Very entertaining and solid mountaineering movie
6 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this tonight and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is a Canadian Broadcasting Company docu-drama, made for television but has extremely high production values and is both well directed and acted.

The story, based on a true climb of Everest, tells the bittersweet tale of the 1982 Canadian expedition. While I have climbed a few hills, I am not really a mountain climber or big fan of the sport so I cannot comment on the technical aspects or historical accuracy depicted in the film but I saw nothing to argue with.

The screenplay was also very well done and ensured that there was an air of underlying suspense and humor throughout; it was entertaining and engrossing.

While William Shatner is prominently depicted on the cover art he really has a cameo role while the rest of the cast carries it off splendidly. At no time did I feel I was watching something made for television and wouldn't even have thought of it or commented had someone else not already mentioned it.

If you find the subject matter interesting, by all means give it a watch.
