Movie Info

This is the story of the 1996 Everest Film Expedition, a MacGillivray Freeman production in association with Arcturus Motion Pictures. Filmed in IMAX (R) photography, "Everest" is the dramatic true story of a team of climbers who found hope, strength and triumph in the wake of tragedy. Their successful ascent of Mount Everest, just days after fellow mountaineers and friends died there, is a compelling story about the human spirit and a mountain they love, respect and sometimes fear.more

Audience Reviews for Everest

I was really into this movie (even through the boring, lackluster narrative from the hiker, Ed Viesturs) until you get to the end and it tells you that many of the scenes were reenacted in Utah, Colorado, New Hampshire and California. REALLY?? Don't call this Everest, if it's not! Obviously some of this stuff was filmed there and it had to have been a pain to take this huge IMAX camera up Everest, but seriously... I felt like I had been lied to. No wonder they had all the snap shots on top of the mountain, they never got the film camera up there. It lost a half star for the false advertising. It was still visually cool to watch though.

A really well done IMAX film with a story that's incredible. The fact that the film makers were there during the events of Into Thin Air.
