Movie Info

What's it like to be trapped in a cave for 18 days? How does it feel to be part of one of the biggest rescue missions in history? When rising floodwaters trap a boys soccer team in a cave system in Thailand, an Irish cave diver (Jim Warny, as himself) joins the massive effort to save them. Shot at the original locations -- and featuring real heroes involved in the rescue -- this incredible saga based on true events is as close as you can get to experiencing for yourself the intensity of this inspiring adventure.


Critic Reviews for The Cave

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

There are so many people but so few characters. Such a big story, with so little feeling.

Cave Rescue can forever claim to be the first movie made about an unforgettable ordeal. But that's all anyone will remember it for.

April 5, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

While the world could use some positivity and a demonstration of nations and states coming together for a greater good, The Cave isn't cinematic enough to have real impact.

Like the cave rescue itself, the film isn't the disaster it easily could have been. But it's far from achieving an equivalent triumph.

Barely resembles a movie, and has more in common with true-crime TV show re-enactments... makes an immense feat look, feel and seem all too ordinary.

One could venture the absence of checks and balances allowed this to happen. Tom Waller directed, produced and co-wrote Cave Rescue. It has "passion project" written all over.
