Critic Reviews for Mine 9

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

  • Eddie Mensore has not made a masterpiece of the genre, but there's a poignancy to his gritty calamity tale that makes Mine 9 worth watching.

  • The movie's implication that the untenable conditions are just "the way it is" is complacent at best.

    Jun 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Mensore dedicates his scant resources to creating a visceral experience, emphasizing the lack of visibility, the gassy haze and the constant, terrifying creaks and moans underground.

    Jun 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A survival thriller works if the tension is authentic and the actions are believable. You get that and more in director Edward Mensore's immersive nail-better.

  • An impressive piece of work that deploys low-budget filmmaking techniques with cleverness.

    Apr 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Mensore's film aims chiefly to highlight the typical plight of an American underclass that rarely gets big-screen attention. That it does with honesty and conviction, if not a great deal of inspiration.
