Ron Howard is one of the most under rated directors working today. He is almost workman-like in the way he directs. No frills, no unnecessary story lines and rarely, if ever, any manipulation of the story. In Thirteen Lives, he sticks to what he does best - presents the facts and lets the story build its own suspense. For a movie that, I presume, most folks know the ending, this movie will keep you totally engrossed as you ride the roller coaster of emotions that all involved felt. From the distraught families to the mentally and physically drained rescuers, no one escaped without being overcome by the sheer enormity of an attempt to save the lives of these thirteen individuals.
This movie is taut and well paced with little or no filler. The actors were all extremely believable in their rolls. The sets and the action sequences were beyond reproach.
Having said all that, I would like to give special praise to the sound engineers. The sound when the divers were in the cave attempting to do the impossible was truly worthy of Academy Award consideration
I cannot recommend this movie more highly. It is one wet and wild ride.
Fmovies: I am Thai and I went through that time with my eyes glued to news channels and reports. Knowing the outcome doesn't effect the experience much at all. That's how good they made this movie. All the details, the sacrifices, the volunteering and the effort portrayed in this movie was just superb. Ron Howard's Apollo 13 comes to mind. We all knew the outcome but damn were we still on the edge of our seats.
I'm a scuba diver and well aware of the technical challenges of Cave Diving. I'm also well versed in the rescue of these boys having read two books and seen the previous documentaries. What's great about this movie is that it presents the emotional response of the parents and the divers, especially Harry and John and how they had to cope in an incredibly dynamic and challenging situation, moreso above the water, than in the water.
Thirteen Lives fmovies. "This is really the superhero movie of the year,". "It's a superhero movie with many, many heroes...see this movie because it will give you an idea of...when people get together to help one another, you will make life much easier. There's a lot of love in it."
I followed this Real story as it unfolded live on telly. I used to not sleep so that I know those kids will be alright somewhere.
Watching this 2.5 hrs movie, made me go back to June 2018 of Tham Luang cave rescue. This movie is a masterclass, it's emotional, it's about courage and rescue.
Don't miss this gem. Actors been brilliant so are the kids.
Thank you for this movie.
Living in Thailand I did follow the story of this amazing rescue from just a few 100 miles away.
Still this movie glued me to my seat for the whole runtime, making me feel for everyone involved.
Clearly one of the best movies I've seen all year, probably the best true story rescue movie I ever seen.
A must watch.
