Cliffhanger is a truly classic action movie. It's got all the best elements, including a humble, but brave hero, a hateful villain, a little bit of love, gut-wrenching action sequences, and all set against the spectacular Rockies. It also packs some great quotes!

A typical Stallone film, Old fashioned action film except never shooting a gun, Good story, Some solid effects for its time, Stallone was great one of his better films away from Rocky, Rambo and Expendables series.

Cliffhanger (1993) ???
$100,000,000 lost in the mountains; bad guys after it, Stallone caught in the middle of it who just happened to be climbing there. First-rate action movie is intense, populated by colorful, entertaining characters, crackling action, phenomenal, never-before-seen use of mountain photography and special effects that look real! Plus an opening scene that will have you at the edge of your seat! So much skill in the technical side is going on that you won't realize the story is pretty simple.

You have got to be kidding to me. I'm a rock climber. This was fiction, misfacts, and a poorly guided venture into what constitutes mountaineering.

A nearly perfect 90s action film. Real stunts and sets really sell the film and the acting is surprisingly good. Characters can be a little thin but it works for what it is.

A mediocre Action Film, but Stallone and the action shine together

Eric Qualen (John Lithgow) hijacks a plane delivering $100,000,000 to a Denver credit union with a group of professional thieves. They hit a snag, crash land and use the local mountain rescue team to help them find the cash spread across the surrounding mountains. During the hunt, Gabe (Sylvester Stallone) one of the mountain guides grabs some of the cash and makes a run for it. Knowing that Qualen (Lithgow) will kill his fellow ranger Hal (Michael Rooker) as soon as they find the last case, Gabe races the group to reach the money.

Great lines, heartless bad guys and a story line that just makes sense; Cliffhanger is a classic depiction of the action/adventure genre of the early 90s. Well worth 112 minutes of your time.

Sly's best out and out action film. It is a superbly enjoyable movie with some interesting characters, solid performances and Renny Harlins direction is stylishly assured. Stallone is rarely this interesting in his action films and he certainly looks the part in terms of the action scenes. This was one of the best action films of 1993 and one of the most thrilling and enjoyable of the 90's, a definite genre classic. As a Stallone fan this is one I look back on with fond memories. Plenty of superb action and Sly in prime action man form. Action lovers appreciate this film because it has all the hallmarks that make a good aciton film. The film looks great and there is great support from Janine Turner, Michael Rooker and John Lithgow

An under rated 90s Stallone action film that's actually kind of awesome

Classic Stallone movie, with incredible camera work, music (reminiscent of "Predator" though) and action scenes in beatiflul mountains.

Una de esas clásicas películas de acción de los noventa que tienen una magia especial, y que indudablemente beben de esa fuente de inspiración que fue La Jungla de Cristal.

Stallone ya ha demostrado en más de una ocasión que puede ser un héroe atormentado y golpeado por la vida con sus Rockys o la primera Rambo, y aquí una vez más lo consigue gracias a esa mezcla de acción y survival.

Quizás de los secuendarios solo podemos destacar al gran Rooker y Lithgow, pero con los dos nos sobra y nos basta.

A nivel más técnico no estamos ante una película de grandes alardes pero el uso de grandes angulares para mostrarnos los evocadores paisajes de las Rocosas ofrecen un contrapunto interesante a la acción que se da en la trama.

Una de esos clásicos que tendríamos que recordar más a menudo.

This was one of those movies I saw when I was a kid & it's stuck with me all these years, any movie that starts off with a person falling from a mountaintop is a keeper the story is a blend of high intense moments to dramatic one's great chase scenes to it's great villain portrayed by John Lithgow, to it's none-stop cuss words, this movie is very engaging Stallone does an wonderful job really the whole cast does an excellent job, the score was very memorable. Any movie that takes place on a mountain with this much action is a must see, love it or hate it Cliffhanger is pure fun start to finish.
