It's all rendered in 3D, with the archival footage reformatted; you'll feel the Everest chill and gape at the astonishing vistas.
Recalled in the somewhat breathless History Channel-style voice-overs of the participants and their families, the journey was a triumph of guts, perseverance, endurance, ingenuity and teamwork.
This absorbing account of the first recorded summit of the world's highest mountain is a rare documentary for which re-enactments make complete sense.
Though impressively shot, the doc is a weak advertisement for 3-D.
Like a mountaineer grappling on sheet ice, the film's focus on performance can result in a loss of footing.
It's a testament to the film-making that, despite the fact that we know the outcome, there's a great sense of relief when they finally reach the summit.
We are learning to forget basic human achievements on their own. The Sherpas who have lost their families and friends know better of course. A movie like this is a sharp and well-made reminder to the rest of us.
Just as she did with her great The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls, director Leanne Pooley's work neatly refreshes our appreciation of a local legend.
The recreations are excellent, right down the props, visual effects and costumes, unlike a great deal of History Channel documentaries.
Pooley and cinematographer Richard Bluck bring the story to life - along with the vivid possibility of death -- and the big screen is the place to see it.
Beyond The Edge brilliantly blends archival footage and reconstructions provide an engrossing, if sometimes dry, retelling of a breathtaking achievement.
You can't help but wonder how much more someone like Werner Herzog could have done with the story.
An inspirational and often awe inspiring look at the British expedition in 1953 to conquer Mount Everest. Showing the true courage and bravery of those who tried and the sheer relentlessness of Everest itself. A great story of the power of the human spirit and of endurance.
