Mining is definitely a difficult and dangerous job. The darkness, the pressure of the mountain above you, they all add up to an atmosphere that is only further amplified by the fact that a single pocket of gas, of a shift in the earth can trap you in place forever.
Being in tombed in a mountain is certainly something I’d never want – and no matter how I felt about my father I wouldn’t follow him down just to prove “I can do it”, I’m fine knowing there are some things I can’t do. Of course, you never can tell what’s going to happen when you’re trapped alone in the dark.
While the story line for this movie is far and away not one of my personal favorites – and honestly I have problems concentrating on the movie through it – it still has some good parts. I can see where a lot of other people would enjoy the movie, and some days, it’s not terrible for a re-watch, and the production quality isn’t awful, so I give it three bloody kitties, knowing other people will enjoy it more than I.
