This rockumentary leaves Vertical Limit and Cliffhanger in the powder snow. The men's versions of the events are fascinating, often amusing and blatantly honest.

Vertical Limit is about as silly as movies come, but the only thing that really counts is whether or not the action sequences are exciting. And they are, in a big way.

fairly competent but standard action fare - Better than CLIFFHANGER but not as good as THE EIGER SANCTION

Campbell's rugged visuals (aided immeasurably by cinematographer David Tattersall) pull the film through the clichés and make it marginally exciting.

Once the initial character introductions and explanation of the rescue is out of the way, the film becomes enjoyable and thrilling.

The physical feats are inspiring, crowd-pleasing testaments to the stupendous extremes of human capabilities.

The pace of the movie rarely flags (neither does the idiocy, alas) and it's enough to warrant a marginal recommendation.
