Mostly sound and fury, it seemed like a documentary made for IMAX about the challenges and majesty surrounding the highest peak in the world.
The tension was left a little too late in the film, while the star line up played the second lead to Everest, which they did successfully.
The fact that it was based on a true story gave it some weight, but the story wasn’t dire enough. Scenes of the much more superior film ‘Alive’ came to mind, but the director, though dealing with loss of life, didn’t have the scope of the tragedy or the length of rescue time that leaves a mark.
A visual film with a few intense scenes and moments.
