Editorial Reviews

K2, a 28,250-foot mountain in Pakistan's Karakoram Range, is the setting for this adrenaline-pumping action-adventure. It's a race against time when a retired mountain climber (Chris O'Donnell) leadsa rescue mission to save his estranged sister (Robin Tunney) and other members of her team who havebecome trapped on K2 after a deadly avalanche. Martin Campbell, the celebrated director of The Maskof Zorro and GoldenEye, delivers high-voltage action and exhilarating suspense in a film that pits man against his own limitations and the awesome power of nature's uncontrollable elements.

Customer Reviews

Lots of suspense, good story, great acting.
Erin K Rebar
Predictable and formulaic adventure thriller about a mountain climbing team stranded on K2 and the die hard rabble that set out to rescue them.
Amazon Customer
Thinking about the time wasted watching it, I would just as soon like to forget about it and say - the less said about this movie the better.

I love climbing books. I love climbing movies. Therefore, I was thrilled when this movie came out. It is an action packed, edge of your seat, high altitude climbing film. No doubt about it. There is even a cameo appearance by mountaineer Ed Viesters. The only real problem with the film is the plot. It is downright unbelievable, at times. If, however, you can suspend disbelief, you will still enjoy this film. I know that I did.
The film revolves around a brother and sister, played by Chris O'Donnell and Robin Tunney, who are estranged following the death of their father while climbing. His death scene is a real nail biter, as it deals with a situation that a climber hopes never occurs. Three years later, the sister is climbing professionally, while the brother has retired from climbing and is, instead, working as a photographer for National Geographic.
He and his sister inadvertently meet up on K2, the second highest peak in the world and probably the most perilous to climb, while he is on assignment for National Geographic, and she is there to climb. The sister is set to climb K2 as part of the climbing team put together by a millionaire played by Bill Paxton. For him, K2 is a trophy mountain, and he plans to climb it with the intention of reaching the summit just as the inaugural flight of the airline he owns is flying overhead. He has put together an ace team, but, alas, K2 has a mind of its own.
While climbing, they are overtaken by a storm, after the millionaire disregards his lead climber's warning that the team should turn back. The sister ends up falling into a crevasse. An avalanche kills off the rest of the team, except for the lead climber and the millionaire, who join the sister in the crevasse.

We viewed this movie at Branson, MO's IMAX Theatre. The larger screen and sound system in this theatre truly brought this movie to LIFE. We had wanted to see one of IMAX films like Alaska, or Dolphins and were somewhat disappointed when we found that this movei, Vertical Limit, was the only movie available that evening. We had dinner and then went to the "show". Within the first 5 minutes of this movie I was breathless and it NEVER STOPPED. The directing was astounding, the acting was believable and "unacting". The "stunts" were perfectly timed and precise to effect the wanted intensity. We were truly blessed to have caught this movie; easily the best action/drama movie I have EVER seen. I'm not a movie critic but I would certainly recommend (and have) that everyone enjoying a Thrilling/Chilling action movie see this one. I would see it again if I thought my heart could take a second trip up that mountain. It's definitely a two thumbs (that's all I have) up for this movie. You'll never see mountains the same way again.

While this movie is entertaining for both climbers and non-climbers alike, it is so for different reasons.

Climbers will find this movie hillarious (although a little irritating) with all it's factual inaccuracies. Even in the first scene of the movie it is obvious the director/writer has no climbing experience when the middle climber on a three person rope (roped up mountaineering style for rock climbing, no less) is belayed by his sister below him rather than his father who is anchored above him. And it just gets worse from there.

Non-climbers will probably find this movie to be both interesting and exciting - but please note that real climbing is nothing like that (most climbers have more common sense than this and do not have a death wish). But as simply an action movie for the masses, Vertical Limit is an excting movie and nothing more.

If you like senseless action sequences and random death but don't care about a plot... then by all means watch this movie. The story is so predictable that as soon as the Pakistani and Australian brothers volunteer for the improbable rescue, I found myself doing the sign of the cross for them. Only North Americans may survive this ... flick about the rescue of two "expert" climbers who walk into a storm at 26,000 feet for the sake of a publicity stunt by a billionaire and climber wannabe played by Bill Paxton. Mix into the story some nitroglycerine that seems to pick and choose when to explode, and you have a movie that will insult your intellingence like no other. The characters and the story are so poorly developed that you actually feel no sympathy for the stranded climbers, especially for Annie Garrett, sister of Peter Garrett (played awfully by Chris O'Donnell) who are totally responsable for the mess they are in... and the death of four rescuers and several porters to boot (but who is counting them).
Like me, you may find yourself rooting for the nitro when you watch this movie.
One final insult to the intelligence of the viewers of the DVD version, is seeing Robin Tunney telling us with ... ice sprinkled on her face, how she had to learn mountain climbing in 10 days to do this movie.
