But when they jump at the chance for the ultimate adventure—scaling K2, the second highest mountain on Earth—Taylor and Harold find themselves battling for their lives.

K2, the true story of the first two Americans to scale the world's second tallest, and certainly most deadly, peak has a realism to it that evades most mountaineering moves. It has scenes of transcendent beauty mixed with gorgeous music from Tangerine Dream, sure, but it doesn't skimp on the gritty, fatigue-ridden, bone-breaking chill of the reality of climbing either.
Not for the faint of heart or for people with acrophobia, but highly recommended for all others.
Harold and Taylor are the odd couple, but on another level they are true friends. The story is about bickering characters trying to function for a common goal. Sometimes it is painful. I am told it is common for climbers to be arrogant and pushy driven by a unyielding need to summit.
Not everyone summits K2. But a friendship along with it's hardships will not go away. Hats off! GJ
The film has a lot of action and adventure in it but it really speaks to the heart. It shows how one person can change and make a huge difference in another's life. If you haven't seen it you'll be touched and thrilled at the same time. If you have seen it you should add it to your collection. It's inexpensive in the full screen version and more expensive in wide screen but no matter how much it costs I think it's priceless!
