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.

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".
