance between Peru and Bolivia. However, in common discussions about this subject, Chileans and Bolivians would reference the year 1879, when it began, instead of 1881. See more »

Well done story about what can happen when we all work together.
21 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Based on the true story of 33 miners who go into a mine in Chile to have a big rock get in-between them and the surface, and they have to survive long enough to be rescued.

I thought the movie was very detailed and complete about what the miners and their families went through during this ordeal. I never felt I missed any part of it.

It was never boring, always interesting, which I did not expect, but a lot went on in those three mouths and it was captured wonderfully on the screen.

Antonio Banderas was great as Mario, who kept the men together long enough to survive.

And even though I knew the outcome, the 33 makes you feel for each character, which allows suspense.

Well done and heartwarming, hitting on the rights spots and leaving me all filled up inside.
