I have fonder memories of Alive (1993). This one tries a slower and more intimate moments approach which for me felt a little on the empty side and did not enhance the characters in the grand scheme of things. It's still one of the more spectacular true stories out there and a really nice reacquaintance.

Bayona doesn’t let his pretty good images speak for themselves, but begs for our pity through music, editing and voice over. He begs for the viewer to find his movie poetic. And he begs for us to find this inspirational. This is exactly the moment when a movie steps over the line and becomes sentimental. And that’s when i check out and become apathetic and cynical

Disaster tourism. The suberb production design and casting could've been the basis for a claustrofobic, tense, horryfying story of survival. Unfortunately the movie gets drowned by a blubbery soundtrack, an annoying, arty-ish voice-over and philisophical sounding bullshit. +10 for the most insane public transport scene in film history.

The actors shine in extremely demanding roles, and Bayona has both the good taste and the technical proficiency to tell this harrowing story right.

The way the victims are presented is perfect, so honest and so respectful. Despite being hard to watch at times, the constant focus on hope carries you through supplemented with the beautiful setting.

Bayona knows how to whip up a frenzied disaster set-piece, and the plane crash early in this film is among the most thrilling and horrifying sequences of the year. Unfortunately, his emotional tendencies are as clumsy as ever. From the treacly, unproductive voiceover narration, to tacky editing decisions, Bayona continually overcooks what is already a powerful and affecting story with annoying sentimental preciousness.

Might have more impact if you don’t remember ALIVE (1993) – this is a less glossy and more raw telling of the story, but I’m not entirely convinced it’s the best way to tell it (especially as the largely non-descript corpses started to pile up, I missed the more strongly delineated characters from the earlier effort, especially Illeana Douglas’ den mother). Most interesting aspect of this version is the heavy lean on the spiritually fraught ethical framework which torments the characters.

This is a rather chilling tale of survival. I liked the panoramic sweeping shots used at times to really help give perspective about how small the group of survivors were in such a large and looming area. It'd be hard not to feel for them and wonder how they managed to keep going. Things get potentially rather grisly at times, though I'm glad there's no real unnecessary exploitation of what happened but it doesn't shy away from giving you the idea of what the survivors had to stoop to either.

Drags slightly towards the end, but then again the ordeal needs to feel long to add to the effect of the ending. Well done.

Fifty years after the events and thirty years after ALIVE, the title indicates that this is an attempt to give a broader depiction of the group than in the earlier movie, but there’s no getting away from the fact that, ultimately, the achievements of Roberto Canessa and Nando Parrado are beyond all comprehension. Certainly this is a more successful film, conveying at least a sense of the emotions and the scale of the difficulties that needed to be overcome.

Certainly didn't need to come up with so many boring wide-angled shots to convey its real-life horror story, but it's well-acted and it feels solid all the way. Bayona's best.

this is the remake of the movie Alive from 1993, story is the same but this time of course with more effects and bells and whistles the movie was brought up to a weighty level.

That's a good example of surviving movies.The snow scenes are amazingly beautiful.But it is also so much reality and that gives it the hard-watching movie! Some scenes are extraordinary and sometimes get disgusting.I had to stop the movie several times.If you decide to watch it,get ready to see so much reality!

An effective and emotional retelling of an incredible true story. The contrast between the small moments of survival with the vast shots of snowy landscape and small details such as condensation repeatedly dripping off the wreckage of the airplane give a claustrophobic sense of hopelessness that the film builds on as these characters try to find any reason to mentally and physically not give up. It's a powerful and moving film.

Maybe most of the film's appeal relies on the story itself, what an amazing feat it was to survive a plane crash under harsh mountain conditions, and the mental strength it took to keep going. Knowing the story already from a recent first-account documentary, everything else did not impress me. The acting so-so, the writing plain. Also, yet another recent movie that didn't need to be over 2 hours.

Not unlike Marshall's 1993 telling, but this time with more focus on the morbid and ethical aspects of [spoiler you know what] plus a very heavy Christian uplift bent. Easy to damn but there's no real way to go deep on these issues in a pop movie. Also, it's more expensive and longer, to no significant avail.

Carried by some sort of magical movie alchemy, this awe-inspiring tale never steps wrong. The best films ignite the joy of being alive, and that love and respect is here always side by side with the whitest and grisliest of deaths. And even if people are filmed like zombies escaping from their graves, there is never any sensationalism in the telling. The detailed day-to-day and existential questioning are enough. This is a society of brothers that carries itself to the end of the world.

It's difficult to critique a story like this. A harrowing and heart breaking, but also awe inspiring tale of friendship and survival. I remember seeing "Alive" during a grade 7 movie viewing. We chose it as a class with our teacher's permission and she was soon mortified at the graphic details our 12 yr old selves were subjected to. Fast forward 30 years and I'm watching the same story, but told quite differently. This version by Bayona chooses a more deliberate pace and emotional core. 8.0

A moving tribute to the will to live and a tactful handling of lives lost, but Baytona also uses his horror bonafides to infuse the story with nauseating dread. Both the crash itself, later disasters and the infamous consummation are evocatively filmed, making the distress of our survivors even more resonant. The decision to keep the focus on Enzo Vogrincic was also wise, as his expressive face grounds it and his voice-over gives it more dignity. Sat silent during credits, nauseous and elated.
