it has truly awe-inspiring stunts and special effects and many of its suspense sequences will leave you with your heart in your mouth.

High adventure and vertigo blend with blood and bullets to make this tension-packed tall tale a spectacular avalanche of dizzying escapism.

The cinematography and gravity-defying stunt performances are exhilarating. The story, alas, is pure routine.

Nothing in Cliffhanger could possibly surpass that terrific opening jolt, but it's a smart, enjoyable summer action thriller nonetheless, directed by Renny Harlin with the focused energy of a Boy Scout earning badges.

Like the roller-coaster ride Cliffhanger clearly wants to be, the film sends you out pleasantly rattled and wobbly of gait.

We are not at Cliffhanger for realism; we're there for the cliffhanging, and there's plenty of it.

Big-budget nonsense that still manages to provide plenty of thrills thanks to its high-rise settings.

It may go down in screen history as the nail in the coffin of the Die Hard sub-genre, in which all the key elements of that blockbuster have been recycled to the point of self-parody.

Despite the don't-look-down Olympian settings, Cliffhanger's spirit is brutal and earthbound. The movie is like one of those computer-designed simulator rides that whip you around until you're dizzy and aching but don't actually take you anywhere.

As preposterous as this "Die Hard on a mountain" flick is, Cliffhanger remains one of the zestier big-budget action pictures of the nineties. [Blu-ray]

One of Stallone's best. Tense and Terrific.

A popcorn summer movie with Stallone where he belongs, in the wilderness as a primitive hero fighting villains and the elements.
