    A sound story and effective in its moments of action and suspense. Vertical Limit will dazzles those viewers who aren’t expecting much but a fun, exciting film to watch with many thrills and chills to entertain.

    One of my all-time action movies, very well directed by Campbell to pull off one of his top achievements along with No escape.

  • Mike DApril 23, 2010Reply

    The special effects range from awful to incredible. Plenty of action but the lulls in between drag this on for what seems like eternity. Every time I hear Bill Paxson speak I look out for a tornado. Get rid of the sappy background story and shorten this movie and it could have killed.

  • Don SJune 13, 2010Reply

    Intense from beginning to end. Tightly plotted with a few subplots that play into the main story well. Not all movies accomplish that. The acting is believable; you buy into the tension that is created. The characters are mostly likable. Some of the circumstances are a stretch (foreign government just handing over explosives, etc.), but close enough to reality that they don’t jar you out of the world that is created. Well done action thriller.

  • Cody MJune 27, 2010Reply

    It has solid acting and action sequences, but enough with the “man vs. man” in survival movies involving nature.

  • Jazz ?July 1, 2010Reply

    The movie is interesting. The plot twists are clever, the acting’s fine. The visuals were spectacular and during the opening scene, I actually jumping I felt like I was hanging on the edge of a cliff the whole movie. Along the way, however, it has many almost jaw-dropping scenes and some spectacular mountain scenery which looks great.

  • Luke FJuly 11, 2010Reply

    Chris O’Donnell at his best!!!

  • Andrew IAugust 9, 2010Reply

    Starts off reasonably well, then every emergency imaginable befalls the climbers – I think they only forgot to include a shark attack – and it is this super-tension with avalanches, explosions, pietons falling out, ropes snapping etc which ultimately bores the viewer. Less is definitely more in this case. It was never going to be brilliant, but it’s still somewhat disappointing.

  • Zurino OAugust 9, 2010Reply

    A great old school climbing movie filled with actors who are still making good movies. Makes me wanna climb. Or at least watch Cliffhanger..

  • Asif KAugust 10, 2010Reply

    Family differences and personal grudges add drama to an already tense situation as the lives of a team of mountain climbers hang in the balance in this action drama. Peter Garrett (Chris O’Donnell) and his sister Annie (Robin Tunney) are the children of Royce Garrett (Stuart Wilson), an avid outdoorsman and climbing enthusiast who died when an accident left all three hanging from a single rope; Royce ordered Peter to cut him loose to save the lives of his kids, even though he knew it would mean his death. Years later, Peter has given up climbing and become a respected nature photographer, while Annie, who holds Peter responsible for her father’s death, is a famous world-class mountain climber who is hired by Elliot Vaughn (Bill Paxton), a self-made billionaire, to help him scale K2, a mountain in the Himalayas that’s the second-highest peak in the world. In the midst of the climb, dangerous weather strikes, and Elliot, Annie, and their crew find themselves trapped in a cavern that’s been sealed tight by an avalanche. Peter, who is near K2 working on an assignment, quickly organizes a crew of expert climbers to save Annie and the other mountaineers, who must work under a tight deadline before the trapped climbers run out of air. Peter’s partners in the rescue include beautiful medic Monique (Izabella Scorupco), radical climbers Cyril (Steve Le Marquand) and Malcolm (Ben Mendelsohn), disciplined Pakistani crewman Kareem (Alexander Siddig), and Montgomery (Scott Glenn), an eccentric outdoorsman who has a score to settle with Elliot. While backgrounds were shot on location in Pakistan, most of the climbing sequences in Vertical Limit were actually filmed on mountain ranges in New Zealand.

    starring Chris O’Donnell, Bill Paxton, Robin Tunney, Scott Glenn, this is a pretty action adventure movie packed with some really breathtaking and heart stopping for specially me since i am really scared of heights.

    i am rating it this much just for the adventure fun and special effects action scenes of it and the fact it got my breath away but still the movie has flaws and it is not actually very good.

    this is a movie about mountain climbing, very harsh conditions are shown when the brother has to save his sister after she with two other guys is trapped due t an avalanche. its directed by Martin Campbell with average direction, he could have been slightly better but still okay. good cinematography pretty scary and eye popping mountains really looks good. screenplay had flaws it was uneven. plot was a bit shaky too.

    recommended to action adventure lovers.

    An action motion picture for the people that doesn’t require of deep and meaningful topics.

  • Bryan WAugust 17, 2010Reply

    So it’s not a classic by any means. Few action directors in the modern era are as underrated as Martin Campbell, and this non-stop action fest is just one of the many examples of his abilities. Even at two hours, the film is no longer than it needs to be, even if the character development at the start of the film could be tossed aside. It’s one of many great cable recovery films that you’ll be engrossed by when you catch it at the halfway point on your couch one boring afternoon.

    un blockbuster typiquement américain. Les clichés sont là , des explosions et des moments dramatiques qui voient arriver de trÚs loin.

    Peter: My sister’s dying up there, Mr. Wick.
    Montgomery Wick: Up there, you’re not dying, you’re dead.

    The trailer makes this movie seem a lot more epic than it really is. However, I’m still stunned by all the hate behind this movie. It’s a well-made action film that is pure entertainment. This movie is not meant to be taken seriously, it’s not trying to teach you how to be a climber. It’s just pure escapist entertainment from start to finish.

    The plot is somewhat predictable but it’s still not a bad plot. It’s still a plot that is strongly acted and extremely well crafted. The movie does start off slow but once those intense action sequences hit I guarantee you will be on the edge of your seat. This movie was released around the time the extreme fad became popular and not only is it extreme but it is definitely a whole lot better than the other extreme movies we got at that time.

    This film is full of amazing scenery, great cast members, and spectacular stunts. Again, this film is not meant to be taken seriously. It’s just a load of pure entertainment with awesome stunts and scenes. Martin Campbell is a great action film director and this film is definitely one of his underrated and awesome films.

    OĂą(TM)Donnell and Tunney star as siblings, Peter and Annie, moving on after a family tragedy and then seeing their lives come full circle when later faced with a similar perilous predicament. The story takes place at the base camp and on the peaks of K2. Annie is assisting an entrepreneur/adventurer (played by Paxton) reach the summit. Paxton delivers a subtly evil portrayal of the financier with a hidden agenda. The film does boast unbelievable scenery and some wild action, but the story is far too predictable and this theme of redemption has been overdone.

    “You have reached the Vertical Limit..”

    A breathtakingly solid action film, Vertical Limit is straight forward, pure entertainment throughout. A wickedly realistic and jaw droppingly tense thrill ride that climbs to new heights and delivers on all fronts. Director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, The Green Lantern, Edge Of Darkness, The Mask Of Zorro, Beyond Borders) crafted quite a suspenseful film that’s quite effective at sucking the air out your lungs and leaving you with a fear of heights if you weren’t already. The action sequences were splendidly thrilling throughout, the special effects are solid, the story keeps your interest and gorgeous cinematography will blow your mind. Vertical Limit was a favorite of mine when I was younger just for the significant amount of thrills, chills and suspense.
    The acting could have been better, but I wasn’t too worried about it. With performances from Bill Paxton, Chris O’ Donnell, Robin Tunney and the always magnificent Scott Glenn.

    An ok action movie, even better than expected (for action movie) but i was sure watching it, that it was an 80’s movie maximum 90’s but certainly not 2000.

  • Manon MJanuary 31, 2011Reply

    Great mountain climbing film – well, a little over the top at times and some logical mistakes, but overall a very captivating thriller. Vertical Limit is well crafted and the acting is essentially good… if you only judge it by its visuals this film would be a straight success – tho not filmed in the Himalaya and at K2 (filmed in New Zealand at Mount Cook) it gives you the illusion of being in the Himalayan mountains, which is pretty stunning.
    K2 is onviously one of the scaries mountains, next to Nanga Parbat obviously, but I missed its presence in the film… somehow I wished for more background. But overall, not bad. I can forgive a few flaws, but sending up someone who hadn’t much mountaineering experience the last years without bottled oxygen on the second hightest mountain on Earth?!? You gotta be kidding me… way over the top, seriously. As far as I remember they were not that far from the summit so they were probably in the Death Zone… Nice explanation of HAPE (high altitude pulmonary edema) tho… The action scenes in Vertical Limit take cliffhanging to the highest peaks of excitement. It’s a shame the story keeps dragging us down to sea level. But I would like to see more like this… maybe a really stylish version of Into Thin Air? 🙂

  • David LFebruary 4, 2011Reply

    Never quite got into fifth gear this film. Good introduction which set the scene for the rest of the film, but something was missing to give it that cutting edge. Quite an obvious and cheesy ending which you somehow knew was coming one way or another. It was also a bit disappointing that despite the stormy weather conditions and freezing temperatures, the main cause of death was because the supposed ‘experienced’ climbers were carless at handling the explosives. There was a sufficient level of action to keep one entertained throughout, but it was always blatant who was going to survive, and who wasn’t, which takes that element of tension away. Quite simply, a good flick, easily watchable, but VERY predictable.

  • Christopher AFebruary 9, 2011Reply

    Vertical Limit is an exciting Mountain Climbing, action packed guilty pleasure. The acting isnt great and the special effects are average at best but the storyline is well delivered and will have you hanging on the edge of your seat throughout.

    Twists and turns are what power this movie forward as we follow a rescue mission up K2, against the elements and against time as Peter Garrett (Chris O’Donnell) tries to save his sister.

    Its the opening sequence that hooks you in though as its probably one of the most effective and emotionally draining opening scenes I’ve seen in a very long time. Very powerful and a great way to start the movie.

    As said, this is a guilty pleasure and Bill Paxton is always worth a watch!

    Yeah, the idea is kind of stupid, but the scenery is great and all the cast are actually pretty good here. Paxton is a great scumbag, and I actually liked all the supporting hikers O’Donnell picks up to save his sister.

    Some of the action sequences are super intense, including the opening one.

    I always watch this whenever it comes on TV. It’s a pretty fun adventure if you can get past the crazy plot.

  • Conner RMay 17, 2011Reply

    This was the coolest movie when I was 11 years old and I still have to say that it’s a lot of fun and delivers adrenaline with an icy cold fury. It’s like an unofficial companion to Cliffhanger; this deals with a similar case of rock climbing guilt. There are so many crazy stunts, unwarranted destruction and deadly situations that it’s hard not to get wrapped up in the story and feel the power of snow terror running down your spine. Chris O’Donnell fares extremely well as his action star self, something that must’ve been hard to achieve post-Batman & Robin. Bill Paxton also works well as the movie’s diabolical villain who somehow manages to outshine a natural disaster. With incredibly well shot action sequences, great pacing and fun characters, it’s hard not to find something to enjoy about this.

  • Christopher SMay 28, 2011Reply

    What seemed pretty promising (The opening 10 minutes) turned into a total mess of a film.

    All the usual action movie cliches are here: the Wise Old Man, the K2 veteran who has a spiritual connection with the mountain, the surfer dudes who spend their time in the basecamp getting stoned, the beautiful girl with the perfect make-up at 7000 meters, the hero who used to be the best but hasn’t climbed since he lost his father in an accident.

    I can buy all this, and more, provided that the action scenes deliver. In Vertical Limit they don’t. It’s an endless row of repeating the same scene: the “professional” climbers make some incredibly stupid beginner’s error, and find themselves hanging off a 500 meter vertical rock wall secured only by a broken ice-axe. Then a period of the usual sentimental Hollywood dialogue where old conflicts are brought up, while they are trying all the most stupid ways of resolving their situation.

    After a while this gets boring and you find yourself thinking about other things, like why on earth they bring highly explosive liquid nitroglycerine to the mountain. I guess dynamite seems to be unknown in the mountaineer community. Or why the “professional” climbers try to climb the next highest mountain in the world wearing knitted caps and 60s style parkas. Or why they choose to put down the rescue team from a helicopter on a narrow shelf on a vertical rock wall. Do the film makers really want me to believe that this is _the_ best place to drop off people from a helicopter at 6400 meters on the whole K2?

    The overall cast is not strong by big budgeted hollywood standards, not even in 2000 when it was made. Chris O’Donnell was far to “wimpy” for this role and was 3 years removed from his last big budgeted flick (batman & robin) so his star was definitely dimming. Scott Glenn appears as his usual haggard self. He really gives new meaning to the word crusty. Bill Paxton does his best at being menacing (his best wasn’t good enough).Paxton, I always felt was better suited for the co-star role, even if some producers think other wise. I can’t seem to stand his Alfred E. Newman facially features. Robin Tunney who has yet to impress me in any of her movie roles, keeps her record intact.

    So….Special effects were good and that’s about it. The plot itself, was really twisted and got turned into an unneeded drama fest. It could have worked well, but honestly, this movie was badly miscasted in my opinion. Certain disaster movies work despite their cliches, but Vertical Limit, well, it reached it’s limit and went past it. To summarise, boring action scenes combined with the usual cliches and stupid plot makes this movie not worth it.A forgettable flick, if there ever was one.

  • James OJune 5, 2011Reply

    Too Many Avalanche’s in the movie tests the patience of audience. Most of the scenes were abruptly ended and contributes to poor editing skills. Visual panache or grandeur as expected was absent. Pakistan Military man says “Its Time to wake up Indians ” before firing a bomb; Best comedy dialogue i ever heard from Hollywood. Though vertical limit do have some heart touching moments , the movie becomes gross as it progresses. Some scenes were more in the nature of emotionally disturbing rather than being heart touching. Positives of the movie failed to capture the cutting edge for the movie. Get programmed sentimentally and go to cinemas.

    When I saw the previews for `Vertical Limit,’ I was really impressed with all the action. The movie has a lot of great action that a disaster movie should have & the scenery of New Zealand, where the movie was shot, was beautiful. The workload on the cast to make this movie looked very demanding. However, I felt that parts of the movie plot was a bit predictable, & foreshadowed a bit too many times.

    A fairly formulaic action/adventure/adrenaline picture with the conclusion never in any doubt. Playing like an old school slasher film you know whose going to survive and whose not going to make from the outset, but some of the set pieces are well crafted and the New Zealand scenery looks fantastic, otherwise this is Sunday evening entertainment when nothing else is on.

    This together with DEEP BLUE SEA are two adventure actioners I am keen to catch. I don’t really know why. Just got a good feeling about them.

    I like VERTICAL LIMIT and even have a certain respect for it. It is quite hard to come across a rather human adventure actioner. It chooses not to let its male lead be the sole hero with all the bright ideas and fearless gut. It does not have any unarmed combat and gunfight to induce excitement. The only antagonists are the violent weather, the treacherous terrain and all that snow. The movie keeps this as a focus and develops into a very nail-biting rescue mission, that is believable and never over-the-top melodramatic.

    There are many scenes which require a very clear-minded person to make very very tough decisions, even that means seeing your loved ones and close friends die. Up there, if you let your emotions get in the way, you will jeopardise the survival chances of many others. Making sacrifices become more of logical than emotional. Respecting and saving life is of paramount importance. I gain a good idea of the psyche of a mountain climber.

    Peli mas que representativa de lo que es un desarrollo de genero: guion obvio, evidente, sin complicaciones, novedades ni necesidad de las mismas. Personajes directos a lo que se supone deben hacer. Rodaje efectivista y conservador. Todo esta donde y como se supone, con lo que el exito o fracaso de una produccion asi depende del factor X. Lo tiene? nop. Pero tampoco lo necesita. La tematica es interesante y poco explotada, las imagenes son bonitas, hay accion sin un solo tiro, y aunque nada te inclina a pensar que es una buena peli, tampoco es ridicula e insoportable, es un producto que nace con unas necesidades y las cubre sin complicaciones.

    Breathtaking scenery and some tense scenes definitely make this movie watchable, but the character archetypes are all too predictable. Peter Garrett (Chris O’Donnell) never quite lives up to his persona as National Geographic photographer, and his sister Annie (Robin Tunney) seems oddly unlike herself on the mountainside with Elliot Vaughn (Bill Paxton, who is creepy as ever). The pace of the film rides from one tense moment to the next, even though sometimes tense gives way to ludicrous. I did not hate this movie, but I did not love it either.

    Not only is this movie boring but it is entirely predictable, has one too many stupid moments in it, only a couple of decent actors make an appearance and despite the fact the rescue mission has been a complete failure it tries to go for the typical happy ending that Hollywood loves so much. Only good points are the action, it looks great and has a few thrills.

    many people think this movie is corny but i like it. i does have a very good wide variety of special effects. it keeps me wondering what will happen next. there is a lot of sad parts that makes it interesting. how do they even make theses special effects like the animals,shadows and the people hanging from the rope off the cliff? some parts are easily noticeable to tell when something is fake. i reccomend this movie to people who like action and sad movies.

  • Erin BApril 23, 2013Reply

    Vertical Limit is a poor excuse for an action film, it puts special effects to the limit. The acting was more painful than watching half of the characters fall from thousands of feet off a cliff above. There is no evident plot shown, just a bunch of bad effects and lousy transitions. Not to mention the storyline was extremely confusing. The stunts were almost to unbelievable that it made it comical to watch. So, I gave it half a star, if it even deserved that much. The idea was there to make a quality movie, they just overdid the whole thing which made it extremely uncomfortable and cheesey to watch. Bland and predictable are the two words I would use the most to describe this movie. A 3 year old could predict what would happen next in the so called “Plot”. The green screen in the back was very obvious, it seemed like the director just threw some stuff together and called it a movie. Over all this movie was awful, but they had a good idea, they just killed it with the over use of special effects. The bad definitely outweighs the good in this film. I recommend to save your money and two hours of your life, and not watch it.

  • Jessica ZApril 23, 2013Reply

    Lets just start this out with saying Vertical Limit is that type of movie where you actually want to see all the characters die. Literally the only time I really paid attention was when there were people hanging off the side of a cliff. The story line was just super confusing and half of the time you didn’t even understand what was happening. Half of the scenes looked fake too! You can tell when something is actually filmed or just green screened. On the flip side though they did have some really good camera angles throughout the movie, so props to the camera men for adding some good parts. I would have to give this movie a 2 out of 5 rating. The action parts that were shown were not the best but definitely kept your attention. Other than that nothing really jumped out at you that would have you remembering this movie or calling it one of your favorites. If you like bad acting, a confusing story line and fake scenes, then this is most definitely the movie for you! Otherwise, I wouldn’t waste your time watching it.

    Vertical Limit was an overall great movie that caught me off guard. With a release date in 2000 and the initial film quality when the movie started was displayed, most viewers would have been immediately turned off in this day and age because of the non HD picture and obvious use of greens screening right off the bat. Once the movie began to play out however, the effects began to appear more realistic (especially a scene which included climbers trying to jump off a helicopter onto the mountain in an extremely dangerous situation) and it was enjoyable to watch. There were a few parts where they could have done a better job, but overall it set the stage for a pleasant viewing experience that even people 10 years from now can still enjoy despite the obvious lack of technology that was available to them during shooting. The actors also did a great job in their roles, with everyone getting into their character and acting like professionals should without any of the obvious stutters or poor acting that you see in other movies. Music choice was spot on, dramatic for the dramatic parts and sad for the sad parts. Also no quirky transitions between both music and different clips, the transitioning process was smooth throughout the film. Definitely the most enjoyable aspect of this movie was the action scenes. From being heart wrenching to just violent, each action scene contained all of the elements to make it great. Starting the movie off with Peter cutting his dad loose, it plants the idea in the audience’s mind of whether or not they could do that themselves in his situation. After that were just plain old explosion clips to show off the “lovers of violence” who would want some violent scenes to be added to make the movie great. In conclusion I would recommend this movie to anyone that enjoys a suspenseful thriller without the gore of today’s horror movies.

  • Hailey GApril 23, 2013Reply

    Vertical Limit took corny and cheesy special effects to whole new heights. PUN INTENDED. Not only were special effect scenes over the top, but they were smothering the audience. Right after an “avalanche” occurred of course another character was about to be blown up or yet another “avalanche” occurred. The viewers could barely grasp what was happening before another tragic disaster was thrown full-throttle at them. But this was probably the only thing keeping the audience awake considering the clichĂ© plot and lifeless dialogue could easily put anyone into a deep sleep. I think it was evident to any movie-goer that the brother and sister duo were obviously not going to die due to their overwhelming key roles (just like any other clichĂ© action movie) while all of the minor characters were easily hacked off with a snap of a finger. This and their overwhelming tragedy of their father’s death left them as the ready-to-watch characters that quickly disappointed. The characters description and background story easily had the audience snoozing after probably the only interesting and genuine part of the whole movie, their father’s death. This movie went from extreme highs of too much action and ghastly special effects, to horrid lows that barely kept the audience in their seats. This movie was mediocre at best, and when I say mediocre I mean to say it was second-rate to all. Do not watch this movie unless you desire to waste the next two hours of your precious life.

  • Minerva OApril 23, 2013Reply

    Someone please tell me what I just wasted two hours of my life on… A mediocre film about a climbing adventure gone wrong and the countless lives that were sacrificed to save poor little Annie, that is what I wasted two hours of my life on. WHERE WAS THE PLOT! WHERE WAS IT! So predictable and so shallow. It was the classic, rescue mission movie. It’s dangerous, people will die, the hot girl always lives, everyone’s favorite characters die, the just get there in the nick of time, and then more things go wrong! BUT, I do have to give the writers credit for the nitro reaction in sun concept, that was not predicted. I thought the bombs were just highly unstable and could go off at any time; a slight curve ball for viewers. As for the characters in the movie, Peter and Annie were pretty basic. Peter has to sacrifice dad, Annie can’t let that happen, big Peter killing dad tension between siblings; child’s play. Of course Peter gets with the hot blond at the end even though they really only said like 5 words to each other throughout the whole movie and shared a lovely finger snapping scene together. Montgomery died, Aussie bros died (all pot head do in movies), and the Muslim guy died. Oh yeah, and Tom, but he was just kind of there as another dead body to put in the movie. So it only took like 4 rescue crew members to die until Annie could be saved (all hail Annie). Vaugh’s death though was pretty nice in my opinion, his character counts for at least one of these stars because I did not see that one coming. I knew the dude was unrealistic and selfish, but a murderer?! He is one bad apple! He let Montgomery’s wife die and shot an air bubble into Tom, dude knows how to do natural selection. I was impressed, but extremely saddened by his death. Also, another whole star in this impressive 2.5 rating is the special effects. Sure I could do some of those myself but they were pretty good for 2000. They really made the countless number of near death scenes really worth it in the end. Overall decent movie with a few unpredictable things, but for the most part it seemed like a really basic plot with the whole “dad tension” being exploited.

  • The Real Kyle CApril 23, 2013Reply

    Vertical limit was a boring and predictable movie. You could easily predict everything that was going to happen. All they did was repeat each scene but change who dies. When the sister got trapped, we obviously knew she was going to get rescued by her brother. At the end of the movie, the explosion to make the hole bigger so they could get the trapped hikers out, that would have killed them. It wasn’t realistic. For example, when the brother jumps across the cannon thinking hes superman, he would have snapped his arms and not lived that jump. Onto special effects, I thought it was good. The explosions looked real and the helicopter scene looked realistic. The greenscreening also was good. It really looked like they were on top of that mountain. Overall, the story line was weak, it was to predictable, and they tried to play a love story in the middle of a thriller. It doesn’t flow well. I give it a 4 out of 10

    A great old school climbing movie filled with actors who are still making good movies. Makes me wanna climb. Or at least watch Cliffhanger..

  • Bilbo BMay 13, 2013Reply

    Vertical Limit immediately grabs your attention with an exciting desert-climbing scene. Clips begin to snap and break loose, while bodies plummet to the bottom of a ninety degree cliff. This mishap puts a father, son, and daughter is an extremely emotional and spine-tingling situation. A son must choose to cut his father loose, or take the chance of all three of them plummeting to their deaths. The son is forced to let his father go. Many years later, the son finds himself in the same encampment as his sister due to his climbing partner breaking his leg and needing assistance. The sister and a team of climbers are scheduled to scale a large mountain and record a video at the top for a commercial. However, the weather does not look promising and may end up going sour. The tv guy wants to go up anyway. They all begin to scale and mountain as weather keeps getting worse and worse. It eventually gets to the point where they MUST turn back, but it was too late. An avalanche occurs and the sister, tv guy, and guide fall down a deep crack in the mountain. The opening is covered by the avalanche. A team of new climbers is organized by the brother to save them, but it will be extremely difficult. I cannot tell you how difficult because I have no idea. I didn’t finish the movie past this point because I caught a stomach bug. BUT, from what I saw up to that exact point, it would have been an incredible movie jam-packed with excitement and snow. The acting really helps bring a sense of realism to the film. It was definitely an attention-grabber. I would recommend the first half of this movie to anyone that likes snow and excitement. I cannot say the same for the second half because I have no idea what happens. I’m sure everybody’s going to be fine. Wink. What? Too much of a spoiler? Who cares, this movie was made in 2000. Who is going to go on Rotten Tomatoes to search for a review on Vertical Limit? ME. VERTICAL LIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!

  • Grant KMay 14, 2013Reply

    There’s a lot wrong with the script, (the suicidal rescue mission, the questionable actions of otherwise experienced climbers and most of all, the Nitro), but the budget, effects, cinematography, great cast and a non-stop script make this one hell of an entertaining expedition. Check your brain at the door and enjoy this high altitude roller coaster of a movie.

  • Richard RAugust 7, 2013Reply

    It’s worth a watch, most definitely for a laugh and for anyone who appreciated Cliffhanger. No it’s not a serious film about the perils of climbing and the dangers these people face in the extreme conditions (it’s not a fictional Touching the Void), it’s an action film about idiots flying helicopters half-way up K2 and jumping off onto a cliff. It’s about the same idiots carrying nitroglycerin in vials up the side of a mountain to rescue people buried in an avalanche. It’s about a maniacal Bill Paxton doing everything he can to stay alive and it’s about an overly ernest Chris O’Donnell trying to keep his career on track after Batman & Robin. But relax your brain and common sense and you might enjoy it, I did.

Oh well, still a decent flick, and that helicopter landing scene was oddly entertaining for a movie that is nearly a decade and a half old.

  • Jason MAugust 26, 2016Reply

    A shlocky and unrealistic depiction of mountaineering realeased in time to capitalize on the “Into Thin Air” book popularity at the time. The opening scene is the only memorable part of the film. The rest is silly fantasy, with scenes that are so far-fetched that they take away greatly from the overall film. After all, people interested in mountaineering want to see a film that is at least somewhat realistic, so they may relate a fictional plot from. However, when the technical aspects of the film are so fake, it is difficult to take any other aspect of this production seriously.

  • Brad SNovember 13, 2016Reply

    I had skipped this on its original release due to the poor reviews, but decided to finally give it a try due to the mostly solid cast. Chris O’Donnell stars and I’m not really a fan of his, with his performance serving as a suitable reminder as to why. I do like a lot of the supporting cast though, including Bill Paxton, Scott Glenn, Temuera Morrison, and in early roles Alexander Siddiq and Ben Mendelsohn. The film is directed by Martin Campbell who did “Goldeneye” with Brosnan and “Casino Royale” with Craig, so overall I thought perhaps it would e mindless entertainment. I was wrong. The effects and stunts are terrible, it appears to be mostly shot in a studio which kept pulling me out of the film. This movie really just doesn’t work. Skip it.

    As far as mountain climbing movies go Vertical Limit is one of the better efforts. While director Martin Campbell does his best to keep Vertical Limit at a consistently high level of excitement, he is occasionally betrayed by plot contrivances and special effects blunders. Nevertheless, when it comes to mountain climbing adventures, Vertical Limit is more effective than either the relatively obscure 1992 effort, K2, or the overblown Sylvester Stallone vehicle, Cliffhanger. With this movie, it’s possible to experience a few white knuckle moments without being in danger of catching frostbite. The acting is good- as good as it can be in a movie of this sort. This is a great film capable of transporting you to the foothills of K2.
