Audience Reviews for Into Thin Air: Death on Everest

After reading the book this was "based" on, I thought I would see what the movie was like. Granted this was a TV movie, but it was horrible. Over dramatized, over simplified, and bad acting to boot. Terrible!

i thought it started off kind of awful. the acting was pretty terrible but, some how, and i don't know if it was the hour of the night that i watched it but, it seemed to get better as the movie went on. i read the book and am usually pretty critical of books turned into movies but, i was impressed with how true to the book that it was. think the movie did a pretty good job of capturing this frustrating and heart wrenching account of the everest tragedy according to krakauer.
