The film about saving the Thai children’s team is a gamble for Hollywood?

2015 film The 33 (titled Vietnam: 33 Miners) , directed by Patricia Riggen, recall the journey of survival and rescue of 33 miners trapped in the San Jose mine in Chile in 2010. Real Despite the efforts of the crew to recapture the air of choking (both literally and figuratively) of attempting to bring 33 miners to the surface, The 33 stops at the event’s narrative.

On August 5, 2010, the tunnel leading to the copper and gold mines in northern Chile collapsed, burying 33 miners under 700m. Two weeks later, the reconnaissance drills failed to produce any results, all hope dissipated by the relatives on the ground. But on Aug. 22, the miracle happened when a drill found its way down to trapped miners. They are still alive, despite the lack of water, oxygen and food. In the next two months, efforts were made to bring the survivors back.

What prevented The 33 from being a hit was a lack of detail and weight. The film crew’s superficiality from the preparation of material to the work was clearly visible, so there was not enough material to build a panoramic view of the rescue . Because it is not well prepared, can not be asked Patricia Riggen director to find a unique perspective different from the article that many people can read easily.

The thing that cinema can take advantage of compared to reading newspapers is the visual impression, the The 33 also has nothing special.

The 33’s lesson should be applied by Pure Filmmakers. The producers Michael Scott and Adam Smith are fast-paced Hollywood names who have the rights to transfer the Thai team’s rescue to the screen.

The miraculous survivors of the Thai team members have many similarities with the Chilean tsunami.

After nine days of survival in a submerged cave, similar to the Chilean miners, a member of the “Wild Pig” was found and brought out safely. An adaptation project is almost certain, as early as the first news of the accident was announced, people knew that sooner or later someone would do this. But looking back, the film has a lot of problems.

The film project on the rescue is not “delicious food” as many people think

Firstly, Thai government officials are very strict in controlling information related to the rescue operation. Due to the lack of accurate and accurate sources, based on interviews with people at the scene, it is difficult for Michael Scott to collect enough film material with a small team of independent companies. . There are a lot of issues that need to be re-created, such as space, space, darkness, hunger and thirst for characters that they can not relate to in interviews. In addition, Pure Flix will have to work very closely with geological experts, rescuers, people directly involved in the rescue for professional issues.

Little financial power is also a major barrier for the Pure Flix project to unravel the scale of the rescue process as well as the details of the plan to put 13 people in the cave. out. Speaking as a member of the 30-year national rescue team, this is an unprecedented rescue. A film-making company with the highest grossing film sales of $ 70 million can do little to replicate this complexity, let alone create more dramatic.

Fast-acting producers Adam Smith and Michael Scott

If Thai teenagers are the reluctant actors of the rescue, then Michael Scott and Adam Smith must be the seekers of 13 excellent faces to be able to express complex emotions. Such as fear, panic, sympathy … in the dark cave. It’s an extremely difficult task, because even if there is a good cast in the hand that does not balance, the film is easy to fall into the circuit without a prominent character to remember the audience name. . Finally, we talk about the death of former SEAL Special Agent Saman Kunan during the rescue of the children. Saman Kunan died due to lack of oxygen at a distance of 1.6 km. If not done, his contribution and sacrifice will not be gratefully rendered on the screen.

Whether they want to or not, Hollywood has embarked on the rebuilding of the spectacular rescue in Thailand. What we know today, and most importantly, is that all members of the team including the coaches have been rescued from the cave safely.
