Not What You May Think
21 November 2019 | by jimcarter1959See all my reviews

Daring cave rescue by a tireless, heroic group? No! After 90 minutes the "rescue" consists of telling the victim to breathe countless times. Oh..they did cut part of his pants off. So; what about the other 88 minutes? A lot of dream sequences and flashbacks that have nothing to do with a cave or rescue. Had I known in advance the cave was in Utah, I wouldn't have wasted all the time. Utah means we're treated to a healthy dose of their bizarre religion. If you want a sappy, predictable love story with a religious slant, then this is your movie. If not; don't bother.
