A fast paced but stupid mountain rescue film. A selfish man justify the deaths of everyone in a climbing team so he can save one person - his sister. Bill Paxton sleaze it up and Scott Glenn is too good for the film. Nice to see a sympathetic Muslim in a Hollywood production too, but Alexander Siddig's character is underdeveloped and sadly underused. One of those films that seem to get worse for each time I view it.
I loved this movie when I was younger, it is - of course - very dramatic, but hey, real mountain climbing stories that actually happened can be super dramatic! I really enjoyed the suspense and visuals and yeah why not, mountain climbing yay!
