Review: 13 Lives, Amazon Prime Original

If you're looking for an edge-of-the-seat thriller, you must watch Thirteen Lives, an Amazon Prime Original.

Based on the 2018 daring rescue of 12 Thai boys and their coach who were trapped in a flooded cave, the film, directed by Ron Howard and starring Viggo Mortenson and Colin Farrell is a taut retelling of that event.

Like most "based on true event" movies, not all of the details were told, but there wasn't any dramatization added either which makes this an even more amazing movie.

I remember being captivated by the story and wondered if those 13 could be rescued. It took days. Watching the movie, I'm amazed that divers managed to save all of the 13.

Harrowing doesn't begin to describe the event. If you're even a little claustrophobic and/or scared of water, you may want to take something to calm your nerves before watching this. But don't miss it.

Even though you know the outcome, the movie is a real nail biter. It's also inspiring that in the face of such danger, people of many nations can come together and work to save others.

Takeaway Truth

Two thumbs up for this movie. It's awesome—the best movie I've seen in a while.
