Critic Reviews for Sugar Mountain

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

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.

December 9, 2016 | Full Review…

Despite a shaky premise, an engaging cast and a sinuous storyline make Sugar Mountain a moderately diverting adventure.

December 8, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Sugar Mountain

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.
