    I would give Everest 4 sheep! I found it full of tension throughout, I knew how it ends (In Thin Air) and still loved it. The vast beauty of the mountain really thrilled me. Sometimes I found it hard to make out the dialogue. I would recommend it for the sheer beauty of the filming…the mountain has the last word.

    By the time I realized everyone was going to die, mostly in pretty grisly ways, I was fairly shocked. I felt it wasn’t a pleasant film, in fact when the damned American who slipped and caused the biggest number of casualties wakes up and all the stops are pulled out to rescue him. I was beginning to feel uncomfortable.
    I would not recommend this film to anyone who is unaware of the dangers of mountaineering.

    I applaud Working Title for breaking new ground and not sticking to the ‘Into Thin Air’ version of the 1996 Everest tragedy, which is maybe why this book is not in this film’s Credits, something that has not gone unnoticed by some professional reviewers.

    Working Title/the Director referred to Jon Krakauer as ‘a writer who just happened to be on the mountain at the time’. To learn more about what actually caused this seminal event you will need to read ‘A Day to Die For’ and ‘After the Wind’. Well done Working Title and Baltasar Kormakur for daring to break the mold!
