The Summit Reviews

Dan Schindel

Structurally confused and suspect in its depiction of the events. Bad taste and poor decisions waylay any attempt at emotion.

Visually impressive and well-researched, The Summit certainly stirs up the terror and mystery that attended that disastrous weekend.

Remarkably, The Summit achieves some of the same dizzying impact as Gravity -- by philosophical and psychological means, rather than special effects.

The Summit rises above the foothills of cliché to bring some existential oomph to the accident scene.

The Summit picked up an editing prize at Sundance, which you can only surmise was awarded because the film does a fine job of leaving you as confused as the people on K2.

The subject is fascinating and the cinematic punch afforded by peaks so massive, inspiring with their terrible beauty is a filmmaker's dream.

Austin Chronicle

It still works as a cautionary tale of man vs. nature hubris, but the endgame finger-pointing among survivors, their families, and one amazing Nepalese sherpa leaves the viewer frustrated.

You have a tangled story being told by director Nick Ryan and writer Mark Monroe in a somewhat tangled way. The result isn't as much confusing as it is distracting.

First-time director Nick Ryan isn't entirely up to the challenge in "The Summit," but he does deliver some dramatic and visual highs in the attempt.

The seriousness of the climbers' predicaments overshadows practically every quibble with the story.

Shadows on the Wall

This strikingly well-made documentary about a harrowing real-life incident lets itself down by taking a too-ambitious approach to the narrative.

At once repetitive and puzzling. There is a lot of finger-pointing. Assertions are made, theories offered, but not much in the way of certainty.

'The Summit' is at its best when it tries to get to the bottom of what went wrong up on that mountain, which leads to exploring what sent these people up there in the first place.

There's something unsettling about a real-life tragedy presented as an action film; that the filmmakers never acknowledge this is more unsettling yet.

It's frustrating not to know exactly what occurred when, how and to whom. Of course, some of this is due to the fact that nobody really knows everything that happened, except, as someone notes, the mountain itself.

"The Summit" is an impressive achievement, but there's a good reason to ask whether cameras are turning the planet into a playground for the reckless rich: because it's there.

Ryan's film is visually stunning and viscerally powerful but nearly incoherent in its packaging of information.

A film that feels curiously hollow.

recounts a harrowing tale of endurance, heroism, majesty and human psychology, but for a sport defined by slow, steady progress, Nick Ryan simply jumps around too much.

When it simply sticks to the facts of the tragedy, The Summit is gripping stuff.
