This movie could have been a very good movie if the director wasn't trying to make a social statement with the film and if the lead actors had some actual chemistry between them.
** SPOILER ALERT ** Kate Winslet and Idris Elba could not have cared less about each other and it showed....man did it show. Kate Winslet is usually a good actress, but she was really straining during the love scenes. (Yes they DO it, Hollywood is obsessed with having white women drool over black guys). The love scenes were so unbelievable that the director didn't even show the final one in the film, it went straight to credits.
It is a shame that Hollywood is obsessed with the white woman, black guy narrative, this movie could have been so good without that narrative being shoved down the viewers throats the whole film.
Plus, the plot had the actors "concerned" about dying on the mountain numerous times but I NEVER had a belief that they were going to die. It was just not believable and a waste of drama.
Which brings me to "drama". There were many scenes that were supposed to be dramatic....and they too did not work.
Which brings me to the end of the film. Watching these 2-actors pretend to be in love was so painful....they simply could not pull it off. Not good.
I gave the film 4-stars, because of the beautiful scenery and the wonderful Labrador Retriever. The dog was the best part of the whole movie.
