  • It gets a little wearing, hanging out with these lions, but there's no denying the beauty of the landscape, with its fluttering avalanches, plumes of powder and vertiginous, zigzagging descents.

  • A tedious movie about excitement.

  • As enchanting as all this alpine footage can be, as a movie, Steep is flat.

  • Sometimes it takes escaping death to feel alive -- especially if we have survived a cancer scare, a road accident or some other potentially fatal encounter. But Steep is about those who actively seek that dance with danger.

  • Steep is a throwback to the early days of movies when the sight of things in motion was a thrill in itself. Seeing leaves rustling in the wind or waves on the sea was a marvel.

  • Steep is one of those rare endeavors able to touch on the human condition without neglecting the film's true star: big-mountain skiing.
