Other than revelations and understanding the situations they faced the movie did not much more for the story, and did not bring any real emotional connection to anything. Shot well.
Of course you know about the kids Thai soccer team which got trapped in a cave. Did you know how they got them out? Sure there might have been cinematic liberties taken to elicit more dramatic effect, but this was worth it. After watching it, I have been thinking about it a lot and even with any extra drama, this was a rescue like no other. Even the Thai Navy Seals struggled to go back and forth to help the kids with water and food and one Seal died! That is real! That death makes you forget they were all rescued and makes you pay attention to how they accomplished it! How the kids were rescued just blew my mind. The odds must have been staggering against them. Give it a watch. Ron Howard does not disappoint.
