First, there's the dull character development. Then, they reach the summit only halfway through the movie, leaving them to brace a ferocious storm on the way down with minimal rewarding triumph in the end.

There is a fine line between bravery and insanity and I think anyone who decides to attempt something that kills one out of every four people who tries it, crosses that line several times over. While I'm sure several liberties are taken with the "true" story behind Everest, it still has a big impact. One wonders what goes through the minds of people who pass frozen corpses left on the mountain on their own way to climb the world's highest peak? All I know is it takes a certain breed of person to do that and whether it's inspirational or insane is quite debatable.

no sugar, no salt. the movie was so bad that i wondered about whats the point loosing the minutes just to finish him. and i did not. the article showing the abandoned bodies of those who did not make it acros the time and peaks was much much expressive.

I applaud Working Title for breaking new ground and not sticking to the 'Into Thin Air' version of the 1996 Everest tragedy, which is maybe why this book is not in this film's Credits, something that has not gone unnoticed by some professional reviewers. Working Title/the Director referred to Jon Krakauer as 'a writer who just happened to be on the mountain at the time'. To learn more about what actually caused this seminal event you will need to read 'A Day to Die For' and 'After the Wind'. Well done Working Title and Baltasar Kormakur for daring to break the mold!﻿
