Steep is more promo-reel than documentary.
September 26, 2008
Catch this on an IMAX screen if you're interested, but for a great movie about mountain-based triumphs of the human spirit check out the inspirational Blindsight instead.
September 26, 2008
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.
September 26, 2008
Remarkably, given the extraordinary descents captured on film and despite the less than subtle stirring score, the film is ultimately lacking in any real excitement.
September 26, 2008
Amazing imagery of remarkable achievements and a chronicle of the sport but one that could have dug a little deeper into the psychology of the extreme skiers.
March 7, 2008
There's awe-inspiringly beautiful footage in Steep and awe-inspiringly stupid talk.
March 7, 2008
A tedious movie about excitement.
February 27, 2008
As enchanting as all this alpine footage can be, as a movie, Steep is flat.
February 22, 2008
The tediousness becomes a little too palpable and the film's first half is frankly dull, despite some fine acting from Depardieu and Balibar.
January 18, 2008
In the end, you will believe the film's talking heads, but, more than likely, what they say may still make little logical sense to you.
January 18, 2008
If you like your skiing extreme but your documentaries safe, then carve a sharp turn over to Steep.
January 10, 2008
A second-rate documentary for extreme ski fans only.
January 9, 2008
In the end, Steep plays like a TV infomercial -- and who wants to hand over $11 to watch one?
December 24, 2007
so many shots of one person skiing down impossibly steep slopes that the film becomes mundane. The shots of snowy peaks are pretty, but they get pretty old after 92 minutes.
December 21, 2007
I'm not a skier. My balance is bad, and that stuff scares me. So more power to those who are - this flick's for you. And probably not anyone else.
December 20, 2007
For a portrait of a sport that's all about breaking the rules, the approach is far too reverent.
December 19, 2007
It takes a remarkable anti-ability to grab hold of a subject as visual and dramatic as big-mountain skiing and turn it into a dull night at the lodge.
December 18, 2007
An avalanche-in-progress aside, there's no hook for the audience, who would probably have more fun getting drunk in the lodge.
