    Thirteen Lives

    ★★★½

    Ron Howard knows his way around a rescue mission … but instead going up like in the 1995 classic Apollo 13, rescuers this time go down - underwater.

    Thirteen Lives dramatizes the real-life events from 2018’s Tham Luang cave-rescue mission when a dozen young Thai football players, aged between 11 and 16, and their coach were trapped in a flooded cave.

    Before the release I was thinking that Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff would be the real star but at the end it was Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova that stole…
