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

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

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

Audience Reviews for K2


We had a string of these types of films back in the 90s - and as silly as it seems today, Michael Biehn was once a sought-after actor. I think he's making about $20 per movie now, working with the likes of scream queens.

(** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] The film did interest me, but I wish it wasn't so cliched. A near-miss.


Awesome! Great Cinematography. some amazing shots of the Real K2. Worth checking out if your an adventure nut like me... not worth it if pretty woman is in your "top Ten".
