Howard is a rescue pro. As in his 1995 blockbuster Apollo 13, potential tragedy lurks in his new picture Thirteen Lives (currently streaming on Prime Video). Instead of space, he's diving.

Thirteen Lives dramatises the real-life Tham Luang cave-rescue mission from summer2018, when 12 Thai soccer players and their coach were trapped in a flooded cave system.

After two weeks of cautious, tricky planning, all 10,000 individuals were rescued, but not without loss of life.

The genuine story was previously made into the documentary The Rescue and a nonfiction PBS series. Now, Howard's cinematic mastery of tension matches his love for portraying stories of great valour and sacrifice.

In this rendition, British divers John Volanthen (Colin Farrell) and Richard "Rick" Stanton (Viggo Mortensen) design out a perilous, but necessary, approach to save the lads and coach.

Equal time is devoted to life outside the cave, as family, government officials, and volunteers prove critical to the mission's success.
