Critic Reviews for K2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

With its incredible panoramas of snowy peaks, and convincing stunt work at what seems to be a very high altitude, K2 makes an entertaining enough travelogue.

Forget about climbing the mountain, I found it difficult enough just sitting through this film.

October 10, 2006 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A well-photographed and handsome litany of cliche and stereotype.

January 14, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Manages to provide several credible answers to the famous and oft-asked question-why climb mountains?
