Mountain climbing expedition turns into rescue mission after ambitious capitalist ignores warnings. Boys own adventure stuff with enough mishaps and cliff hangers to fill five movies. Enjoy it for what it is. 3.5 stars

Fake snow, airbrushed actors, man-made cliffs- is the movie meant to be tongue-in-cheek? The acting is scripted and production-line. Implausible scenarios and a predictable storyline. Made to appeal to the lowest common denominator, this movie is a waste of time and money. Plastic schmaltz.

Mildly entertaining movie which is only watchable because of (now-outdated) special effects (which are not in the same league as Cliffhanger). The plot is too far-fetched and predictable. The so-called hero of the movie ends up killing 4 people to save his sister. However, if you are desperate for entertainment which doesn't require much brain-power this movie will suffice.

Great cast in this thriller/action movie. Watch this if you liked movies like Cliffhanger.
