    The best part is that unlike “Lost,” “Battlestar Galactica” and “The Sopranos,” you won't be left scratching your head about the thrilling, completely satisfying ending.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    [Director Patricia Riggen] has made an old-fashioned film about brotherhood. “Old-fashioned” remains mainly a compliment here; it refers to efficient storytelling, a victory of some kind for each character (except one minor player), and English-language stars who put on accents with mixed success to play South Americans.

  • Leah Greenblatt

    An inspired fantasy sequence midway through hints at the more intriguing movie The 33 might have been; instead, its tragedy-to-triumph narrative aims mostly for width, not depth.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eva Salinas

    As millions watching the eventual rescue understood, the strength of those miners and the unlikely hope of their families, was utterly captivating. Their survival moved me deeply then and, with The 33, it still does now.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    This unabashedly crowd-pleasing movie gets to its uplifting but also somewhat disquieting conclusion and coda (which, as is the custom these days, introduces the audience to the real-life miners) with its integrity intact. Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    Despite the predictability of storytelling, The 33 is an undeniably rousing picture.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    With the help of some solid performances and James Horner’s heart-squeezing, throat-constricting score (one of the last he composed before his death in June), The 33 holds your attention and pushes the required buttons.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Inspiration is what The 33 is selling. And it's hard not to get caught up in the rescue. You forgive the movie its faults, or most of them, because its heart is firmly in the right place.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    The inspirational docudrama nicely evokes the havoc of the initial cave-in, but spends too much time above ground to convey the existential horror of the almost-buried men.

  • Calvin Wilson

    As shaky as the situation it depicts.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Antonio Banderas plays the growling veteran miner who shows flint and organizational moxie when the worst happens. And Lou Diamond Phillips, laying it on thick, is the guilt-ridden colleague, trapped with the others, whose job it is “to keep these men SAFE.” Which he does. Repeatedly. Loudly. Passionately.

  • John Anderson

    The world may have seen the outcome, but it’s still convincing, a story of courage without platitudes, and it features one of Antonio Banderas’ best performances in years.

    Time Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Massaging the facts to pump up the drama is a necessary evil in a film like this, but The 33’s cinematic beats are so familiar that they undercut the sense of realism that would make it more compelling.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The 33, directed by Patricia Riggen, makes a valiant effort to tell this harrowing story onscreen, and there are moments when every shifting plate clicks right into place. In the end, though, the picture stumbles, and it may not completely be the fault of the filmmakers.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Wendy Ide

    There is no question that this is an extraordinary tale of human fortitude and resilience: at least some of the tears that will be shed in the film will be honestly earned.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    What happened in Chile really was a triumph of the human spirit, as cliched as it is to write that sentence. The miners deserved a better movie, but that's not how it works.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The 33 has a disappointing lack of depth for a movie about being trapped 2,400 feet below.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    It’s never a good sign when the real people behind a movie’s story appear in the end credits and you’re stumped as to who’s who.

    New York Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The root problem of The 33 is that, in attempting to do too much, it succeeds at too little.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Only in the epilogue does the film mention that none of the miners was compensated and no one was held responsible.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • David Lewis

    Even the brilliant Juliette Binoche, a welcome presence in any film, is reduced to whipping up empanadas and looking wistfully beyond a fence — basically standing there and doing nothing. And this is one of the most developed characters in the movie.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    What these men endured is remarkable, and the logistics of the rescue are remarkable as well. The 33 settles for an unremarkable chronicle of that endurance test.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Benjamin Mercer

    Stalled in management mode for much of its duration, Riggen’s film nonetheless has its solid elements, one of them being Banderas’ energetic lead performance.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Might be more engaging were it not for the melodrama heavily larded into the screenplay (cobbled together by numerous writers).

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The whole film becomes as mechanical as the oversized drills in play at the rescue site.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Director Patricia Riggen finds a rigorous and affecting visual language for The 33, but she and her international cast are hampered by a screenplay that too often gets in the way of a powerful story.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Unearths not only those thirty-three miners but also several thousand tons of clichés.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The 33 makes shameless lunges at religious imagery via ghostly auras and this-is-my-flesh apportioning of daily rations. It feels tacky, and only late in the game does Riggen find the script’s most interesting idea, about unwanted celebrity. Miner story, major fail.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    In broad strokes, the events that unfold are undeniably riveting.... The trouble is, The 33 only knows broad strokes. Lacking any specific angle on the ordeal, the filmmakers give the once-over-lightly treatment to every aspect of it, which ensures that none of them will be properly served.

    Variety Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    The film doles out a shock or hits a (usually hollow) emotional note every few minutes with mechanical precision.
