ReelViews for 'Thriller' movies
It might be possible to make a gripping film about the 2010 mining disaster but "The 33" isn’t it.
Works not only as a portal into what happened 37 years ago but as an understanding of the difficulties of handling hostage situations.
Not a bad high-concept thriller but, as is often the case with movies hampered by undercooked storylines, something better could have resulted from the same basic plot points.
Provides a solid starting place for a series or, if the box office doesn’t warrant a continuation, an engaging stand-alone thriller.
More often frustrating than successful, this is a generic neo-noir buddy cop movie that misses too many opportunities to do anything different.
