The ordeal of the 33 Chilean miners trapped deep inside the earth after the collapse of a mine shaft in August 2010 was both an intensely local story and a global phenomenon."The 33," revisits thIS episode, effectively stirring up those emotions all over again and adding some new ones inspired by the lives of the miners. The plot sometimes wobbles between the personal and procedural sides of the miners' plight, but both the science and the sentiment feel a little thin.

The basic story survives intact: a barely credible chronicle of catastrophe, incompetence, heroism, and a full geyser's-worth of that commodity so prized by film producers: the human spirit. As an act of topping off the miners' story, the film leaves something to be desired: extracting tears from the same people who sobbed at the real-life drama is a trickier proposition than it perhaps first looked.

Individual tales tumble out and over each other to confusing, dizzying effect. Many stories are short-changed or ignored to concentrate on a few. 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.
