Polished without ever achieving much in the realm of suspense or emotional involvement.
The plot twists we get are not the ones we want. They look like complications, but they don't deepen the story or connect it to any wider ideas.
Pretty but oh-so-dumb, "Sugar Mountain" is the cinematic equivalent of a himbo.
Despite a shaky premise, an engaging cast and a sinuous storyline make Sugar Mountain a moderately diverting adventure.
This ridiculous thriller centers on just about the dumbest scheme ever invented for a movie, yet the filmmakers don't show any awareness of the plan's absurdity; it's played dismayingly straight.
Beneath the picturesque snowy Alaskan landscapes, there's not much suspense in this hollow thriller.
Sugar Mountain isn't flawless ... but, if you're willing to go along for the ride, it's an unexpectedly entertaining, gratifying 106-minute adventure.
Gray directs this entertaining thriller with plenty of heart, which shows in just about every aspect of the production.
Sugar Mountain isn't total rubbish, but narratively, it's all over the place and hamstrung by iffy lead performances.
An engrossing, visually stunning crime thriller.
Early promise for a ripe inspection of brotherly unrest is quickly dismissed by limited actors and a helmer who never seems to know what he's doing.
Despite some weaknesses in the script, miss opportunities, and Elwes' seeming incapability to deliver any lines without smugness, "Sugar Mountain" is actually a pretty good and entertaining film for a low budget project. The scenery was beautiful and Coffey was a stronger performer that I expected. Deception and plot twists come frequently enough to keep you guessing and on your toes. I was entertained enough to recommend the film, its shortcomings notwithstanding.
