  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Mountain Between Us

    Well-shot but unable to overcome the fantastic lack of realism that taps into the authenticity of the core relationship, "The Mountain Between Us" places a metaphorical land mass in between its story and the audience's ability to sympathize. I liked the film's initially cynical take on love ("the world is so big and the heart is just a muscle"), but even that proved to be a quote of trite impulse.

  • konochingo's rating of the film The Mountain Between Us

    The dialog needlessly communicates the movie's theme at every turn. There's a HORRENDOUS scene where Winslet talks about taking a picture of a dying girl in a war zone??? Otherwise good. Elba and Winslet have good chemistry. Some issues with the way the narrative unfolds but... it mostly succeeds at being suspenseful. Awesome final frame and I love me a good final frame so that filled me with small joy.
